The Meade ETX-LS telescope is like a robot star finder. The computerized scope automatically locates the stars in the night sky for your viewing pleasure with the on-board GPS. It’s like astronomy for dummies!

Once the unit locks in on a celestial body, the built-in multimedia functions provide descriptions of the star, galaxy, moon, or planet you are looking at via audio clips and videos. If that’s not enough, you can also take photos of your discoveries with the scope’s own camera.

The Meade ETX-LS telescope is available for approximately $1,299, and it's worth every penny to bring outer space right into your living room with ease.
