The all new Meade LX80 Multi Mount   Three Mounts In One     Now you no longer have to make the difficult decision between the ease of setup and operation of an alt az mount or the versatility and long duration imaging capability of a German equatorial mount.  Meade's LX80 is the only mount that gives you both plus one more   three computerized GoTo Mounts for the price of one.     The new line of LX80 telescopes with Multi Mount is the most innovative and versatile mid range telescope system available anywhere.     Meade LX80 Multi Mount     The LX80 Multi Mount operates in three modes German equatorial single OTA alt az and dual OTA alt az.  Setting up in any mode is quick and easy.  The LX80 is built around a solid aluminum structure with two large tapered roller bearings that handle radial and thrust loads on each axis to carry larger loads up to a total payload of 40 pounds in EQ and alt az modes and up to 75 pounds in dual OTA mode.  Its precision worm gear drives on both axes deliver smooth accurate motion and Meade's proprietary SmartDrive provides periodic error correction that dramatically reduces errors providing performance only available on much more expensive mounts.  Both the primary and secondary OTA dovetail plates are industry standard for maximum compatibility with all of your OTA's.  The LX80 computerized GoTo mount is controlled with the amazing AudioStar handbox Vixen Style Side By Side Mounting system. Allows you to mount two telescopes side by side. The new Back Cell Adapter allows accessories that require a SCT thread to be attached to the ETX series of telescopes. Now you can attach focal reducers to the ETX and use it as a high quality astro photographic instrument. Attach flip mirrors off axis guiders or any other accessory that would require a SCT thread.Here's how it worksThread the Back Cell Thread Adapter onto the photo port of Meade's ETX 90/105/125 AT or PE version Telescopes. Now you can attach a f/6.3 or a f/3.3 focal reducer to the telescope and any other Meade accessories that require a SCT thread. The f/6.3 and f/3.3 focal reducers provide a larger field of view and cuts down the exposure time for these long focal length telescopes.Here are the focal length conversions for using the focal reducers on the ETX series telescopesNote: In order to attach the Meade Deep Sky Imager to the Back Cell Thread Adapter the optional 1.25 TeleVue 90 Everbrite DiagonalWhiter and brighter images. Simply put that is the benefit the Everbrite mirror coating. This exotic dielectric nonmetallic coating is 99% reflective across the full visual spectrum resulting in the 8 inches of light gathering aperture doesn't get more portable than this!     An 8 inch telescope is the right amount of aperture for viewing just about anything in the night sky. The Celestron NexStar 8 SE Telescope sets up and breaks down quickly (check out the video) and is great for taking to dark sky locations.     The largest of the NexStar SE family with 78% more light gathering than a 6 inch model the Celestron NexStar 8 SE Telescope will enable you to see deep into the universe.
