Meade LXD75 SC-8AT 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope - 08107501 : LXD75-08107501

Meade LXD75 SC-8AT 8Meade LXD75 SC-8AT 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope - 08107501 - LXD75-08107501. The new Meade LXD75 SC-8AT 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope offers a high-performance equatorial mount, heavy-duty, all-metal field tripod and precision drive system. The Meade LXD75 SC-8AT includes an electronic hand controller and is fully compatible with Meade's popular Autostar Suite. Stable Meade LXD75 German Equatorial Mount is designed for high-performance observing and astrophotography, the LXD75 Series sets a new Meade standard in their price class for sturdiness, precision operation and smoothness of movement. With the LXD75, Meade engineers have created a virtually backlash-free equatorial mount incorporating heavy-duty castings and four high-precision stainless steel ball bearings in both RA and Dec axes. The reliable LXD75 drive system has enhanced precision alignment of the motor gear assembly for greatly reduced backlash and tracking smoothness.

Specifications for Meade LXD75 SC-8AT 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

Aperture:  8" (203mm)
Focal Ratio:  f/10
Focal Length:  2000mm
Corrector Lens:  White Water
Primary Mirror:  Pyrex
Viewfinder:  8 x 50
Hand Controller:  AutoStar

Features of Meade LXD75 SC-8AT 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

  • 2" Focuser: Aluminum rack and pinion focuser allows the user to achieve a precise focus.
  • Eyepiece Holder: Accepts both 1.25" & 2" eyepieces. Allows use of all common telescope accessories and cameras.
  • 8x50 Achromatic Viewfinder: Easily locate and center deep-sky objects.
  • Made in the U.S.A. and Performance Tested: All Meade Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain optics are manufactured at Meade's state-of-the-art facility in Irvine, Calif., then performance tested on an Interferometer.
  • Sturdy Mount with Heavy-Duty Castings: Designed by Meade's engineers and manufactured for high-performance observing and astrophotography.
  • Shaft & Bearing System: The sturdy German Equatorial Mount is accurate and precise. The RA and Dec axes move effortlessly on four high-precision stainless steel ball bearings.
  • High-Precision Worm Gears: Located on both axes for smooth tracking and slewing.
  • High-Precision Pointing (HPP): For even more-precise pointing, use the HPP function. HPP puts objects in the center of the field-of-view, which allows you to confirm deep-sky objects at the faintest limits of the telescope's capability.
  • Periodic Error Correction: Corrects periodic errors on the RA axis over the course of one or more training periods, thereby minimizing guiding corrections during long-exposure photography.
  • 9-Speed Drive Controls: From a rapid slew rate of 4.5/sec. to 1x sidereal it's all controlled from the Autostar controller.
  • 3-Star Alignment: Ensures precise alignment while eliminating the need for a complicated optical/mechanical alignment process.
  • Heavy-Duty Tripod: Variable-height field tripod with spreader bar brace provides the stability and vibration damping required for visual observation and astrophotography.
  • Illuminated Polar Alignment Viewfinder: For quick, precise polar alignment.
  • Power Supply: Powered by 8 D-size batteries. Can also be powered by optional car cigarette lighter or AC wall adapter.

Meade has announced its latest MEADE LXD75 Telescopes, a line of high-quality equatorially mounted telescopes with computerized GoTo-type operation (or electronic operation with computer upgrade optional).  Meade LXD 75 telescope line includes Schmidt-Newtonians, Schmidt-Cassegrains, achromatic refractors and a single Meade Newtonian telescope model. The new Meade telescopes feature a high-performance equatorial mount, heavy-duty, all-metal field tripod and precision drive system. The new Meade LXD75 telescope mount holds similarly configured, but improved optical tube assemblies to that now offered with Meade LXD55 telescopes.  Meade LXD75 telescopes (8" f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain, Schmidt-Newtonian models, Achromatic Refractor models, and a 6" f/5 Newtonian reflector) are shipped FREE within lower 48 states!

MEADE LXD75 Telescopes are using similar optical tube assembly, but the following are improvements to the previous Meade LXD55 telescopes have been made in Meade LXD75 telescopes.

New Design MEADE LXD75 Equatorial Mount



Designed for high-performance observing and astrophotography, Meade LXD-75 telescopes set a new Meade standard in their price class for sturdiness, precision operation, and smoothness of movement. With the MEADE LXD75 telescope line, Meade engineers have created a virtually backlash free equatorial mount incorporating heavy-duty castings and four high-precision stainless steel ball bearings in both RA and Dec axes.

New Design MEADE LXD 75 Telescope Drive System



The reliable MEADE LXD75 drive system has enhanced precision alignment of the motor gear assembly for greatly reduced backlash and tracking smoothness.

New Design Meade Heavy-Duty Tripod for LXD75 Meade Telescopes



The new Meade heavy-duty, all-metal field tripod utilizes a locking spreader bar (with three 1.25" eyepiece holders) to lock each leg in place, virtually eliminating flexure. Each leg has two anodized aluminum leg extension locks with an internal brake to eliminate slipping of the internal extending leg. These locks are inward facing so that no accidental bumping of the leg locks can occur.

New MEADE Optical Tube Assembly



Meade's diffraction-limited pptics of Meade Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes yields stellar images over an extremely wide field-of-view.  The MEAD LDX75 Schmidt Newtonian telescopes (6" f/5, 8" f/4, and 10" f/4) and the Achromatic Refractors (5" f/9, and 6" f/9) are supplied with an upgraded Meade 8x50 viewfinder, and the standard precision all-metal 1.25"/2" O.D. rack & pinion focuser. The Meade refractors also have improved metal dew shields and heavier duty objective cells. In addition, like the Meade 6" refractor, the Meade 5" telescope has had a system of collimation screws added to the main objective cell.  

A new attractively priced Meade 6" f/5 Newtonian reflector with 6x30 viewfinder joins this series and Meade 6" telescope is available with the original Meade EC controller or the Meade #497 Autostar Controller as standard equipment.

Autostar Suite/LPI Included as Standard Equipment on MEADE LXD75 Models with Autostar.



Adding significant value to the MEADE LXD75 Telescope Series, Meade's popular Autostar Suite and Lunar Planetary Imager (LPI) Imager/Autoguider is an included feature - the AutoStar Suite Lunar Planetary Imager (LPI) lets you capture and process stunning images of night sky. Now you can start immediately taking advantage of controlling their Autostar-equipped MEADE LXD75 telescope from your computer! Updating the Autostar controller for the latest objects and custom-authored tours is a breeze, just go to meade.com, as well as downloading amazing high-resolution images of the Moon and planets from the telescope.  The Meade AutoStar Suite/LPI only comes with AT models of the LXD75 telescopes. It can be added to the EC models at a later date (along with the AutoStar Controller).

Meade MEADE LXD75 telescopes with MEADE Autostar that will include Autostar Suite/ LPI:
  • MEADE LXD75 SN6-AT Telescopes and MEADE LXD75 SN6-AT Telescopse w/ UHTC
  • MEADE LXD75 SN8-AT Telescopes and MEADE LXD75 SN8-AT Telescopes w/ UHTC
  • MEADE LXD75 SN10-AT Telescopes and MEADE LXD75 SN10-AT Telescope w/ UHTC
  • MEADE LXD75 SC8-AT Telescopes and MEADE LXD75 SC8-AT Telescopes w/ UHTC
  • MEADE LXD75 AR5-AT Telescopes
  • MEADE LXD75 AR6-AT Telescopes


The Meade AutoStar GoTo controller helps you quickly find objects in the night sky. You can locate planets, stars, galaxies, nebulae, and comets with a push of a button. Mead AutoStar is pre-programmed with over 30,000 night sky objects and several guided tours.  The Meade AutoStar controller is not included with the EC models of the Meade LXD75 telescopes, but it can be purchased from OpticsPlanet.com and installed any time later .

Meade Schmidt-Newtonian and Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes are manufactured and tested in the U.S. at Meade's state-of-the-art facility in Irvine, CA, and come with full USA warranty from Meade if you buy it from OpticsPlanet.com.
