Check my listings if you need lenses for the telescope.) The ETX-105 EC telescope is an advanced optical instrument. Thanks to electronic sensors for levelling and determining magnetic north, the process of getting your scope ready to hunt for celestial objects in shortened dramatically. You merely enter your location(in longitude & latitude) or your USA zip code and the machine does the rest, pointing to the first alignment star which you'll then further hone in on with the wide field SmartFinder finderscope. Use the electronic controller at any of four dual-axis speeds: 8x sidereal for image centering in the main telescope at high power, 32x for image centering at lower powers or for pushbutton object-tracking in the altazimuth mode, slow mode for image centering in the viewfinder or for terrestrial tracking of nature and sightseeing, or medium speed for fast slewing across the sky. The observer can instantly select any of these speeds simply by depressing the "speed" button on the controller.
