Meade ETX-LS Telescope
Meade ETX-LS Details
The Meade ETX-LS is a two model range of telescopes featuring Meade's Lightswitch Technology which aligns the telescope at the simple flick of a switch. The Astronomer Inside feature can then take the observer on a multi-media tour of the night sky.
The two models have differing optical design, the cheaper model ($1299) sports a Schmidt-Cassegrain design whilst it's more expensive brother ($1499) shows off Meade's Advanced Coma-Free optics. ACF provides distortion free images for the observer.
Both models also have Autostar III a hand-held controller for the telescope which has a database of over 100,000 celestial objects to choose from. Simply select one of these objects and press the 'GoTo' button and the Autostar controller will align the telescope to the object.
