Since 1999, Meade's ETX Series Telescopes have provided astronomers of all levels quality, value, and performance. Each new model continues to bring enhancements and improvements, to maintain and improve smooth, exceptional performance. The newest released ETX continues that legacy with Meade’s ETX Observer Series.
The ETX Observer models come in an 80mm refractor, and 90mm & 125mm Maksutov-Cassegrain optical designs. These telescopes now feature AudioStar® - which gives easy access to a 30,000 object-database and includes a built-in speaker that plays educational content about the celestial objects you view! Each model is a computerized, GoTo mount with a dual-fork arm mount design and comes with the following accessories: (2) 1.25” Super Plössl eyepieces (9mm & 26mm) for high and low magnifications and a red-dot viewfinder to help easily locate objects in the night sky.
In addition, the 80mm and 90mm models feature a removable optical tube - which brings versatility and customization to the ETX. Continuing, the ETX80 fits entirely in the included backpack while the ETX90 comes with a hard carry case and a tripod bag for your entire setup. These provide added protection and portability for astronomers on the go.
Each ETX Observer features Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC™) that provide crisp, clear images. You will see brighter star clusters, fine detail in nebulae, and surface features on planets.
Whether you are hiking, camping, or in the backyard, the ETX Observer models are made for observing anytime, anywhere. With GoTo and tracking capabilities, these are the ultimate portable computerized telescopes.
