Meade ETX-80AT telescope is one of the most versatile computerized tools for celestial and terrestrial observation. This version of the ETX-80AT has everything you need including a backpack to go hiking or take on any trip. Its light weight and compact design make it an excellent scope for astrophotography. Its superior optics and abundant light-gathering deliver sharp planetary views and fine details of the craters on the moon. The ETX-80AT has the ability to automatically level itself. The user has to do the following: point the telescope north, set the time, location, and zips. Once this user friendly procedure has been performed, the telescope will align itself, and find the brightest star in the sky, and you are good to go.
The telescope is equipped with the AutoStar, which makes finding celestial objects extremely easy. It has an extensive library containing more than 1400 sky objects that eliminates the need to learn the sky map. Besides all these advanced standard features, the ETX-80AT telescope comes with a built-in barlow lens that flips into position when higher magnification is needed. Also included are the Red Dot viewfinder (SmartFinder), the high precision internal clock, the electronic level sensor, the magnetic north sensor, and two premium 4-element 1.25" Super Plossl eyepieces.
