This award-winning 6" f/10 (1524mm focal length) powerhouse telescope is feature packed and portable. Meade's patented automatic self-alignment system aligns with just one touch of the power switch. Just flip the switch and walk away.

Meade's best ACF optics deliver performance only seen previously in systems costing thousands of dollars more. With its standard Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) the LS gives you the sharpest, brightest optical system for its size available at any price.

The included AutoStar III GoTo keypad computer has an over 100,000 object library and guided tour functions. Includes Meade ECLIPS color CCD camera (640x480 resolution) which lets you capture images of your favorite celestial wonders and display them in real time on an external (user supplied) monitor or store them on a (user supplied) SD card so you can do CCD imaging your very first night out.

The included Astronomer Inside feature delivers over 4 hours of fun and informational audio presentations which can be heard over the built in speaker, and 30 minutes of video presentations and animations plus hundreds of still images which can be watched over an external (user supplied) TV or monitor.

Eight (user supplied) C cell batteries will run the telescope for 3–5 hours. Includes a highly rigid single fork mount featuring aluminum construction with massive 4.875" precision worm-gears. Standard equipment also includes a sturdy, adjustable height tripod with steel legs for great stability and vibration damping and a Series 4000 Meade 26mm Super Plössl eyepiece (59X magnification).
