Light Switch Technology
EASY, Automatic Self -Alignment
Meade’s patented automatic self-alignment system — just one touch and it does all of the work for you. No stars to center.
No bearings to take. No time or location to enter. Just flip the switch, and the Integrated Sensor Module in combination with the ECLIPS™(Electronically Controlled Locate Identify Position System) CCD imager delivers all the information necessary to automatically align your ETX-LS for fast, accurate, hassle-free viewing. All at the flip of a switch.

MEADE’S ASTRONOMER INSIDE
Take a multi-media guided tour of the universe, or select your favorite object and the ETX-LS’
Astronomer Inside gives you fun and informative audio descriptions of over 500 objects while you view them in the eyepiece or experience the whole dazzling multi-media presentation on an attached video monitor complete with audio, video, still images and text.

ACF (Advanced Coma -Free) Optics SHARP, CLEAR, BRLLIANT
Meade’s proprietary, Advanced Coma-Free optics will
wow you at first sight. Distortion-free clarity. Sharpas-
a-tack resolution. ACF’s state-of-the-art optics are so good, you’ll see more objects than you’ve ever thought possible. Just compare ACF to Ritchey-Chrétien systems selling for $10,000 or more, and ACF’s quality will absolutely astound you.

AutoStar III® TOTAL CONTROL
The easy-to-use hand-held controller lets you select
from a huge object database, with over 100,000
celestial objects. Just select an object and push
the “GoTo” button and the telescope will automatically put your object in the eyepiece. The AutoStar III also gives you complete control of the Astronomer Inside multimedia features only available from Meade.

OVERSIZED PRIMARY MIRROR
Only Meade manufactures their primary mirrors in diameters larger than their listed aperture (e.g. the diameter of the 8" LX90’s primary mirror is actually 8.25").This additional 1/4" yields a wider, fully illuminated field-of-view, and allows you to see the light other telescopes leave behind.
