For high-resolution imaging of terrestrial subjects, Meade ETX 90 Spotting Scopes
are two of
the finest spotting scopes
ever developed. ETX90 Meade Spotting Scopes
feature astronomical-quality optics that provide incredible detail with absolutely no color aberration. The light-gathering ability of big 90mm
objective lenses produce exceptionally crisp images, even in low light conditions.
Explore the subtleties of a bird's feather structure at 50 yards, read license plates more than half a mile in the distance, observe people walking on a street two miles in the distance, or use Meade ETX Spotting Scopes 90mm / 3.5" Spotter
for casual astronomical observations of the Moon, planets, and deep-space. The possibilities are as limitless as your own imagination.
Meade ETX-90 Maksutov-Cassegrain Spotting Scopes
include the exact same astronomical-quality, diffraction-limited optical tube assemblies as their respective Astro Telescope versions - Meade ETX Telescopes
. As a result these systems far outperform other terrestrial telescopes
not manufactured to within such precise optical tolerances. Meade ETX Spotting Scopes
do not, however, include the Astro Telescopes ' fork mountings or internal motor drives, features specifically designed for extensive astronomical applications.
Flip-mirror systems on Meade 90mm ETX Spotting Scopes permit quick adaptation from visual observing at 90°, to fully-image-erect viewing at 45°, to through-the-telescope 35mm photography with the optional Meade #64 T-Adapter 07363. Armed with their extremely long focal lengths (1250mm), and yet mounted in relatively short, portable tube assemblies, ETX90 Meade Spotting Scopes reveal distant photographic detail far beyond the capabilities of standard focal length lenses and without the physical inconvenience of typical long lenses
Meade ETX-90 Spotting Scopes are ideal terrestrial instruments in virtually any observing environment; the majority of first-time users are startled by the level of visible detail and resolution. In situations where the subject is at a greater distance from the observer, or where lighting conditions are less than perfect, Meade ETX 125 Spotting Scopes, with twice the light-collecting lens area of Meade ETX-90 Spotters, provides an excellent alternative.
Meade Spotting Scopes ETX90 come with a 45° Erecting Prism for fully correctly-oriented terrestrial images, and three Meade Super Ploss Eyepieces: SP 26mm eyepiece yielding 48X, SP 15mm eyepiece yielding 83X and SP 9.7mm eyepiece yielding 129X. Tripod is not included.
There two models of Meade ETX 90 Spotting Scopes available:
Meade UHTC Ultra High Transmission Coatings
- 35140001SP: Meade ETX-90 Spotting Scope w/ Standard Coating
- 35140002SP: Meade ETX 90 Spotting Scope w/ UHTC
are an important feature to optimize the performance of your Meade Spotting Scope
. Technologies developed at the Meade Irvine coatings facility have optimized the visual and photographic performance of Meade Telescopes
. Meade UHTC Coatings
, upon all 4 optical surfaces, result in a 20% decrease in light loss and a dramatic enhancement in detail, particularly of tiny facets and deep space objects.
