I have only gone and purchased one - ETX 90
Posted 01 December 2012 - 01:20 PM
I have never owned a ETX before, although I have repaired two ETX 125s. Well no more, I won one on the UK ebay site and for just over $150 (£111 what ever that is) I now own a very clean ETX 90 with a single speed ra motor. It came with the MA 25 and MA 9 eyepieces, 8X21 finderscope and the three legs to tilt it.
It will not tilt to the angle here, but I will make a wedge for it.
I will post a picture tomorrow.
Oh, and a quick look through it shows a very nice set of optics.

£111 = US$178 "what ever that is?" so you did well and enjoy your new toy Mike

I am a big fan of the ETX 90RA. I've owned and used one for years. I put together some thoughts on how to use them at http://bas-astro.com/blog/ if you get a chance to check them out. Tongue in Cheek but the scope is a serious instrument. Get one of those neat little blue bags, a red light, and a couple of star charts and your good to go.
Give us a report and some pix when you can.
I attached a photo of mine with a friend's Ethos. Hard to tell which is which.
