Meade Digital Series Telescope with Meade Autostar Computer Controller, LNT, SmartFinder is a great beginner telescope. Meade Level-North Technology (LNT) and Auto Align solves the amateur's two biggest challenges: aligning the telescope to the sky, and locating objects in the heavens. Meade Auto-Align gives Meade DS Telescopes the same precision, ease-of-use, and accuracy of telescopes costing hundreds and even thousands of dollar more. It's the fastest, easiest way to alignment.

Meade Digital Series Telescopes DS-2080AT-LNT and Meade DS-2130ATS-LNT Telescope 20133 feature LNT Module with SmartFinder:

Just enter your point of departure to embark on a tour of the universe.

Meade introduces what everyone's been waiting for: Automatic Alignment. There's no time and date to enter. No scrolling through a long list of locations. No plodding from star to star. Just give Meade AutoStar your Zip Code and Auto Align automatically aligns your Meade Telescope and finds two finetuning stars for you. Center them and you're ready to tour the universe.Meade Autostar #494

Two stars are easier than three.

Conventional three star alignment requires you to first enter your precise time, date and location and then choose, move to, and center, three bright objects in the night sky. This means you have to guess at random which objects are bright enough (only a limited number of objects will work, and in a dark sky everything may look bright to you. You must decide which objects are far enough apart and geometrically diverse enough to work. If one of your objects is too faint, or too close to another star, or in line with your other two objects, your alignment may fail. With Meade Auto Align you simply:

  • A) Enter your zip code.
  • B) Center a star your scope finds for you.
  • C) Repeat. It's that easy.

Meade SmartFinder - the easiest way to center a star.

Meade Smart Finder helps novices with one of the early frustrating parts of astronomy: Centering objects in the finder scope. To the veteran, this is easy. But for a novice it can feel like looking for stars through a drinking straw. By contrast, an unique Meade Red Dot Finder lets you look at a wide field of the sky with both eyes open. You simply center the red dot on the object you want to see. Then move to your telescope 's eyepiece for a closer look.
