Last year we reviewed the Meade ETX 90 Observer telescope which is an excellent unit for people getting serious about wanting to study the observable universe. We liked the build quality and portability of that scope.
This time around Meade sent us the LX 90, which at the AUD4500 price point is a much more advanced unit though similar in design and operation.
The 8" LX90 we reviewed has an 8” diameter f/10 ACF optical system (focal length 2000mm). It’s the smallest in the LX90 series.
Interestingly, this scope incorporates the two features that we would like on every computer telescope: GPS based easy set up and remote access and viewing.
Our anticipation to start imaging the heavens with the optional colour camera as well as with my Nikon DSLR is building as we begin assembling the unit.
Readers of this review site will have seen our previous article on the Victa 82V Rapid Trimmer.
We were/are pretty enthusiastic about that quiet yet very capable unit and even more gushy about the Victa chainsaw in that same 82V product group.
Let me tell you why.
Better yet: I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.
Back in 2008 we reviewed the Homestar PURE and found it to be a great little home planetarium.
This time, we look at its updated big brother, the bigger and brighter, Homestar Original.

Okay, this is a technology review site so why are we having a look at luggage and bags??
It comes as no surprise that our team sometimes has to travel with a fair bit of gear and in this day and age we need to be pretty savvy how we carry our stuff. Anti-theft measures are unfortunately highly necessary and that also includes electronic anti-theft (RFID safe pockets).
So let’s have a look at Travelon, a company that seems to specialise in protecting our hi-tech jewels in the best possible way. We review a backpack, a wheeled under-seat trolley, a convertible shoulder bag/backpack for the ladies and a small shoulder bag with plenty of room for passports, tablet and other valuables.
Plus, for good measure we’ll throw in a self-inflating seat cushion. Wondering how that works?
Come along on a recent domestic flight and trip when we practically lived out of these bags...
We are kicking it off today with an impressive unit, the V82VGT lithium ion grass trimmer.
Let us show you how these Victa cordless tools can help you to do your gardening work quicker, with less mess, less noise and safer and perhaps even cheaper....
The observable universe is a fascinating place to discover and even though we have been spoiled with everything that NASA has been bringing out over the last few decades, nothing is as exciting as seeing it through your own eyes with the aid of a telescope.
We have spent quite a few hours over many weeks with the Meade ETX 90 Observer telescope which is a compact and very capable computer-driven system.
And this is what we discovered.
Routers are indispensable in our modern homes. They create data connections between all our devices as well as connecting us (with the help of modems) to that ethereal world wide network we call the Internet.
The RT2600 is Synology’s second generation router and it is looking to make some serious connections.
