Sadly I haven't being so lucky with my EXT125, with one I bought 15 days ago. The audiostar is very helpful and easy to use, easy alignment, guided etc but every time that I set up my telescope in a clear sky ready to see the moon the only thing that I got are blurred image, I try to use both eyepiece or turning the focus knob, move the arrow up, down, right or left just for any extra adjustment but it always give me the same blurred, bright unfocused image. Any advised I will appreciated. (Posted on 10/7/2017)

I received a new ETX125 yesterday and had uncommonly clear skies. I didn't have time to train the drives, but even so the alignment went well and objects were always well within the FOV of a 20 mm eyepiece. The optics seem excellent with a perfect star test. Lunar views through a 6mm Delos were stunning.

There is some vibrations when focusing at higher magnification, but it dampens quickly. I own several Meade telescopes as well as products from other manufacturers. I'm a big fan of the Meade Audiostar controller; it's easier to use, the menu structure is more logical and the display is more legible. If Meade made an EQ5/EQ6 class mount with the Audiostar controller I'd sell off my other EQ mounts and purchase one in a heartbeat. (Posted on 6/29/2017)

Very portable! Great optics and clarity in a "small" scope. Can use on a table / bench or with the Meade Tripod system, in either Alt-Azimuth or Declination modes. Very happy with the images and the go to features. (Posted on 4/26/2017)
