Manufacturer Description

Meade Closeout Special!

Meade has just discontinued this item. We purchased Meade's entire remaining inventory at a great closeout price and are passing our savings on to you. Get this for almost 50% off the regular retail price while supplies last.

The Meade #931 0.965" to1.25" hybrid diagonal for refracting telescopes produces a correctly oriented image and convenient 45° observing angle for terrestrial observations. It allows users of refractor telescopes with the smaller 0.965" focuser to use hundreds of commonly available1.25" eyepieces.

All refracting telescope models 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 931 Erecting Prism diagonal 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. Item weighs 2.9oz and does not include any end caps.

Important Note: This item, like all other diagonals, will not reach focus with any Newtonian/Dobsonian reflecting telescope models. It is also not recommended for astronomy.

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

      Easy to Use,Lightweight,Accurate,Compact,Quality Lenses,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      None for me

      Comments:

      I used this diagonal to upgrade an old 2" low end refractor for terrestial viewing. Added a few 1.25" eyepieces and it has worked out very well.

      5.0 It worked for us

      Pros:

      Accurate

      Cons:

      Comments:

      It does the job I needed it to do. I think the optics could have been higher quality but it is very nice not to have to lie on the ground to get to look through the telescope.

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
