using the meade etx,
This review is from: Using the Meade ETX: 100 Objects You Can Really See with the Mighty ETX (The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series) (Paperback)
well santa just bought me shiny new etx meade 90ec and i thought getting started was easy....well i have to say i wish i had this book before i started! this makes everything easier and hence more enjoyable,just a shame meade dont package this with the telescope as its an essential purchase! The book concentrates mainly on the etx 90ec but would be handy for all meade's small telescope range. Pages are in black and white but written for the beginner and are clear and concise. Handy to take with you (i used to use the web for hints and tips) but thats no good upon a hilltop in winter!This guy knows his stuff and soon you will too ! i would recommend you read this book cover to cover to reap the most rewards, which is easy as its so enjoyable to read. Buy it if you a)are thinking of buying a meade/small scope or b)you have one. get it now!
