Meade LX Ads

A Stroll Down Telescope Memory Lane!

Here we have a collection of classic (vintage?) Meade magazine ads from Sky & Telescope from the 1980's and 1990's. Interestingly, the ads appear to tell the story of how Meade's 2080 and 2120 telescopes evolved over time. If you own a Meade LX-Series telescope (2080/2120 LX / LX2 / LX3 / LX5 / LX6 / Premier / etc), you may want to have a look at the Meade LX Registry page!
