To give you a guided tour of the universe, your telescope needs to know its bearings. Things like location, time, and date all affect where heavenly objects can be found at any given moment. Telescope Alignment is simply a way to synchronize your telescope with the night sky. Meade has patented the simplest, and most effective alignment procedure in the world. All Meade ETX PE Premier Edition AutoStar Telescopes feature Meade Auto Align alignment procedure. Meade Telescopes with AutoAlign are smart scopes that perform this simple procedure for you automatically.
Meade Telescope ETX90 PE also features Meade SmartFinder - the easiest way to center a star. Meade Smart Finder Red Dot Scope helps novices with one of the early frustrating parts of astronomy: centering objects in the finder scope. To the veteran, this is easy. But to a novice it can feel like looking for stars through a drinking straw. By contrast, Meade 's unique red dot finderscope 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 look through your telescope eyepiece and it will be there.
Meade Deluxe AutoStar Controller # 497 - the heart of Meade ETX PE Computer Guided Telescopes - finds things in the night sky for you. Meade AutoStar Computer Controller # 497 helps you quickly find, and GoTo over 30,000 objects in the night sky (classic Meade ETX Telescopes come with Meade Autostar #494 with 1,400 objects database) . View planets, stars, galaxies, nebulae, and comets... all at the push of a button. Meade AutoStar is pre-programmed with several guided tours, including the popular Tonight's Best. Let Meade AutoStar take you on a guided tour of the best objects for that particular night. Meade AutoStar grows with you. Meade AutoStar Update lets you connect to the internet to download new software versions (Meade Autostar #497 ONLY), special guided tours, and timely objects like satellites and comets right to your AutoStar controller. All for free. You can also learn to create and download personalized tours of your favorite objects. So your Meade AutoStar will get better and better with no added investment but your time. Meade Autostar Computer Controller also keeps objects in the eyepiece. With a manual telescope, the earth's rotation causes objects to move quickly out of your field of view. Not with Meade ETX PE AutoStar Telescopes. Meade Autostar tracks objects automatically, keeping them dead center in your eyepiece for viewing or astrophotography.
All Meade ETX and Meade ETX PE Telescopes come with Meade UHTC Coatings. Meade UHTC is a series of exotic optical coatings precisely tuned to optimize the visual, photographic and CCD imaging performance of Meade ETX Telescopes. Image brightness is increased by nearly 15% over standard Meade coatings. Objects such as stars, galaxies and nebulae as observed through your Meade ETX or Meade ETX-PE will be dramatically brighter. Even observations of the Moon and planets will benefit in increased image brightness from the full spectrum of light transmission.
All Meade ETX-PE Autostar UHTC Telescopes come with Meade 884 Field Tripod, Meade AutoStar Suite Astronomer Edition Software and Meade 26mm Series 4000 Super Plossl Eyepiece. With Meade ETX PE Telescopes are also included Instructional DVD, PC Interface Cable and 8x25 Right Angle Viewfinder.
