The Meade ETX-105EC is a big step up in performance over the ETX-90 allowing you to see and resolve twice as many stars as the ETX-90 but is still extremely portable. It can even be easily packed in carry-on luggage to take it to far away destinations. This Meade ETX-105EC high resolution long focal length Maksutov type telescope has not been used except to check it out and is basically brand new. It is great for astronomy but also is a terrific spotting scope and can be used for photography as a 1470mm extreme telephoto lens. The aperture is 105mm (4.133") and has a focal length of 1470mm (f/14). This package includes the Autostar computer GoTo controller (finds and tracks astronomical objects), the standard electronic hand controller for land use or equatorial mount mode, a 26mm Meade Super Plossl eyepiece, a 10mm Plossl eyepiece, a full aperture Kendrick Solar filter for viewing the sun (must remove or block off the finder scope when viewing the sun), a right angle finder scope, the Meade ETX105 custom hard case, the Meade deluxe ETX tripod for either altazimuth use or fully adjustable equatorial mount, the Meade Dew Shield (not an after market dew shield), and a vibration dampening flexible focus knob. Some of the photos show the tripod set in the altazimuth mode while others sow the tripod set in the equatorial mode for 40 degrees of latitude (Columbus Ohio).The telescope has the Meade high transmission enhanced coatings (EC). Of all the ETX line the 105EC has the best ratio of the primary mirror to the secondary mirror size which along with the enhanced (EC) coatings gives you ultra high resolution viewing and photography. The GoTo Autostar controller allows the telescope to find and track astronomical objects. The ETX-105EC scope is also the ideal travel scope. I have misplaced the instructions but they can be easily downloaded from the Meade website. The telescope uses 8 AA batteries (not included) and optional AC or DC cord is available for it. Here is your opportunity to get a great very high quality telescope at a low price. This would also be great for birding or wildlife and far outperforms other scopes that are more expensive. I do not respond to scam emails like "is it still available."
