Meade StarLock - Full-Time Automatic Guiding StarLock is the heart of the Meade LX800 Mount. Its the revolutionary new technology that makes target acquisition on your imaging sensor and accurate guiding during exposures completely automatic. With Meade's exclusive LightSwitch technology at its core StarLock uses a 80mm f/5 optic and a super wide angle lens in a two camera system that automatically finds your target in high-precision immediately captures a field star as dim as 11th magnitude and then guides to an incredible accuracy of one arcsecond. StarLock achieves this amazing accuracy because unlike add-on guiders StarLock is integrated into the telescope control system and communicates directly with the motor controllers in real time with a maximum precision of 0.01 arcseconds. There's no need for a separate guider or computer and the StarLock requires no calibration no use
