The LX65 Series 5" MAK features a Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design for pinpoint star images and extraordinary contrast, making it a great deep sky performer and ideal for detailed lunar and planetary observation as it easily soars to high magnifications. Features a 5" (127mm) aperture, 1900mm focal length, and f/15 focal ratio. Equipped with an internal single speed focuser and Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™) for the improvement of brighter star clusters, more fine detail in nebulae, and greater surface features on planets. Includes (1) 26mm, 1.25" Super Plossl eyepiece and a red-dot viewfinder along with a vixen-style dovetail. The OTA alone weighs 6.2 lbs and has dimensions of 5.8” x 14.3”.

SINGLE-ARM MOUNT
The LX65 features a newly designed single-arm mount with Meade’s AudioStar® Hand controller. This new mount is compact, yet sturdy, providing a great combination of portability and performance. Additionally, the LX65 has the ability to hold two optical tubes, making your experience twice as enjoyable! With its quick and portable setup, you’re ready to start observing in minutes. The LX65 system breaks down into 3 compact pieces and does not require any tools, making it a breeze to transport to your favorite dark sky location!

This versatile scope features two dovetail receivers that allow you to use two optical tubes at once, for a chance to observe your objects both in wide field or close up! The main saddle can hold up to 14lbs, while the secondary saddle can hold up to 7lbs. The max payload capacity for the LX65 mount is *21lbs. This added versatility makes the LX65 great for astronomy outreach or sharing the night sky with others and will be sure to impress anyone with its technology and optics.

*The max payload capacity for the LX65 mount is 21 lbs. - that is the combined load capacity only. We don’t recommend anyone put 21 lbs on the main dovetail saddle or the secondary saddle.*
