CES2017 New Meade Offerings

Post by Airconvent »

Check out the Meade offerings.
The autostar has been replaced with audiostar which add an audio output.
Another thing you noticed is the designs are now really nice looking (compared with the functional shapes of the old models) to attract new and younger users, so they form nice decorative and conversational pieces when the sky is cloudy!
The Eclipse range is a cheap way to get a basic solar scope while still having a regular scope. Basically, it is an improved design on their small scope range with a solar filter accessory. Great for the solar eclipse on 21 Aug...(unfortunately the full eclipse is not visible from Singapore..).

Celestron does not seem to have a booth this year like they had last year.
Check out their video here :
