The ETX90 is the latest in a long line of Meade Telescopes of the highest quality that have provided novice astronomers with quality, value, and performance for generations. Each model in that series has brought new enhancements and improvements, and this continuation of that legacy is a prime example of that continued quality and efficiency.
Starting your astronomy journey with the ETX 90 is an excellent choice. Take advantage of 90mm of aperture to enjoy close-up views of the solar system and celestial objects anytime, anywhere. Packing your ETX 90 Observer and tripod at a moment’s notice is a breeze with the carrying case and durable tripod bag. The ETX 90 Observer is a sophisticated, heavily automated and highly portable telescope setup that is ideal for a novice or anyone else on the move frequently who wants to engage in visual astronomy. The OTA is removable from the setup, and the setup as a whole includes exceptional features like AudioStar, GOTO technology, and large 30,000 object database. It’s a perfect scope to accompany you during camping, hiking, and outdoor activities! Exploring and night-sky stargazing is made fun, easy and educational. With the ETX 90, you’ll see planets, stars, galaxies and nebulae at the push of a button!
The Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design of the ETX90 naturally lends itself to pinpoint star images and extraordinary contrast, making it a great deep sky performer and ideal for detailed lunar and planetary observation at high magnifications. meanwhile, Meade's UHTC optical coatings grant maximum light transmission, ensuring the brightest images and the highest contrast. It has a flip mirror included to let light focus to the rear of the telescope (instead of the mirror reflecting the light 90 degrees to the eyepiece), allowing attachment of a camera on the back of the scope (adapters not included). The ETX90 Observer comes with a bubble Level/Compass to make sure your tripod and mount are level. Furthermore, the ETX90 includes a portable but extremely stable full size steel tripod, and comes with an equatorial tilt plate, allowing for polar alignment which is critical for long exposure astrophotography. It also includes a hard carry case for the mount/optical tube and accessories, and a tripod bag for the tripod.
