The telescope ETX-80-AT consists of a lens telescope (refractor) and an automatically controlled, azimuthal two-arm fork mount. The refractor with 80mm opening has a focal length of 400mm, and therefore an aperture ratio of F5. The azimuthal mounting helps to navigate the telescope with two motors, by horizontal and vertical movements across your range. The Autostar handbox electronic control is included. Without having to use your home PC, the Autostar is able to automatically move and track a large number of objects in the night sky so that the object of attention always remains in the field of view despite the Earth's rotation. It comes supplied with a compass, which will help set up the mount and also when orienting the night sky. The built-in telescopic Barlow lens doubles the magnification potential when observing. Application: The ETX-80 offers ambitious beginners and amateur astronomers the opportunity to approach the night sky with confidence. Automatic positioning with countless stored objects, automatic tracking and very low weight allow the amateur astronomers to observe the skies from the comfort of their own garden or local countryside. The 80mm telescopic opening shows the moon with its craters and valleys, the rings of Saturn or the cloud bands of Jupiter. However, especially large objects need little magnification, such as the Pleiades and other star clusters, which are suited for this telescope. With an optional 45° reversing prism, the telescope can also be used for daily observations.

Meade will replace the Autostar FOC. Send it back and they will send you an English version. Understandably, this is not perfect. But it is a FOC solution.
