Meade 1.25" MA26mm, MA9mm & Econ 2x Barlow - Great Price!AP6.0(new but no box) OK, so you got a telescope at a garage sale or surplus store but it doesn't have any eyepieces with it. What do you do? First measure the opening where the eyepieces go. It will be 1.25" or .965" in diameter. If it is 1.25" and the scope looks like it still has the main mirror or lens in it, grab this set of eyepieces and start enjoying your bargain! If you want to give your old scope to your kid or grandkid but can't find the eyepieces? Same story. With this set you get 4 different magnifications. That should be enough for anybody! 26mm for low power, double that with the 2x barlow to 13mm for medium power. Then you have the 9mm for medium/high power and you can also double that with the 2x barlow for 4.5mm high power. What does all this mean? All telescopes have a focal length. Most are 700mm to 1000mm. Say you have 1000mm, (it should say near the focuser) just divide the eyepiece focal length, say 26mm into the scope focal length and you have the magnification: 38x. The smaller the eyepiece millimeter focal length, the higher the power. Always start with the low power and work your way up. Telescopes can be lots of fun but you need to be able to change the power for wide views or close up views. You won't find a better deal on replacement 1.25" diameter eyepieces anywhere! Shipping is cheap too. So go with the ebay seller everyone buys from when they need telescope parts and be sure you will get good parts and service!
These eyepieces have good-quality, coated lenses and comes with an economy 2x barlow. The eyepieces are Meade and the economy barlow is generic . The barlow has a plastic barrel with glass lenses but works well.
