Meade. ETX Astro Telscope. 90mm (3-1/2") Maksutov Cassegrain. Manual. 1996. PDF. 600 DPI.
The original ETX-90 (first produced in 1996) was called the ETX Astro Telescope. Other sizes came later, including the 90mm EC model (1999), which added electronic slewing controls on both axes and came with a standard 4-speed handcontroller; the AutoStar and a tripod were additional cost options.
Now referred to as the "RA" or "classic" model, the ETX Astro had a clockwork mechanism to track movement of the earth with an equatorial wedge, but no computer control. The tabletop model came with small tripod legs that screwed into the base. A standard #883 tripod was available as an optional accessory.
This PDF is a high quality, 600 DPI, scan of each page of the original manual for the "RA" model and includes information on using it on a tripod and for astrophotography. 600 DPI insures that you can print out any or all of the pages in the highest quality, even larger than the original.
