      Easy to use and does what it was made for. If, like me, you are going to use this with a Meade ETX-90, you must also buy the adapter for this to fit.

          This attachment work for what it's intended for. It does not fit the back of the ETX 125 without the use of ETX rear cell adapter. I didn't give it 5 stars since the description didn't make this clear. Other than that it's built well and does the job.

                  Comments about Meade Eyepiece Holder 1.25 Inch - For attaching 1.25 Imagers to Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes:

                  This is being used to let me attach CCD cameras to the back port on an ETX, and does the job well. Unfortunately, while its two-piece construction is nice in that it makes it easy to align the eyepiece screw how you want, it also makes for a clumsy process of adding and removing the visual back. If you have a scope like mine where you will need to add and remove it often, it can be annoying.

                  I would primarily recommend this for very specific purposes (mounting cameras, mounting an eyepiece for collimation directly to the back of the scope), as for general visual use, I would rather have something capable of taking 2" eyepieces and 2" diagonals.

                  When the LX200GPS line began they all came with the Electronic Focuser. The only way you could attach an Eyepiece was to it. This piece of hardware lets you remove the focuser and attach an Eyepiece directly to the scope.

                  It works fine and well worth the money

                  Customer Q & A

                  Q1: Does it work for using 1.25" eyepieces in a DS 2130 reflective telescope?

                  A: It will work with anything that accepts 1.25" eyepieces.

                  Q2: Is this the thing needed to attach the 0,63 focal reducer together with a DSI camera or some other 1,25" eyepiece?

                  A: Actually you will not need this unless your schmidt cassegrain scope is only set-up for 2" eyepieces. The Focal reducer threads to the visual back of your scope and you can just put your eyepece into the focal reducer.

                  Q3: I have been loaned a 15 year old Meade 8" SCT. It is missing the eyepiece adapter that screws onto the back. My old Criteriaon Dynamax eyepiece adapter does not fit (it is too small.) Will this item fit an old Meade, s/n 8029xx? (The scope is also missing its mount, though I assume it will fit on a standard wedge.)

                  A: it should fit though it is hard to say, you may need a 2". Meade will be better able to answer questions regarding the older versions of the scopes that are no longer avaialble. you can reach them at 800-626-32333
