The new ETX Observer, the ultimate portable computerized telescopes, bring new enhancements and improvements to the popular ETX telescopes.

Coming in either the 80mm achromat refractor or 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope design, these GoTo computerized telescopes feature a removable optical tube and the AudioStar handbox controller. The removable optical tube (1/4"-20 threaded) allows for customization. The AudioStar handbox controller gives you access to the ETX's 30,000 object database with a built-in speaker that plays educational content about celestial objects you view.

These scopes were designed for the astronomer on the move. Both models include a variety of accessories, including 9.7mm and 26mm Super Plössl eyepieces. The 80mm model comes with a backpack that fits the OTA and mount, while the 90mm model comes with a hard carry case and a tripod bag.

The ETX80 Observer comes with a number of features and accessories, including: Backpack for the mount/OTA; AudioStar handbox controller with over 30,000 objects and a built-in speaker; lightweight but sturdy tripod; internal flip function 2x Barlow lens to increase the magnification of the eyepiece in use; Flip mirror to let light focus to the rear of the telescope allowing attachment of a camera on the back of the scope (prime focus photography); dew shield to prevent dew buildup and block stray light; Multi-coated optics for higher contrast and brighter details; 45 degree roof prism for a more comfortable viewing position; bubble level/compass to make sure your tripod and mount are level; achromatic design to reduce optical aberrations.

The ETX90 Observer has a Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design for pinpoint star images and extraordinary contrast. The Ultra-High Transmission Coatings (UHTC) give maximum light transmission, ensuring the brightest images and the highest contrast. It has a flip mirror included to let light focus to the rear of the telescope, allowing attachment of a camera on the back of the scope (for prime focus photography, adapters not included). The ETX90 Observer comes with a bubble Level/Compass to make sure your tripod and mount are level. Includes a portable but extremely stable full size steel tripod, and comes with an equatorial tilt plate, allowing for polar alignment. Also includes a hard carry case for the mount/optical tube and accessories, and a tripod bag for the tripod.
