Pack it up and GO! Do you want a portable telescope that will do just about everything? The Meade 80mm ETX Observer can be used for astronomy as well as daytime terrestrial viewing, and if you add a safe solar filter (covering the front lens) you can even watch eclipses and see sunspots cross our nearest star! The ETX 80 Observer is also computerized and will take you to thousands of objects with the push of a button, and then tell you about some of the highlights through the Meade AudioStar controller. High Point Scientific has bundled the ETX 80 with extra accessories that will really increase your enjoyment of this telescope!

  • 13-Piece 1.25" Eyepiece and Filter Kit includes five Plossl 1.25” eyepieces, a 2X Barlow lens, and a set of colored filters for planetary viewing! All items are safely stored in an ease-to-carry accessory case! Since you already get two eyepieces with the Meade ETX 80 Observer, you will have a total of seven (7) eyepieces to view through, and because the 2X Barlow doubles the magnification of any 1.25" eyepiece, that means you will have an astounding 14 different magnifications to choose from!
  • We have also included the Celestron 7AH 12V Rechargeable Power Supply with the Meade ETX 80 Observer Bundle. Now you don't have to use up your AA batteries whenever you want to observe. Just plug the included Meade 607 DC power cable into the telescope and the charged power supply, place the battery under your tripod legs, and observe the universe to your heart's content!

About the 13-Piece 1.25" Filter and Eyepiece Kit*

This eyepiece and filter kit is an amazing deal and will allow you to match your telescope’s magnification to different types of celestial objects, such as the Moon, the planets, brighter compact deep-sky objects such as star clusters and larger, more diffuse objects like galaxies and nebulae. Use any of your eyepieces alone, or pair them with the included 2X Barlow to double the magnification! Not counting any eyepieces you receive as standard equipment with your telescope, that means you will have ten (10) magnifications to choose from!

You will also receive six filters to use while viewing the planets. It takes some experimentation, but different colored filters will make details on a planet’s surface or cloud structure more prominent. These glass filters have threaded aluminum cells that screw onto the bottom of any of the eyepieces in this kit, as well as other 1.25” eyepieces you purchase later. Before long, you will know exactly which filter to use to more easily see, for instance, the polar ice caps on Mars or storms in the cloud structure of Jupiter.

All of the eyepieces and filters in this kit come stored in an aluminum case. Inside you will find protective foam that cushions your astronomy accessories. The case may be silver or black, it all depends on our availability at the time, but either way, you will find that there is some extra room for more telescope eyepieces, filters, or other small accessories.

Please Note: The brand of the eyepiece & filter kit you receive will depend upon availability. Rest assured that you will receive five (5) 1.25 eyepieces, a 2X 1.25” Barlow lens and six (6) 1.25” filters in an aluminum case, however, the focal lengths of the eyepieces and the color of the filters, while all of similar quality, will vary slightly, and the aluminum case will be either silver or black. The pictures shown are representative of the number and type of accessories you will receive in the case, but the styling of the eyepieces and filter colors may vary.
