Meade ETX-80AT-TC Astro Telescope with AutoStar Backpack Version

New from Meade! Replacing the ETX-70 AT, the new ETX-80AT-TC with AutoStar features a larger, 80mm objective lens to let you see more of what's out there! Not only has the aperture increased, but the ETX-80's mount appears larger and more substantial that its predecessor's. That translates into steadier viewing and less image-dance. Plus, the new ETX-80 also includes a clock-chip for keeping precise time and date - there'll be no need ever again to call for the precise time when you're trying to set AutoStar. The mount also is supplied with a new bubble level/compass for fast orientation of the telescope to level and true north. Two new two Super Plossl eyepieces, 9.7mm and 26mm ship with the ETX-80AT-TC, as well. These give out-of-the-box magnifications as great as 41X. And to go with them, there's an internal, flip-in Barlow lens. This increases the power of the included eyepieces or any others you choose to use. All in all, the new ETX-80AT-TC is probably the best value available today in an easy-to-use refracting telescope! All of the major planets except Pluto are easily observable through the ETX-80AT. Study Saturn and its ring system, the primary cloud belts of Jupiter, as well as the four major Jovian satellites, the Moonlike phases of Mercury and Venus, prominent features on Mars, and view star-like images of the distant planets Uranus and Neptune. The Moon, too, stands out in stark, almost three- dimensional detail, prominently showing off its craters, mountain ranges, and fault lines. In our galaxy the telescope displays hundreds of nebulae, star clusters, double and multiple stars, and variable stars-plus dozens of external galaxies in all their variations of form and structure. Land Sky Observing The Meade ETX-80AT-TC also makes an excellent land-view instrument for the bird watcher, the naturalist, or for owners of a home with a view. To view images on land with correct orientation you will need the optional #933 Erect Image Prism. This re-orients the telescope's normal, mirror image to produce natural views of terrestrial objects. AutoStar Hand Controller ? the greatest happening in amateur astronomy yet. For all of its advanced imaging capabilities, portability, ease of use, and contemporary cosmetic design, Meade's ETX-80AT-TC telescopes are uniquely defined by the revolutionary Autostar hand controller. Included as standard equipment with the ETX-80AT-TC, the #494 Autostar controller permits automatic location of more than 1,400 celestial objects, including all of the objects located in the telescope's onboard database. Just enter the object you want to observe into the Autostar display, press GO TO, and watch as the telescope moves within seconds to place the object in the field of view. One observing session validates the prediction made by Sky Telescope Magazine that The ETX/Autostar concept will go down as the greatest happening in amateur astronomy yet. Objects stored in the #494 Autostar's database include the entire range of celestial phenomena and are designed to keep the active observer busy for many a starlit evening. The database listing has been specifically chosen as suitable for observing with the ETX-80AT-TC and provides an excellent introduction to the diversity of astronomical objects visible through the telescope. In addition to its object-locating capabilities Autostar permits pushbutton centering of objects within the telescopic field at any of nine selectable speeds. Once Autostar locates an object, it directs the telescope automatically to track the object across the sky, compensating fully and precisely for the effects of the Earth's axial rotati
