Meade #929 2" SCT Diagonal - includes 1.25" adapter. Made in Japan!
UHTC (ultra high transmission coatings)
The Meade #929 2" mirror diagonal, provided as standard equipment
on larger LX200s and available optionally on other models,
attaches to the rear cell of all Meade LX-series telescopes (10" SCT's and larger require the 3.25" to 2" reducer thread adapter that is provided by the factory when the scope is purchased) and permits
the use of wide field 2" eyepieces. A 90° star diagonal, the term commonly associated with a
mirror-based device such as this, renders images which are upright but
laterally reversed. This is brighter than devices which render images
both upright and laterally correct-particularly important when you're
trying to squeeze the last bit of magnification out of your telescope.
The #929 will not interface with Meade electronic focusers.
#929 diagonal includes an adapter to reduce the size of the eyepiece
barrel so that conventional 1.25" eyepieces can also be used.
We got this in as a trade - it is in very good condition, has a few marks on the finish. Optics and coatings are excellent. Comes in the original box. This is an older unit and it is made in Japan. They don't do that anymore! It weighs a little over a pound. Grab this hard to find item before someone else does!
