The AudioStar handheld control provides a database of 30,000 astronomical objects. Once aligned to the night sky, AudioStar can position the telescope to point to any of these objects and centre them in the eyepiece - of course only if the object is above the horizon. The GoTo functionality is supplemented by additional features, such as guided tours, position display and connection to a PC.
A special feature of the AudioStar controller is its built-in speaker. The built-in Astronomer Inside technology provides over four hours of audio commentary. The built-in astronomer will relate interesting information about astronomical objects located in the field of view!
UHTC is a special multi-layer coating on the front correction plate provides up to 15% more light transmission.
The result -brighter star clusters, finer details in nebulae and more surface detail on planets!
Meade's ACF optical design eliminates the typical aberrations of all mirror optics. Thanks to ACF, the stars are also point-shaped right out to the edge of the image field, displaying no elongated comet-like distortions.
The image field is flatter than that of classic Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes.
ACF optical systems show their strengths especially in astrophotographic applications.
