Meade LX70 R5 90 Day Review

I review my Meade refractor nearly 90 days after first light on March 17th. I’ll tell you what I like and don’t like about it.

The longer one goes on the lower axis

John Doe says:

Had a chance to check one of these out at a Star Party, good build quality, good optics.

Hydden N. Plainsyght says:

As you had it mounted in this video; I am only asking (I cannot tell), despite balancing the scope, diagonal & eyepiece to the counter-weight, did you by any chance happen to balance the scope diagonal & eyepiece laterally/horizontally against the objective (i.e.; by leveling and loosening the counter-weight shaft horizontally)?

Hi JOE,    Looks like the scope does pretty well? The Kitties must be camera hogs? BE SAFE

Miguel Blancourt says:

I have the R8 reflector. LX70 series has very good scopes for their prices. Im agree with all your comments. The optics of these scopes is outstanding and the mount is solid as rock. Congrats for purchased this scope and enjoy it.
Greetings from La Paz-Bolivia!

Garry Watkins says:

Excellent video! I have been looking at specifications and reviews of this scope for the past 2 days.

Hydden N. Plainsyght says:

My goodness; that’s a lot of cats for one refractor.

Kanishk Tatipamula says:

the cats are photo bombing

Wire Works says:

The cables are put on wrong.

Thanks for your review. Do you know if this scope has a collimatable lens cell?
