Meade ETX-125PE Premiere Edition 5.0"/125mm Catadioptric Telescope Kit (Astro)
Key Features
  • 1900mm f/15.0 Maksutov-Cassegrain
  • Motorized Altazimuth Mount
  • "GO-TO" Capacity
The ETX-125 Premiere Edition makes your evening of stargazing spent more at the eyepiece than anywhere else. Thanks to electronic sensors for levelling and determining magnetic north, the process of getting your scope ready to hunt for celestial objects is shortened dramatically. You merely enter your location (in longitude & latitude) or your USA zip code and the machine does the rest, pointing to the first alignment star which you'll then further hone in on with the wide field SmartFinder finderscope.

Use the electronic controller at any of four dual-axis speeds: 8x sidereal for image centering in the main telescope at high power, 32x for image centering at lower powers or for pushbutton object-tracking in the altazimuth mode, slow mode for image centering in the viewfinder or for terrestrial tracking of nature and sightseeing, or medium speed for fast slewing across the sky. The observer can instantly select any of these speeds simply by depressing the "speed" button on the controller.

UHTC Ultra High Transmission Coatings are an important feature to optimize the performance of your Meade telescope. Technologies developed at the Meade Irvine coatings facility have optimized the visual and photographic performance of Meade telescopes. The UHTC coatings, employed upon all optical surfaces, result in a 20% decrease in light loss and a dramatic enhancement in detail of deep space objects.
