Meade’s new, larger 90mm diameter ETX delivers more light-gathering for increased image brightness and greater detail. Moon craters by the hundreds, cloud belts on Jupiter, and Saturn’s rings are just the beginning of what can be seen with this telescope.
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 eliminates these two challenges and makes astronomy as easy as pushing a button – right out of the box. Want to see a hard-to-find deep space galaxy? Simply push a button. The same goes for planets, stars, nebulae and more. Just pick an object you want to observe, press a button, and then AutoStar® will automatically point your telescope and put it right in your eyepiece.
Don't know what you want to see this evening? Go to the “Tonight's Best™” tour in your AutoStar. It automatically selects the best objects in the sky for that particular time and location (from its database of over 30,000 celestial objects). All you need is a clear night, a dark sky and a little curiosity. Whether you already know the sky by heart, or are just beginning your journey of discovery, your Meade ETX-Premier Edition will take you where you want to go. Astronomy has never been so fun and rewarding.
Automatic Alignment + SmartFinder™
You just enter your location or zip code. After your ETX completes its patented Level North automatic alignment procedure it will point to the first alignment star. Use the new wide-field SmartFinder to center the red dot over the alignment stars for ultra-precise pointing accuracy. It’s that easy.
More Power Than You’ll Ever Need. Any astronomer will tell you that light gathering-not power-is what matters. A small, crisp image is better than a large hazy one. Meade’s 1.25" diameter Super Plössl eyepieces provide wider fields of view, allowing you to see more of the sky at greater magnifications.
Auto Star Suite™ Astronomer Edition Software on DVD + Instructional Video Auto Star Suite Astronomer Edition software will help you learn the night sky. It displays more than 30,000 celestial objects including planets, stars, galaxies and nebulas. You can print out star charts and even plan your observing sessions. It operates on any Windows® based PC
Meade UHTC™ is a series of exotic optical coatings precisely tuned to optimize the visual, photographic and CCD imaging performance of your ETX telescope. Image brightness is increased by nearly 15% over standard Meade coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies and nebulae as observed through your ETX will be dramatically brighter. Even observations of the Moon and planets will benefit in increased image brightness from the full spectrum of light transmission.
