Meade 8" LX200

8" Meade LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain reflectorComputerised Alt-Az Fork Mount

The club received this telescope in 2000 for the most funds raised as part of the annual Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon "Telescopes For Telethon" program. Although a 10" scope was offered, the club requested the smaller 8" so we had a lighter telescope for our scope loaner program.
