Editorial Review

The Meade ETX90EC is a compact telescope with excellent optics, packaged with a sturdy tripod and the remarkable Autostar computer control. Even though I own several telescopes and belong to an Astronomy club, the first night I took out the ETX, it showed me objects I'd never seen before. The ETX90EC is the computerized version of an affordable Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope first introduced by Meade in 1996. Every reviewer since then has commented on the excellent optics. How excellent? When I presented a session on optical testing at my local Astronomy club, I brought my ETX90 so that everyone could see what a "textbook" star test actually looks like. Read more

Features

  • Includes Autostar controller and deluxe field tripod
  • Cordless motor drive for fully automatic tracking
  • Equatorial fork mount, flip-mirror system
  • Maksutov meniscus corrector lens of Grade-A BK7 optical glass
  • Includes a Meade Series 4000 Super Plossl 26 millimeter eyepiece for 48 times magnification

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars!
Okay, I know nothing about telescopes. But my husband and I bought this last summer because he thought it'd be fun to star gaze. When we did, it was truly one of the most wonderful experience ever! It allows you to observe celestial objects in brilliant resolution. It wasn't complicated and simple to use. But you do have to read the manual.
4-0 out of 5 stars Meade Does It Right
The Meade ETX90EC lives up to its billing.It's a high-quality piece of gear that exudes craft and workmanship.The bundled package w/Autostar and Tripod gives you most of what you need.If you have any intent of doing terrestrial viewing, you should consider the 45 degree erecting prism.Also, the package does not come with any power adapters.If you plan to be out for a long evening of star gazing, you will probably want the adapter that lets you plug into a cigarette lighter.I wish Amazon had the UHTC version available, but no luck.Finally, I haven't been able to find the correct T-mount adapter for this scope on Amazon.I do want to use it for photography eventually.The main thing I would say is that this is not a toy, but it is ideal for beginners to intermediate enthusiasts.I've had more fun in just a couple sessions than I've ever had before.

4-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in Meade
This was my husband's big present for Christmas, something he has always wanted.While unwrapping and unpacking, he heard a rattle in the spotting scope.Upon investigation, he fished out a broken set screw and discovered that it had sheared off the outside of the spotting scope.Another screw was badly damaged.The eyepiece covers had all been left off when shipping.Also, all the settings were loose and had to be reset.Meade does not have an 800 number and you are put on hold interminably when you try to contact them.All in all, he likes the scope BUT was very disappointed in the quality of the manufacturer and lack of customer service.What a disappointment for Christams day! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Telescope
I think that this telescope works really good.The Autostar System finds objects perfectly.I usually use Autostar more in the day because when it's bright, it's hard to find objects in the sky.I have seen Saturn, and Jupiter so far.I got this telescope three days ago, and I love it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Beginners
Great for beginners.4-0 out of 5 stars Amature or pro? Doesn't matter with this telescope
This telescope is one of the best I've ever looked into. Even trying out a beatup floor model at the local Discovery Channel Store, it was a dream. It is a great starter for amatures, but still delivers power and great features for the more experienced. The DS-60EC is a nice one too, but it is a bit bulky. The ETX-60AT is a lot smaller, lighter, and easier to move around. Trust me, if you get this one, you won't regret it. ... Read more
