Top 10 Beginner's Telescopes over $1000



If you have spent some time observing the sky with your naked eyes and a pair of binoculars, you may be ready to move on up to telescopes. As in most things in life, you typically get what you pay for. If you are looking for better telescopes to start out with, one which might carry you from a beginner to intermediate stargazer, check out these beginner's telescopes over $1000.

1) Meade 14" LX200 GPS-SMT Telescope

Fitted with a wealth of technological features and high-quality optics previously unavailable to advanced amateurs, the new 14 inch LX200 GPS-SMT Telescope with UHTC enhances the high-quality resolution and resolving power available in previous LX200 models. The 14" LX200 GPS-SMT collects 36% more light than the 12" LX200GPS-SMT and 96% more than the 10" LX200 GPS-SMT, permitting the use of higher observing magnifications for greater resolution and celestial detail.

2) Meade 12" LX200 GPS-SMT Telescope

Fitted with a wealth of technological features previously unavailable to advanced amateurs, the new 12" LX200 GPS Telescope with UHTC enhances the high-quality resolution and resolving power available in previous LX200 models. And, because of its larger aperture, the 12" LX200 GPS collects 44% more light than the 10" LX200 GPS, permitting the use of higher observing magnifications for greater resolution and celestial detail.

3) Meade 10" LX200 GPS-SMT Telescope

Fitted with a wealth of technological features previously unavailable to advanced amateurs, the new 10" LX200 GPS-SMT Telescope with UHTC enhances the high-quality resolution and resolving power available in previous LX200 models. And, because of its larger aperture, the 10" LX200 GPS-SMT collects 64% more light than the 8" LX200 GPS-SMT, permitting the use of higher observing magnifications for greater resolution and celestial detail.

4) Meade 8" LX200 GPS-SMT Telescope

Fitted with a wealth of technological features previously unavailable to advanced amateurs, the new 8" LX200 GPS-SMT Telescope with UHTC enhances the high-quality resolution and resolving power available in previous LX200 models. The result is flawless operation and breathtaking imagery that takes amateur astronomy to another level.

5) Meade 8" LX90-LNT Telescope with UHTC

The Meade 8" LX90-LNT is the first full-capability, computer-controlled 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain ever offered in its price range. A die-cast aluminum, double-tine fork mount rigidly supports the optical tube in all sky orientations for photographic applications, while oversized worm gears – measuring nearly five inches in diameter – on both telescope axes permit smooth sidereal-rate tracking of celestial objects during long-exposure imaging.

6) Meade LXD75 SC-8" Telescope with UHTC

Meade's world-renowned, Schmidt-Cassegrain optics fully qualify this mid-aperture scope as a serious observation instrument. Designed to operate at an extremely low focal ratio (f/10), the 8" LXD75 Schmidt-Cassegrain displays very wide, well-corrected fields of view with the convenience and usability of Autostar control and advanced, equatorial mountings.

7) Meade LXD75 SN-10" Telescope with UHTC

Featuring the largest aperture and best resolving power of the LXD75 series, Meade's SN-10 scope allows observation of fine detail in the planets and their satellites. Designed to operate at an extremely low focal ratio (f/4), the 10" LXD75 Schmidt-Newtonian displays very wide, well-corrected fields of view with the convenience and usability of Autostar control and advanced, equatorial mountings.

8) Meade ETX-125PE Telescope with UHTC

Until now, the stargazer's two biggest challenges to enjoying the night sky have been aligning their telescope and finding objects. Meade's new ETX Premier Edition series eliminates these two challenges and makes astronomy as easy as pushing a button – right out of the box. Setting up your scope is a snap with the Automatic Alignment + SmartFinder™ system – just enter your zip code, and your scope will level itself, point to true North and set the time automatically.

9) Meade LXD75 SN-8" Telescope with UHTC

With a 500x maximum practical power rating, Meade's mid-level LXD75 Schmidt-Newtonian scope offers impressive views of the planets and solar system objects. Designed to operate at an extremely low focal ratio (f/4), the 8" LXD75 Schmidt-Newtonian displays very wide, well-corrected fields of view with the convenience and usability of Autostar control and advanced, equatorial mountings.

10) Meade ETX-125AT Telescope with UHTC & Autostar

The revolutionary Meade ETX-125AT goes anywhere at a moments notice and presents the finest optical images ever made available in ultraportable telescopes. Like the ETX-90AT, the ETX-125 provides an impressive optical tool for amateur and expert astronomers alike to observe continually changing celestial phenomena through effortless pushbutton electronic control. Yet the ETX-125AT collects twice the light of the ETX-90AT, permitting a much broader range of astronomical study.
