MEADE ETX 90PE Premium Telescope
The Meade ETX-90 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 90mm (3.5″) model has a focal length of 1250mm (f/13.8) with Meade’s best Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC). Electronics include the Meade AutoStar keypad with over 30,000 object library and which can be linked to a PC using an optionally available software and cable.
The Meade ETX90 PE Premium Telescope has UHTC optics and over 30,000 objects in its database, a complete package – telescope, tripod (with carry bag), autostar handset, 26mm eyepiece, software and manual. Until now, the stargazer’s two biggest challenges to enjoying the night sky have been aligning their telescope and finding objects. Meade’s new ETX Premier 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.
Maksutov optical system
Serious astronomers for years have flocked to the Meade ETX for its observatory-quality Maksutov-Cassegrain optical system. Its diffraction-limited optics are so crisp in contrast, brightness and image resolution that they consistently out-perform telescopes of larger aperture. All ETX telescopes features BK-7 glass and oversized Pyrex primary mirrors.
Meade UHTC is a series of exotic optical coatings precisely tuned to optimize the optical performance of your ETX telescope. Image brightness is increased by nearly 15% over standard coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies and nebulae as observed through your ETX will be dramatically brighter. Even observations of the Moon and planets will benefit in increased image brightness from the full spectrum of light transmission.
Automatic Alignment + SmartFinder
Meade’s new ETX-Premier Edition automatically levels your telescope, points it to North and sets the time. You just enter your location or zip code. After your ETX completes its patented Level North automatic alignment procedure it will point to the first alignment star. Use the new wide-field SmartFinder to center the red dot over the alignment stars for ultra-precise pointing accuracy. It’s that easy.
