Product Details

Until now, the stargazer's two biggest challenges to enjoying the night sky have been aligning their telescope and finding objects. Meade’s ETX-AT Edition eliminates these two challenges and makes astronomy as easy as pushing a button – right out of the box. Want to see a hard-to-find deep space galaxy? Simply push a button. The same goes for planets, stars, nebulae and more. Just pick an object you want to observe, press a button, and then AutoStar will automatically point your telescope and put it right in your eyepiece.

Don't know what you want to see this evening? Go to the “Tonight's Best” tour in your AutoStar. It automatically selects the best objects in the sky for that particular time and location (from its database of over 30,000 celestial objects). All you need is a clear night, a dark sky and a little curiosity. Whether you already know the sky by heart, or are just beginning your journey of discovery, your Meade ETX-AT will take you where you want to go. Astronomy has never been so fun and rewarding.

The Meade ETX-125 AT (f/15) Maksutov-Cassegrain w/UHTC offers optical quality that has made it a standard in the industry, Meade's best optical coatings, an advanced Meade 497 GOTO computer handbox and an easy to use red dot viewfinder along with a solid mount and tripod. If you are in looking for a high quality portable scope absolutely loaded with features and performance you need look no further. Includes instructional DVD.

The Meade ETX-125 AT telescope features an advanced Maksutov-Cassegrain design for pinpoint star images and extraordinary contrast, making it a great deep sky performer and ideal for detailed lunar and planetary observation as it easily soars to high magnifications. This 125mm (5.0") model has a focal length of 1900mm, f/15, with Meade's best Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC).

Electronics include the Meade #497 AutoStar keypad with over 30,000 object library, periodic error correction, and easy to use red dot viewfinder with adjustable brightness control. The Autostar may be linked to a PC using an optionally available software and cable connector set, allowing the telescope to be controlled via a laptop or other PC. The telescope is conveniently internally powered by 8 (user-supplied) AA batteries which will run it for approximately 20 hours under normal usage. An AC adapter is also available for separate purchase.

Standard equipment includes a Meade 884 field tripod, Meade Meade 26mm Series 4000 1.25" Super Plössl eyepiece (73X), and Meade AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition Software and Instructional DVD. The very stable tripod features chrome plated tubular steel legs and for the astrophotographer conveniently has a built in wedge which can be used for polar alignment of the telescope. The included software will help you locate objects in the night sky, print star maps, and learn more about the use and uses of your new telescope.

A telescope is only as good as its mount and this mechanically sophisticated model includes an extremely rigid dual aluminum fork substructure with high impact ABS shell. The similarly advanced optical tube design incorporates a unique flip mirror mechanism, allowing light to either go to the comfortable 90 degree observing position of the eyepiece or the built in camera attachment port at the rear of the tube. Optional adapters are available for many popular camera models.

Telescope weight including tripod is a mere 16 pounds and an aluminum carry case is available separately to enhance its outstanding portability. Meade ETX- world class performance in a very portable scope.

Product is covered by Meade one year limited factory warranty.
