About the Meade ETX-80AT-TC

The Meade ETX-80AT-TC 400mm "Go To" Refractor Telescope Kit has fully-automated computerized "Go To" control that simply performs a simple calibration procedure and then you can merely tell the Autostar controller what you'd like to see. The mount for the ETX-80AT-TC has been beefed up from its ETX-70 predecessor, permitting steadier viewing particularly at higher magnifications. The "TC" refers to internal clock chip to maintain precise time internally-which is important for aligning the scope.

Meade's #494 AutoStar computer controllers automatically guides your telescope to over 1400 objects-planets, stars, galaxies and nebulas all arrive shortly after the simple push of a button.

The "Tonight's best" feature automatically takes you on a guided tour of the best planets, stars, nebulas and other objects out that particular night. Those thirsty for more information can learn distances, temperatures, masses and historical information about the object of interest from the LCD display.
