Product Info

Manufacturer Description

This specialty eyepiece is very useful for astrophotographers who need to lock onto guide stars, or for observers aligning their telescope or making astronomical measurements. The etched reticle pattern is internally red illuminated to stand out against a dark sky.

Meade's Modified Achromatic MA12mm illuminated reticle eyepiece is a must-have accessory. It is an excellent lower cost alternative to the 9mm illuminated reticle eyepiece. This 1.25" format eyepiece includes a three-element, fully-coated optical system with good eye relief, diopter adjustment and double-crossline reticle. It is great for manual guiding or for drift alignment that's so necessary in astrophotography. The upper (lens) section of this eyepiece rotates on a fine thread for precise diopter adjustment to the user's eye.

The Meade 1.25" 12mm MA Illuminated Reticle Eyepiece Corded Model includes 6 ft. cord and connector for direct plug-in to the control panels of Meade LX200, LX200GPS, and ED/APO telescopes. Separation of the power source and eyepiece permits reticle brightness adjustments to be made during an exposure without risk of vibrating the telescope. Red LED brightness control is effected from the telescope's hand controller or control panel.

Product carries full one year Meade factory limited warranty (within US/Canada only).

      This is a good reticle eyepiece for the Meade Lx 200 GPS however, the LED has stopped lighting up after using it only two or three times AND no one sells the replacement LED cord with with plug. I have tested it and the problem is between the plug and LED, not the jack on the LX200 panel. Now it is only good for use during the day time when i calibrate the tracking on a telephone pole. Anyone have an extra LED cord for this eyepiece that they are willing to sell?
