Meade ETX-80AT-TC Go-To ComputerTelescope is the latest replacement for our all-time best seller telescope, the Meade ETX-70AT Telescope. With a new, larger aperture, the Meade TC Go-To Telescope features a built-in Barlow lens, and is a powerful companion for exploring the universe at an incredibly attractive price. The Meade GoTo 80mm Telescope may be the perfect instrument for the casual observer interested in viewing the Moon, planets, bright deep-space objects, and terrestrial landmarks. The Meade Computerized Telescope comes with the #494 Meade Autostar Computer Controller. The Meade Auto Star features an integrated, factory-calibrated time chip (TC) that permits the automatic location of over 1400 celestial objects. Just enter the object you wish to observe on to the Autostar display, and press GO TO - the Meade GoTo Telescope automatically trains itself on your target object. The Meade GoTo features fork mount with electric slow-motion controls, locks on both axes and 9-speed dual-axis motor drive system.

The Meade ETX80 Refractor Telescope come with Meade Field Tripod #882, as well as a selection of telescope accessories including two 1.25" eyepieces - 9.7mm (41x) and 26.0mm (15x), as well as a computer control panel featuring auxiliary input port and on/off LED, built-in timer and reminder alarm for use with astrophotography applications.

The Meade ETX-80AT-TC-BB Backpack Edition Telescope 0805-40-20 has all the same exceptional features of the Meade ETX 80, and includes a dew shield, a slightly lighter field tripod with bubble level indicator, and a Special Edition Meade Backpack for the telescope. The Meade Special Edition Backpack was designed specifically to fit the Meade ETX 80 Telescope along with the included accessories and a tripod. An adjustable loop strap with lock holds the tripod. Inside the Meade Back Pack are VELCRO brand closure loop straps that keep the telescope tube in place, and accessory compartments to storage all essential ETX 80 accessories. The Meade Backpack Telescope is a portable observatory right in your backpack.

Take a look at Meade ETX-80 Telescope Manual in the documents section above, for details on the scope. Also reference the Meade ETX 80 Backpack Edition Telescope Manual for detailed instructions on how to stow the telescope, accessories, and the tripod.
