Meade ETX-AT Series
The Meade ETX-AT is an affordable entry-level telescope, yet whilst low on price still includes the features you expect from a quality Meade telescope.
Before we get into the features of the ETX-AT series, let's take a look at the optics. The series consists of two models, the ETX-90AT, a 3.5 inch aperture unit and it's bigger brother, the ETX-125AT, a 5 inch version. Each sports a Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design and have the usual Ultra High Transmission Coasting to increase the performance of the telescope. The ETX-90AT has a focal length of 1250mm and ratio f/13.8 whilst the ETX-125AT specs are 1900mm and f/15 respectively.
The features on the Meade ETX-AT series include the Easy Align feature, as well as Meade's AutoStar controller. The AutoStar allows the user to easily view over 30,000 objects at the push of a button. Just let the AutoStar know the date and time and your location and it can take you on one of several guided tours of the cosmos!
The ETX-AT telescopes also come with a heavy duty aluminum carry case for easy transporting of your equipment. With your telescope you also receive a Meade 884 tripod with chrome plated tubular steel legs, a 26mm Series 4000 1.25" Super Pl�ssl eyepiece (73X) and the AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition Software and DVD.
As an optional extra, you can connect your ETX-AT to a laptop or desktop computer using the appropriate software and cabling.
The telescope is powered via 8 AA batteries which will normally provide 20 hours of usage.
