Impressive Optics–Because of its diffraction-limited primary mirror and 12-inch (305 mm) aperture, the Meade LightBridge 1205-05-03 provides enough resolution to clearly view objects outside of our solar system. The telescope also comes with AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition Software to help users check star and planet locations.
Open Truss–Open truss technology on this telescope keeps the primary objective mirror and secondary mirror parallel with each other for optimum light circulation. The rigid frame also features a fan, which speeds up the primary mirror’s cooling process, enhancing image quality.
Premium Mount–Featuring a laminated wood finish, the telescope’s mount is a unique, high-quality design. Roller bearings on the side axis and aluminum bearings on the vertical axis ensure smooth and stable movement. A hand-powered tension brake gives you full control over the vertical axis as you adjust your viewing angle.
Extremely Portable–Despite its 80-pound weight, this model is extremely portable. It assembles and disassembles in minutes and has a relatively small footprint. For a telescope with this aperture, it’s one of the few that will fit in the back seat of your car.
Lacks Some Important Features–This is a high-quality unit, but the LightBridge 1205-05-03 lacks a few important features. This model comes with only one eyepiece, doesn’t support astrophotography and doesn’t include a collimation tool, which helps align the mirrors.
