The optical path and components of the ACF telescope design

All LX200 models feature a primary mirror locking mechanism, which effectively prevents movement of the primary mirror during long exposure astrophotography or observing. Turn the lock knob located just above the telescopes main focus knob and the progressive-tension primary lock completely cancels any residual image shift due to mirror movement during visual, photographic, or imaging applications.

The 10" LX200 Optical Tube Assembly has a 2500mm focal length, an f/10 focal ratio, and weighs 26lbs.

Designed and manufactured in North America.
