    A great scope that remains portable despite the aperture, in very clean used condition. Supplied with a 50mm finder scope. The base is swollen so not as smooth as it one was, it could do with a new thicker Lazy Susan bearing and that will make it glide well again :) This is a collection only or very local delivery item so it is excluded from my online checkout!

    In good used condition, it shows signs of use to the tripod and plastic but nothing garish This scope is a great combination of aperture as well as portability it is about as large as you can lift comfortably and set up on our own. Most people can do 12" but if I am honest you do need to be fit and strong So if you want big and easy to use I give you the LX90 12" SCT Telescope, on top of this it is fitted with a very good goto system that is simple to use. Please note this item is local delivery only or collection in person so it is excluded from our online checkout. If you do liver further afield than this we will still be able to deliver at an pre agreed cost ..

The 150mm aperture enables you to observe bright nebulas in the depth of space. Find the remnants of a gigantic stellar explosion from the year 1054 in the Taurean constellation, or scan the glowing bands of the great Orion Nebula. Detect the famous Whirlpool Galaxy in the Big Dipper or find the Dumpbell-Nebula in the constellation Vulpecula (little fox). The high rigidity of the EXOS-2 mount allows for relaxed observations and is helpful for those making their first attempts at astrophotography.Characteristics:- High end focuser with 2,5" free inner diameter- All telescope axes supported by ball bearings for smooth tracking- Adjustable polar finder scope- ST-4 compatible autoguider interface- All aluminium cast parts with high end powder coating- Brass worms with ball bearings- GoTo Mount with motors and hand box controller, for easy finding and guiding moon, planets, stars and much more- Bubble level for easy tripod setup- 8x50 straight through viewfinder with reticle; optimized finder socket for comfortable use- 31.7mm (1.25") diagonal mirror- Cradle rings with handle and integrated piggyback camera holder (1/4 thread)- Dovetail plate with stainless steel rail ..

Details from the web below: No competing Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope can make those claims. The LX90-ACF is the perfect platform for the demanding visual observer and imaging enthusiast with telescopes available in apertures of 8 inches, 10 inches, and 12 inches. When it comes to industry-leading optics, depth of features, and computerized operation, the LX90-ACF is the best all-around telescope value you can find. UHTC coatings Meade UHTC is a series of exotic optical coatings precisely tuned to optimize the optical performance of your LX telescope. Image brightness is increased by nearly 15% over standard coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies and nebulae as observed through your LX will be dramatically brighter. Even observations of the Moon and planets will benefit in increased image brightness from the full spectrum of light transmission. GPS - LX90-ACF can do more than track satellites. It talks to them as well. Turn it on and the built-in Sony® GPS sensor immediately determines your precise date, time and location. AutoAlign™ then uses this info to align your scope for a tour of the most spectacular sights in the universe. With all the features of the legendary LX90GPS, plus the additon of Advanced Coma-Free optics and the ability to communicate to satellites, the new LX90-ACF now has it all. EASY ALIGN - LX90s are smart scopes that know the night sky right out of the box. Easy Align picks two alignment stars for you and places them right in your viewfinder. Just center them to fine tune your alignment and the wonders of the universe are at your fingertips. OVERSIZED PRIMARY MIRROR - Only Meade manufactures their primary mirrors in diameters larger than their listed aperture (e.g. the diameter of the 8" LX90’s primary mirror is actually 8.25").This additional 1/4" yields a wider, fully illuminated field-of-view, and allows you to see the light other telescopes leave behind. SLEW SPEED - The LX90-ACF slews (moves) from star to star at 7 degrees per second. That is more than twice as fast as the competition. This means that over the course of an evening, a Meade LX90-ACF will show you two to three times more objects. RIGID CAST ALUMINUM FORK MOUNT - The Meade LX90-ACF's Optical Tube Assembly is mounted on two sturdy fork arms giving you a rock solid platform for astrophotography. LX200 - SERIES TRIPOD - The LX90-ACF comes standard with the same sturdy field tripod as the LX200-ACF series telescope. SMART DRIVE - Meade’s AutoStar provides Periodic Error Correction (in polar mode). Over the course of one or more training periods your LX90-ACF will minimize guiding corrections during long exposure astrophotography. AUTOSTAR CONTROLLER - Meade’s AutoStar can be updated after purchase. Download software upgrades, guided tours and timely objects like comets, satellites and new discoveries – Free! Keep your AutoStar up-to-date, and your LX90-ACF will grow with you for years to come.
