Product Description

Throughout the years, the Meade ETX Series telescopes have given beginner astronomers quality, value and performance, with each new model bringing enhancements and improvements. The ETX 90 Observer proceeds with this legacy.

Beginning your astronomy venture with the ETX 90 is a remarkable and smart decision. Utilize the 90mm of aperture to appreciate close-up views of the solar system and celestial objects whenever and wherever. Packing your ETX 90 Observer and tripod immediately is a breeze with the carrying case and durable tripod bag.

The ETX 90 Observer completely equips the modern explorer with a high end, automatic and versatile telescope. Its dual-purpose design includes a removable optical tube and includes remarkable features like AudioStar, 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 ETX 90, you’ll see planets, stars, galaxies and nebulae at the push of a button. The legacy of the ETX Series continues.

The ETX90 Observer has a Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design for pinpoint star images and striking contrast, making it an incredible deep sky scouter and perfect for detailed lunar and planetary observation at high magnification. The Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) give maximum light transmission, guaranteeing the brightest pictures and the most enhanced 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 ETX90 Observer comes with a bubble Level/Compass to make sure your tripod and mount are level.

Includes a portable yet stable full size steel tripod, and comes with an equatorial tilt plate, allowing for polar alignment; crucial for astro-imaging. Additionally included is a hard carry case for the mount/optical tube and accessories, and a tripod bag for the tripod.
