TURN IT ON AND IT KNOWS THE NIGHT SKY. ALIGNMENT DOESN'T GET ANY EASIER THAN THAT.
Meade introduces Digital Series telescopes with Auto-align LNT (Level North Technology) Module with SmartFinder. The little black box that makes alignment faster and easy.
Just enter your point of departure to embark on a tour of the universe.
Meade introduces what everyone's been waiting for: automatic alignment. There's no time and date to enter. No scrolling through a long list of locations. No plodding from star to star. Just give AutoStar your Zip Code and Auto-align automatically aligns your telescope and finds two finetuning stars for you. Center them and you're ready to tour the universe
Two stars are easier than thre
Conventional three-star alignment requires you to first enter your precise time, date and location and then choose, move to, and center, three bright objects in the night sky. This means you have to guess at random which objects are bright enough (only a limited number of objects will work, and in a dark sky everything may look bright to you).You must decide which objects are far enough apart and geometrically diverse enough to work. If one of your objects is too faint, or too close to another star, or in line with your other two objects, your alignment may fail. With Auto-align you simply: A) Enter your zip code. B) Center a star your scope finds for you. C) Repeat. It's that easy.
SmartFinder. The easiest way to center a star.
Another Meade exclusive, SmartFinder, helps novices with one of the early frustrating parts of astronomy: Centering objects in the finder scope. To the veteran, this is easy. But for a novice it can feel like looking for stars through a drinking straw. By contrast, Meade's unique red dot finder lets you look at a wide field of the sky with both eyes.open.You simply center the red dot on the object you want to see. Then move to your telescope's eyepiece for a closer look.
More innovation dollar for dol
Because Meade spends more on research and development than any other telescope manufacturer, innovation like Auto-align are always coming down-market from high-end telescopes to every product in our line. Auto-align gives Meade DS telescopes the same precision, ease-of-use, and accuracy of scopes costing hundreds and even thousands of dollar more. It's the fastest, easiest way to alignment. No one else has it. No other telescope in the price range can touch it.
