    Comments about Meade 10 Inch LX200-ACF Advanced Coma Free Telescope with UHTC:

    The 'Go To' is dead on. Very nice finish. Lets in more light than my 8" had. One night I was out in the middle of a cornfield, and the Sheriff came out to investigate what my car was doing there, after he found out I got permission for the land owner, he said, "Wow that looks expensive". Anyway, Im really glad I got this scope, its a bit heavy, so you may have to keep up with your pushups inorder to lift it. Thanks again Meade..

    Comments about Meade 10 Inch LX200-ACF Advanced Coma Free Telescope with UHTC:

    I bought this scope about a week ago and it works
    great.I train the drives and adjusted the backlash.The optics are great,collamination on the scope is dead on,no adjustment needed.Took it
    out and did the autoalignment,it work very well,but doing the manual two star alignment is faster and is less stress for the motors when doing the autoalign.This scope is great and it work great out of the box.Keep it going Meade!

    Comments about Meade 10 Inch LX200-ACF Advanced Coma Free Telescope with UHTC:

    I have owned this scope since August of 2009 and I purchased from telescopes.com. I haven't had as much time out with the scope as I would have liked but most astronomers know why, the clouds for the winter of 2009 - 2010 have been pretty bad. I've had enough time with it now to write a review though.I've got 5 telescopes ranging from an 80mm APO to the Meade LX200GPS 14". This LX200 10" is my favorite scope to viewng! As I also have a Meade LX200GPS 14" I have often put it side by side with the 10" LX200 ACF for visual comparison. It is what it is, a coma-free field of view. My older LX200GPS does not have these optics and that is why my LX200 ACF is my favorite scope to view with.I have now imaged through the scope and it performed admirably. I have not as yet controlled the scope through a computer but the included software allows for this (data cable must be purchased seperately). Since the scope is relatively heavy (about 95 pounds with the tripod) I have purchased wheelie bars for it and this has helped tremendously for moving the scope around. I've had this scope out in 18 degree nights with no problems at all (was also using a dew heater).I've only had 1 problem with the scope since it was purchased, this was the GPS unit. I contacted Meade and they shipped me a new GPS unit out without me having to package up the scope for shipment (THANK YOU Meade). I completed the repair myself in about 10 minutes.I love the scope and use it as often as I can.

    1 Question About This Product
    Q: "How hard/easy is this scope to set up?"
    A: The Meade 10 Inch LX200-ACF Advanced Coma Free Telescope with UHTC & Standard Tripod is a little heavy but a simple set up. It will come in 3 different parts. The tripod, the mount, and the optical tube. The mount connects to the tripod and the optical tube fits to the mount. The connection is simple to set up and take apart for travel.
