Jason Ware with Meade LX850LX850 Astrophotography by Jason Ware — Jason Ware has been photographing the Night Sky since 1989; exclusively using Meade Instruments telescopes. Over the years he has continually refined his techniques and remained at the cutting edge of the art and science of astro-imaging.

The remarkable images shown on this page were captured through Meade’s revolutionary LX850 with StarLock, using either the 12” or a 14” f/8 Advanced Coma-Free (ACF) Optical Tube Assembly. Each of these images showcases the LX850’s capability as the ideal, fully integrated, full time autoguiding imaging system.
