The ETX-Autostar Field Guide Book on CD
The Step-by-Step guide book for the Meade ETX Autostar Observation System
This is the step-by-step book that guides you through all the setup, alignment to achieve precision GOTO night after night without frustration. All the little tricks that makes setting up, aligning and using your ETX-Autostar observing system easy. Over 50 information packed pages with many illustrations and photographs. A collections of many hours of time and frustration saving experience. (Instructions applies to DS telescope also)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 Meade ETX-Autostar observation system as a whole and guide you though step-by-step process to integrate you telescope, Autostar and tripod in to one observation system. You will achieve perfect 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.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!
