1-0 out of 5 stars Watch out for firmware!
If you are going to pay $99 for one of these things, make sure that the firmware on the one you are getting is the latest and greatest. I had one with an ETX-60AT that glitched during the setup and would not progress pass the DAYLIGHT SAVINGS? question. When I called Meade they pretty much told me that it was a "known problem" and that I was out of luck because the unit was out of warranty..

5-0 out of 5 stars Who wood have thought that there wood b sumthing fun+edu.?
easy to use and great for educational purposes June 14, 2000 4-0 out of 5 stars Not as difficult as it's made out to be
I first grew acquainted with Autostar about 6 months ago (albeit the 494 model) on the ETX-70 AT, and had some accuracy issues the first few times I used it.They were easily fixed, though, with a good drive training (on a power pole about a mile and a half away) and careful motor calibration.That was in May, and except for when the batteries are low, I haven't really had problems since.Read more
