Meade LX850 EQ mount with Starlock

Item Description:

The mount Meade LX850 with Starlock:

The new MEADE LX850 equatorial mount made of high-strength aluminum and stainless steel provides a precise tracking platform, even for larger optics. This accuracy is achieved by the 147mm worm wheels and the 17mm snails. The GPS-protected computer control of the AutoStar II positions celestial objects from a 144,000-large database.

The MEADE StarLock is a highly accurate system that enables precise object positioning and tracking. The two built-in cameras with different optics play together perfectly. The wide-field camera ensures a rough positioning. The near-field camera can then position objects with an accuracy of up to one minute of arc.

The alignment also takes place via these two cameras. They bring the required alignment stars to the very center, as the basis for an optimal GoTo.

For maximum tracking accuracy, the StarLock works with a permanent and automatic autoguiding. As soon as the telescope returns to tracking mode after a movement (for example, after positioning a celestial object), the near-field camera automatically searches for a suitable guide star up to a maximum brightness of 11 magnits. This is then tracked as long as the telescope is moved again.

The Drift Alignment Assistant enables optimal parallactic alignment. The LX850 drives a matching star. Using a 30-second long-field camera, the exact deviation of the telescope from the true celestial pole is calculated. The LX850 approaches the previously calculated true position. With the help of the fine adjustment of the mount, the telescope can now be adjusted exactly to this point.
