Meade's LX90 ACF is a favourite of astronomers making the jump to their first, serious, large aperture
telescope. Performance, quality, value and ease of use are the hallmarks of a great telescope.
Now’s your chance to own the legend.
The Ascension premium apo-chromatic refractors were the first reasonably priced
triplet ED telescopes widely available in the UK that use a high quality Japanese ED
triplet (premium FCD1 ED). These first-class photo-visual instruments offer unequalled
value for money and come in three different sizes (80mm F6, 102mm F7 and 127mm F7.5).
The DS-616C XL+ 6 mega-pixel camera is in a class of its own with 50% higher sensitivity in real-world applications (100% max) than other cameras using the same Sony CCD due to its hardware
gain and outstanding hardware noise suppression, both features implemented in the camera's hardware. New PLUS model!
These all-new Ascension Super Wide Angle 70 degrees eyepieces are made of high
index glass. They come with fold-down rubber eyecups, filter threads, blackened
lens edges and anti-reflection threads for maximum contrast.
