Has Your Meade ETX Telescope got a mind of it's own? Does it always point the wrong way?

Put yourself in control with a 10 easy step guide to master your ETX and Autostar!

Dear Meade ETX owner,

You are probably tearing your hair out, as I was, trying to persuade your Meade ETX to set up quickly and easily, point at the objects you want to look at and give you a clear sharp image of the objects you want to see! But all you get is hassle and frustration so ....

... it’s back in its box under the bed waiting
for you to try again or put it on Ebay!

Is this a familiar story of
frustration and confusion?

Imagine how it was when I bought my very first ETX home and rushed outside on the first clear night and with so much excitement, my family even came to take a look, as I extolled the virtues of this first computer driven telescope –“ the future of astronomy” I said!

Bear in mind that I sell telescopes for a living and so my family is quite used to my enthusiasm and they also are aware that I do know one end of a telescope from the other.

I was also supposed to be selling these little marvels to eager astronomers like yourself, so I thought that I had better get familiar with the technology…

With that, I pressed the buttons and the scope whirred into life and started moving around! Cheers from the onlookers and I stood there grinning delightedly.

However, when it stopped moving it was pointing in completely the wrong direction and the cheers turned to hoots of laughter from my children and dark mutterings about boys toys from my wife!

Well, by the time we had the next clear night, I had read and re-read the manual, and out we all trooped! This time the scope whirred and moved and we all waited with bated breath and… you guessed it!I have never lived it down – “ call yourself an astronomer Dad?” That did it! I wasn’t going to let this machine make a fool out of me.

By the third time I set it up, I had it all sorted and my evening’s viewing was fantastic – but lonely – the rest of my family had lost interest!

Help is at hand…

Since then I have discovered that my experience is quite common and so I decided it was time to write a simple step by step guide to ensure future Meade ETX owners skip all the frustration and get going quickly and easily.

So what are my credentials? A lifetime as an amateur astronomer, over 10 years in telescope retail, and I am a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and the equipment expert on the BBC Sky at Night Magazine. I also run a night-class at my local planetarium, so you can be assured that I’ll explain it all simply and easily.

Find out quickly and easily, in 10 short
lessons, what I learnt the hard way!

So come with me on a step-by step guide as you learn everything from setting up to turning your ETX into a robotic observatory. I’ll put you back in control of your telescope so that you will be using it like a professional!
