Telescopes – state

Aperture telescope Meade 12 “f / 10 LX200 ACF / UHTC optical system Ritchey-Chretien – device class Hi-End,  which is able to satisfy even the most demanding astronomer. The optical layout of the telescope LX200 ACF / UHTC is comparable with professional tools. The best quality telescopes in the world including the Hubble Space Telescope, are built in a similar way – Ritchey-Chrétien. A complete set of automation of the process of positioning, search and guidance  facilitates the process of observation as much as it is possible. A unique opportunity to remotely manage a professional telescope. Highly skilled workers of Sponli Observatory configured and fully prepared all the equipment for observation. Rent a telescope. Magnificent Meade Optics Unique optical design, ACF (Advanced Coma-Free). MEADE engineers,  were the only ones in the world who were able to apply this technology in an amateur telescope, capable of surprising with quality images even the most experienced astronomers. This scheme eliminates the very unpleasant kind of optical distortion, typical for conventional optical systems, so-called coma. Therefore, the telescope LX200 ACF / UHTC, is using the ACF technology, such as a sharp, clear, distortion-free images, as well as in professional telescopes. Good light diameter (305 mm) and luminosity (f / 10) of the telescope in conjunction with  the patented Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) provide bright and sharp image over the entire field, as well as allow you to look into the most remote corners of the universe.
