Subject: questions Sent: Monday, September 22, 2003 23:42:37 From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Jean Noel Coumanne) je viens d'acqurir un ETX 105 . sur le tube figure la mention:"Meade quality assurance document""Final inspection by 738" cela signifie-t-il que je ne dois pas vrifier la collimation? le "electric focuser #1244" fonctionne-t-il bien avec un ETX 105 car la mise au point manuelle exige que l'on branle le tube du tlescope. merci dj, jncMike here: Please read the Email Etiquette page; your email was almost deleted UNREAD as SPAM.
Subject: Tripod #882 for ETX 105 Sent: Wednesday, September 17, 2003 13:45:22 From: email@example.com (Lorenzo Vernazza) I'm usimg my etx 105 with satisfaction, but now I would like to buy a tripod. Unfortunately the Meade #884 is too expensive: do you know if it is possible to use the cheaper #882 (even if it is for etx 70)? Surely it will be is less steady, but I don't use my telescope for photos... Thanks a lot. Clear skies Lorenzo VernazzaMike here: You could use it for awhile, that is until the weight and size of the larger telescope create a situation where the tripod will fall over and bust your telescope. Recommendation: don't.

Subject: ETX-105EC UHTC Sent: Thursday, September 4, 2003 17:27:26 From: firstname.lastname@example.org (skyray60) As a confirmed Celestron user, I was pleasantly surprised to hear no abnormal noises coming from the new ETX105 I purchased as my traveling scope. It came with the Autostar and Tripod as advertised and initial setup was easier than I had imagined. Of course, the image brightness is of no comparison to the C11, but for what it is, the Mak has great optics on bright objects like the moon and larger planets. The Autostar is easy to use and seems to place objects in the eyepiece FOV readily, especially when the tripod is leveled prior to the two star alignment. I have a friend that uses the ETX and his makes some noises that make you cringe when tracking, kind of like a coffee grinder on a bad day. This new ETX is much more quiet and seems to have a quality appeal to it. Overall, I am impressed. Ray Stinson
