Product Description

Description:

"The Meade 6" (152mm) f/10 LS LightSwitch Telescope features the most advanced electronics and optics ever applied to a consumer telescope. Meade is producing the easiest-to-use, educational, high performance telescope on the market by combining LightSwitch Technology, Advanced Coma Free Optics (ACF), Astronomer Inside multimedia output and a completely new mechanical design. The LightSwitch Technology alignment system is for completely hands free alignment. Using the Integrated Sensor Module and the built-in ECLIPS CCD imager on the telescope tube, the LightSwitch Technology allows the telescope to completely align itself with the sky without any input from the user. The user simply flips the LightSwitch on and the telescope finds its location, time, date, north, level, then locates and centers the alignment stars for a perfect alignment every time without user input.Take a multi-media guided tour of the universe, or select your favorite object and the LS' Astronomer Inside gives you fun and informative audio descriptions of over 500 objects while you view them in the eyepiece - or experience the whole dazzling multi-media presentation on an attached video monitor - complete with audio, video, still images and text. The easy-to-use hand-held controller lets you select from a huge object database, with over 100,000 celestial objects. Just select an object and push the "GoTo" button and the telescope will automatically put your object in the eyepiece.
