Starting your astronomy journey with the Meade ETX 90EC is an
excellent choice. Take advantage of 3.5” of aperture to enjoy close-up views of
the solar system and celestial objects anytime, anywhere.

The Meade ETX 90EC fully equips the modern explorer with a
sophisticated, automated and portable telescope. Its dual-purpose design
includes a removable OTA and includes exceptional features like AudioStar, GOTO
technology, and a 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 fun, easy and educational. With the Meade ETX 90,
you’ll see planets, stars, galaxies and nebulae at the push of a button.

The ETX90EC has a Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design for
pinpoint star images and extraordinary contrast, making it a great deep sky
performer and ideal for detailed lunar and planetary observation at high
magnifications. The Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) give maximum light
transmission, ensuring the brightest images and the highest contrast. It has a
flip mirror 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 ETX90EC  comes with a Bubble Level/Compass to
make sure your tripod and mount are level.
