Meade Standard Field Tripod

ReikiDave, opticsplanet.com
15 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought this tripod to replace an older model Meade standard field tripod damaged in shipping. The old model had two tighteners per leg, the new one has only one on each leg. With a heavy, expensive scope mounted on it... I'd feel better with the two, just in case!
  • Pros: Very solid feel
  • Cons: two tighteners on each leg now reduced to one.

  • Pros: shows objects well, easy to find objects
  • Cons: setup and collimation takes about 1/2 hour

Meade 10" LX90 GPS Telescope with UHTC w/ GPS & LNT, Meade Autostar Computer Controller 1010-90-61

Mark Klebanoff, opticsplanet.com

  • Summary: I bought the Meade LX90GPS 10 inch. The quality of the image is amazing. It will blow your mind. However, the weight of the telescope is an issue. I suppose that is the obvious trade-off with telescopes. I can barely lift it myself. Its really a 2 person operation. One consequence of the weight is the scope actually fell over at one point while trying to move it - and its currently back at Meade for $400 of repairs.

Meade 10" LX90 GPS Telescope with UHTC w/ GPS & LNT, Meade Autostar Computer Controller 1010-90-61

  • Summary: Wonderful technology. It talks to you, tells you the date and time and location and tells you all about the stars and things you view in the sky. This is highly recommended. The only problem is it is a little bit on the heavy side; other then that it's great!

Great optics, highly portable GoTo telescope

  • Summary: If you can afford the Meade, go for it, you won't be dissatisfied. If you want a Celestron, buy the Celestron, but get better eyepieces.
  • Pros: Quality optics, Easy to set up GoTo function is essential
  • Cons: GoTo only works if properly aligned, which can be a problem.
