Meade ETX125 Telescope

The Meade ETX-125 PE telescope has a 5-inch objective with super-sharp Maksutov optics.  It is extremely portable, runs off 8 AA batteries.  It is fully go-to.  It was purchased with grant money from the Employees Community Fund of Boeing St. Louis and will be used with a white light solar filter in our Solar studies unit that will offer day-time programs to local K-12 schools.  It can be used by members at night time and when no school programs are scheduled.  It is also available to suport public outreach activities.
