Since it's introduction the Meade ETX series has been one of the most popular small telescopes among amateur astronomers, outreach volunteers, classrooms and serious astronomers looking for a grab and go option.  All the sizes available, the Meade ETX125 5" Maksutov Cassegrain telescope has been a clear favorite. The reasons are clear. The Meade ETX 125 is a portable, fully computerized telescope with a sturdy all-metal tripod, and crisp Maksutov Cassegrain optics. Fully capable of being used in both observing and photographic applications, the ETX 125 offers maximum versatility at an incredible value.

About Maksutov Cassegrain Optics

Traditional SC telescopes have a secondary mirror that is held in place with a bracket commonly known as a "spider".  This bracket and surrounding cell create a relatively large obstruction in front of the primary mirror.  The result is a decrease in light gathered which lowers contrast and brightness.  For larger telescopes, this design is an effective way to balance aperture and cost.  At 5", the ET125 can take advantage of perhaps the best optical design for a reflector telescope.  The Maksutov Cassegrain or Mak-Cass, uses a curved corrector plate with the secondary mirror coated directly to it.  There is no spider or cell to obstruct the light any more than the mirror surface needs and the curved corrector plate helps focus light with a higher accuracy than other designs.  Colors become truer, more light is gathered per aperture, and the contrast is thereby boosted making a Mak-Cass telescope an optimal choice for planetary and lunar observing or imaging.   

About Meade AudioStar

The Meade AudioStar features audio files and an internal speaker. This computerized celestial object locating system plugs into the telescope's handbox port allowing a quick telescope alignment.

Once aligned with the sky the AudioStar is ready to take you to any object in the over 30,000 object database. In addition to GOTO and tracking capability the AudioStar permits a wide array of fascinating and educational functions such as multiple Guided Tours, digital positional readouts, the ability to link with a PC using optionally available software and cord, and much more.
