Meade #928 45° Erect-image Diagonal (1.25"), push-fit

Meade Model 928 Image Erecting Prism for Meade refracting telescopes #07217. 1.25" barrel. Produces a correctly oriented image and convenient 45° observing angle for terrestrial observations. Meade refracting telescope models (like all refractors) normally produce an image that is reversed or "inverted" due to the inherent nature of the lenses used in their optical configuration. This left to right mirror reversal of the image poses no problem for astronomy, however in terrestrial observing a corrected image is highly desirable which is where this useful accessory comes in. For observing wildlife, a home with a view, or other Earthly applications the Meade 928 Erecting Prism results in an image which is both right side up and corrected left to right. It also provides a comfortable 45° observing angle which is more convenient for daytime use. For all Meade refractors with 1.25" focusers including 70AZ, DS-2080 and DS-2090, and LXD75 AR5 and AR-6. May also be used with LX90, LX200 or other Schmidt-Cassegrain or Advanced Coma Free models with a 1.25" eyepiece holder. Note: not compatible with ETX models. Item carries full one year Meade factory limited warranty.

All ETX-90 and ETX-125 models feature an internal flip mirror to reflect light to the telescope’s convenient 90° astronomical observing position. In this position the telescope’s image is upright, but mirror reversed from left to right. While this is normal and poses no problem for astronomy, in terrestrial observing a corrected image is highly desirable which is where this useful accessory comes in. For observing wildlife, a home with a view, or other Earthly applications the #932 45° Erecting Prism attaches in seconds and results in an image both right side up and correct left to right as well as a more convenient (for daytime work) 45° observing angle. Threads to the rear camera port. For all ETX-90 and ETX-125 models. Product carries full one year Meade factory limited warranty.

A great item for a home with a view or nature watching. All ETX-60, ETX-70 and ETX-80 models all feature an internal flip mirror to reflect light to the telescope’s convnient 90° astronomical observing position. In this position the telescope’s image is upright, but mirror reversed left to right. While this is normal and poses no problem for astronomy, for terrestrial observing a corrected image is highly desirable which is where this useful accessory comes in. For observing wildlife, a home with a view, or other Earthly applications the #933 45° Erecting Prism results in an image both right side up and corrected left to right.
