Abstract

In the late 1990s Meade Instruments Corporation revolutionized the small telescope market by introducing a line of fully computerized telescopes that could find and track a large number of celestial objects at the push of a button. What’s is more, these computerized Go-To telescopes were offered at prices that suited the budgets of a large number of amateurs and not just the elite few.
