Telescopes – state

Meade’s 16″ f/10 LX200ACF/UHTC brings Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) optics within reach of aspiring astronomers everywhere. Nearly every observatory reflector in the world uses an aplanatic (coma-free) optical system like the Ritchey-Chrétien (RC), including NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope. Now you can own similar optics to what the professionals use. Meade Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™) Increasing total light transmission and image brightness by nearly 20% over Meade’s standard coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies and nebulae will appear significantly brighter.

A unique opportunity to remotely manage a professional telescope.

Highly skilled workers of Sponli Observatory configured and fully prepared all the equipment for observation.
