Meade ETX-125 Observer Series Kit - Excellent Condition!
Price includes FedEx ground shipping (48 states)
Your Meade ETX will be ready to observe on the first night without anything other than some AA batteries to power it up! (we included an ac adapter) You will receive these important accessories in the box:
- Red-Dot Finder: An easy-to-use finder that will aid you in pointing your telescope quickly and accurately
- Two Eyepieces: A 9.7mm and a 26mm Super Plossl Eyepieces will give you lower and higher magnifications. Add more eyepieces (sold separately) as you grow in the hobby.
- Built-In Flip Mirror: This nifty accessory allows you to switch between terrestrial and astronomical viewing with a flip. If you will be doing a lot of terrestrial viewing, you may want to consider purchasing the Meade 45-Degree Erect Image Diagonal to allow for correct image orientation.
- Field Tripod: This sturdy tripod has steel legs, a spreader bar for added stability, and an adjustable EQ tilt plate. This tilt plate turns your “alt-azimuth” tripod into a simple equatorial mount, which is required when taking astrophotos.
- Autostar controller (non talking version)
