    Hi and thanks. We’ve got lots of customers enjoying using the LS (and LT) range of telescopes for astro-photography. But the field rotation problem and the fact that the LS cannot be operated in equatorial mode limits long exposure photography to under a minute – and that’s if you are imaging a target on or very near the celestial equator. Anywhere else, and your images will be marred by circular star trails of increasing severity as you move out from the centre of the image. KR A&NC

    Update: The LS is now available in 8″ aperture. Clear skies A&NC.

    wow nice. Kinda of pricey. But lots of new stuff. Good too see USB/ SD card ability. The ability to transfer video direct is really nice. Sure it wont give you stellar views of DSO’s, but for planets..thats pretty neat. Lots of tech for the moeny

    I’ve been looking at the new 8 inch version of this scope on Meade’s website and it looks very impressive. I used to own a Meade Newtonian and that was ancent technology compared to this. I am wondering though what your opinion is on this scope for doing some astrophotography? I am concerned about it tracking well enough to stay steady for long exposures. Thanks for the vid.
