More Details and Specifications

Meade's patented automatic self alignment system aligns with just one touch of the power switch. Just flip the switch and walk away. It aligns itself. It is that simple.
Includes genuine Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain optics with Ultra High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) the ETX-LS gives you the sharpest, brightest optical system for its size available at any price.

The included AutoStar III GOTO keypad computer has an over 100,000 object library and guided tour functions. Includes Meade ECLIPS color CCD camera (640x480 resolution) which lets you capture images of your favorite celestial wonders and display them in real time on an external (user supplied) monitor or store them on a (user supplied) SD card so you can do CCD imaging your very first night out.

The included “Astronomer Inside” feature delivers over four hours of fun and informational audio presentations which can be heard over the built in speaker, and 30 minutes of video presentations and animations plus hundreds of still images which can be watched over an external (user supplied) TV or monitor.

Eight (user supplied) D cell batteries will run the telescope for 3-5 hours, with a Meade Universal A/C power supply available separately for longer observing sessions.
