Subject:	Meade ETX90 with no autostar

From:	Sai Lam (
I found a Meade ETX90 that I'm interested in purchasing.  But the
selling says it doesnt have Autostar controller nor the port for it.
So my guess is that its one of the very early models (correct me if I'm
wrong).  If it is one of the 90s model  is there any way
to convert it to "go-to" with Autostar. 
Mike here: It is probably the ETX-90RA. If you can find one, you could add some GOTO capabilities by getting a "JMI NGC-microMAX/NGC-MAX" (see the Accessory Reviews: Miscellaneous page). Alternatively, you could remove the OTA from the fork arms and attach it on a different mount that has GOTO capabilities. See the Helpful Information: Telescope Tech Tips page.


Thanks..I will check it out
