Product Description

Meade • 10 " LightBridge Truss-Tube Dobsonian Deluxe • 1005-05-03

The Meade 10” Lightbridge Dobsonian Optical Tube features not only multi-coated high quality optics and superior construction but in a true truss-tube Dobsonian design for extreme portabilty. The 10" f/5 LightBridge is a very capable deep sky performer, with a light grasp and image brightness over 50% brighter than an 8" telescope used at the same magnification. Despite the fact that this dobsonian telescope is so portable, this item has unique accessories built in. With Meade Optical aluminum coatings supplied of magnesium fluoride over the corrected lenses for outstanding reflectivity performance and a 2” Crayford-Style Machined Aluminum 1.25” Adapter Focuser, the Meade 10” Lightbridge Dobsonian Telescope In addition to being a king of portability, the Lightbridge 10” Dobsonian comes as a simple and part limited assembly. Therefore not only is it portable, but it is so compact that the average stargazer can take it with them in their car without hesitation.

Now of course, an easy process of setting up the scope is only half the picture and satisfaction. Scope performance is the other. With Meade’s famous aluminum magnesium-flouride coatings and a smooth and precise Crayford Focuser, the Dobsonian 10” Lightbridge has a magnificent and efficient light reflectivity management system to ensure the maximum amount of light is reflected and passed on to the user’s eye. To point the telescope to the proper point of the sky, an advanced Four-Reticle Red Dot Viewfinder is included for assistance. Meade has also ensured that the optics are in good hands while in use. This is why the 10” Lightbridge also comes equipped with a primary mirror cooling fan built in! Bringing a telescope to thermal equilibrium is so important not only because it keeps them working properly, but it prolongs performance longer. Accessories always add pleasure, satisfaction, and features to a user’s purchase. The Meade 10” Lightbridge comes with a 26mm QX Wide angle 2” barrel eyepiece with a 70° apparent field of view. Just gain even more! With all this said, it seems the Meade 10” Lightbridge is one might scope! With portability, great optics, great care, great accessories and finally, a great sky, this brilliant Dobsonian will certainly impress the astronomer to the point where their friends must have one too! Again, this Dobsonian is an absolute must have!
