The LX90GPS also features Meade's AutoAlign facility allowing you to fine tune your telescope with a couple of starts and from there on the LX90GPS knows where to point to show you what you want to see.

The telescope moves across the night sky at a speed of 7 degrees a second, faster than most other telescopes.

It comes with Meade's AutoStar software, a night sky catalogue of over 19 million objects.
