Meade ETX-LS 6 in Advanced Coma

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 21, 2010
The optics on this scope are excellent. The setup was very easy, It is a little slow in the alignment process, but seems to be alot better with the new firmware update
Pros: extremly easy set up
Cons: some minor aligment issues...
Would recommend: Yes

ETX-LS 6 is a great tool

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on January 9, 2010
Right out of the box and ready to go (except for an immediate need to load updated firmware). The software on your laptop is easy to use and easy to update software. Since the update, the telescope works great! My 6 year old son and I are buiding a great pattern of learning that will last for years to come with this great telescope.
Pros: easy to use and built in information
Cons: menu navigation is a bit complex...
Would recommend: Yes

Missed the Mark

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WI Written on November 17, 2009
The GPS feature only works in very wide open areas, and the software does not allow you to put in exact coordinates (only City/State) when the internal GPS fails to note where the 'scope is. Without exacting coordinates and other issues finding North/level, the GOTO system fails to function. The view thru the scope is fantastic, but that does not make up for the high price for the poorly funtioning GOTO/Lightswitch features. I patiently await Meade's online software upgrades to see if things will impove, but I currently own a very expensive manual scope. Also, the voice over telling you specifics about what you are viewing becomes tiring and I have turned it off...just one more expensive feature that fails to impress.
Pros: Beautiful Optics
Cons: Software was not ready for release...
Would recommend: No
