Meade ETX 125 EC Catadioptric Computerized Telescope on Steel Tripod W/497 Contr:
Detailed description of the Meade ETX125 EC Telescope:
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.
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!
#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.
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.
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!
