With its Maksutov-Cassegrain design, the Meade ETX-125 Observer telescope allows for observations that bring fantastic views of a vast range of objects, such as craters on the Moon, the planets, double stars, globular clusters, galaxies and nebulae.
The 127-millimetre (five-inch) aperture and 1,900-millimetre (75-inch) focal length provide a focal ratio of f/15, which is perfect for high-power astrophotography. With its full-sized steel tripod, an equatorial tilt plate and a database of over 30,000 celestial objects, the ETX-125 Observer also offers guided tours of the night sky at the touch of a button.
This GoTo telescope is perfect for astronomers, who want to move out of the realm of novice skywatching and to intermediate level, with plans to dabble in imaging the universe in the process.
