Detailed description of the Meade ETX125 EC Telescope:

Meade's ETX125 mm (5-Inch) aperture Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope is the latest in a long line of Meade Telescopes of the highest quality that have provided novice astronomers with quality, value, and performance for generations. Each model in that series has brought new enhancements and improvements, and this continuation of that legacy is a prime example of that continued quality and efficiency.

Starting your astronomy journey with the ETX125 is an excellent choice. Take advantage of the 125 mm (5-inches) of aperture to enjoy close-up views of the solar system and celestial objects anytime, anywhere. Packing your ETX125 Observer and tripod at a moment's notice is a breeze with the carrying case and durable tripod bag. The ETX125 Observer is a sophisticated, heavily automated and highly portable telescope setup that is ideal for a novice or anyone else on the move frequently who wants to engage in visual astronomy. The OTA is removable from the setup, and the setup as a whole includes exceptional features like AutoStar, GoTo technology, and large 30,000 object database. It's a perfect scope to accompany you during camping, hiking, and outdoor activities! Exploring and night-sky stargazing is made fun, easy and educational. With the ETX125, you'll see planets, stars, galaxies, and nebulae, like you have never seen before, at the push of a button!

Autostar #497 Controller:One of the most important advances in telescope control in the past 25 years, the Meade #497 Autostar Computer Controller turns the ETX into an automatic celestial object locating system. Just plug the Autostar into the telescope's HBX port in place of the standard-equipment Electronic Controller, do a quick (less than one minute!) telescope alignment, and you're ready to observe any object in the Autostar's 30,000-object database.

Automatic GO TO capability to any astronomical object of known Right Ascension and Declination. In the (uncommon) event that an object is not in Autostar's database, enter the object's RA and Dec. from a star catalog or monthly magazine, press GO TO and the telescope automatically slews to the object, placing it in the field of view. This type of object-location is particularly useful in the case of aperiodic phenomena, such as most comets.

The Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design of the ETX125 naturally lends itself to pinpoint star images and extraordinary contrast, making it a great deep sky performer and ideal for detailed lunar and planetary observation at high magnifications. meanwhile, Meade's optical coatings grant maximum light transmission, ensuring the brightest images and the highest contrast. It has a flip mirror included to let light focus to the rear of the telescope (instead of the mirror reflecting the light 90-degrees to the eyepiece), allowing attachment of a camera on the back of the scope (adapters not included). The ETX125 includes a portable but extremely stable full-size Stainless Steel tripod, and comes with an equatorial tilt plate, allowing for polar alignment which is critical for long exposure astrophotography. It also includes a soft carry case for the optical tube and accessories.

This Meade ETX125 EC is used, but very few times, and never abused. It's as close to mint as you can get for a used telescope. There's not a scratch on the Telescope or tripod, The optics are perfect, and the electronics work without a flaw!
