I've owned a Meade LX90 8" go-to scope for 9 years. Its one without GPS, so the entire alignment procedure is done manually. Pointing at true north (Polaris), leveling the scope, and doing the two-star alignment process. I'm guessing it takes me 5 minutes max to complete. Of course that requires at least a basic knowledge of the alignment stars, something the ETX-LS eliminates.
Sounds like a fun scope, especially useful for beginners.
Have fun with it.
