Meade ETX-80AT-TC Go-To ComputerTelescope is the latest replacement for our all-time best seller telescope, the Meade ETX-70AT Telescope. With a new, larger aperture, the Meade TC Go-To Telescope features a built-in Barlow lens, and is a powerful companion for exploring the universe at an incredibly attractive price. The Meade GoTo 80mm Telescope may be the perfect instrument for the casual observer interested in viewing the Moon, planets, bright deep-space objects, and terrestrial landmarks.
