    Comments about Meade Series 5000 Enhanced 2 Inch Dielectric Telescope Diagonal:

    First thing I noticed when I got this was how well packaged the product was form Meade. It comes in a large, 8" square box with custom cut out foam protecting all sides of the product. Brass compression rings are used all around the joints, and the anodized aluminum body feels very sturdy. Visually, this gave no apparent loss in light from using my telescope without a diagonal. Overall a very nice product and I would suggest paying the extra for this diagonal over other dielectric options.

            The 1.25" EyePiece holder that shipped with my new Meade 8" LS ACF was defective. So was the first replacement sent from Meade.
            I received the third the same day as I received the 2" from Hayneedle. Meade took five plus travel days to receive each of the 1.25" eyepieces.
            Out of frastration I order the 2" and received this within two days of ordering from Hayneedle.

            If your thinking of upgrading your diagonal to a dielectric, this one from Meade is the way to go. Going with a 2" gives you the flexibility to use those eyepieces and the adaptor allows the 1.25 eyepieces as well. Excellent quality and works extremely well. Guarantees a flat mirror surface especially with 1.25 eyepieces. Well worth the upgrade.

                  Utilized for viewing the annular solar eclipse last night. Performed well. Will be using for the Venus transit on June 5, 2012 as well. Expect the same great viewing.

                    I used my new diagonal right away with a 2" 16mm zhummell wide view lens and immediately saw the sky with a whole new perspective. What a difference. Any skepticism I had quickly vanished when elusive star clusters lit up like a christmas tree!shipment was real fast at a great price.
