The ETX-Autostar observation system

The ETX-Autostar observation system consists of the ETX telescope, the Autostar and the Tripod. How you set up these three components would determine how precise and consistent is your observation. You need to look at the ETX telescope, Autostar and the tripod as an integrated system.

There is no overall instruction for the beginner.
There is a manual for the telescope on how to use the telescope. There is also the very brief manual on how to setup the Autostar. There may be a manual for the tripod. Each part of the observation system (telescope, Autostar and tripod) comes with its instruction with very little overall consideration. It is important the system work with each other. Worst of all, the manual assumes that the beginner user know how the entire system should work together.

This guide book take the entire ETX-Autostar observation system as a whole and guide you though step-by-step process to integrate your telescope, Autostar and tripod in to one observation system. You will achieve precise GOTO night after night after night without frustration.

There will be no consistency without precision steps. A small error here, a little off there, and these little imprecision add up to big error. If setup properly, the ETX/Autostar telescope, is amazingly precise even at such a low cost This guide book will show you all the precision steps require for perfect results. This field guide is designed to show all the essentials on how to setup and align the Meade ETX/Autostar Observation system with precision without going into a lot of boring theory. This is a practical guide that if you follow the instruction, you will get the desired result.

This is how good you GOTO can be:

By following the instruction in this guide book, you can expect ALL target stars will appear in the viewfinder, better than 80% of GOTO targets will appear (not necessarily centered) in the 26mm eyepiece of the ETX-90EC. You may not need to use your viewfinder after followin my method. If you follow the instruction here, you will get good GOTO consistently, night after night of comfortable star glazing without frustration. The instructions here will show you the step-by-step process how to achieve precision results.

Total setup and alignment time for perfect GOTO: 10 minutes!

What is In the Guide Book:

Learn Astronomy the easy way.
What can be easier than looking at the computer screen and compare the screen with the sky. Point and Click the telescope to the star of you choice right on the computer screen.

Planetarium and Telescope control Software (Included)

Yes, point your mouse on the computer screen and control the telescope. Point to a Planet, a star, a galaxy... on your computer screen and command the telescope to point to wherever you have selected. This is a cable set and software combo that allows you to control your Meade telescope with Meade 497 Autostar from your computer. The software sends commands to the Meade #495 or #497Autostar to control the telescope.

It is very simple and fun, these are the steps:

  • Install the planetarium software in your computer.
  • Configure the software similar to the way you configure the Autostar by entering the location (Longitude and Latitude) and time zone. The instruction to find you EXACT Longitude and Latitude of you address is included also. Yes, that is it. You can custom configure the software if you want but you can use it with just this simple setup.

  • Connect the Autostar to you computer with the cable set, a notebook computer if you want to be really portable outdoor.
  • You align you telescope the same way using the Autostar.
  • Activate the connection between the telescope and computer and you are ready to have fun.
Point, Click and make the Telescope Points
You simple select any object (star, planet, constellation) on the computer screen, click a button , and the telescope start "slewing" (telescope movement is call slewing). The telescope then point to the selected object and stop.

You wonder where the star, planet or constellation is in the sky? You can use the Find function to find and point your telescope. You may type in the name of the object or select from the drop down menu if you don't even know the correct spelling.
