Built-in digital camera doesn’t need an attached computer: The ETX-LS is equipped with an easy-to-use interface and a sensitive, wide-angle (8° field) digital imager mounted under the optical tube. The camera takes vibrant, low-power, low-noise 640 x 480 pixel images of objects in the night sky through its own short focal length lens while you view them through an eyepiece at higher powers through the scope. An SD card slot in the ETX-LS lets you store the images on an optional SD card to view and process on your computer later or you can view them immediately by using the scope’s video output and an optional monitor. The included ETX-LS Astronomer-Inside™ software guides you to the best objects in the night sky and delivers a celestial encyclopedia of over four hours of audio that you can hear through the scope’s built-in speaker and 30 minutes of movies and animations that can be viewed on an optional monitor to take the user on an interactive guided tour of hundreds of night sky objects.
