4-0 out of 5 stars It was worth the price, but don't expect ccd performance
Having read the reviews of others prior to purchasing my electronic eyepiece, I did not expect too much from it.But for the price I paid, I would buy it again.My main dislike is the apparent focal length.It is the equivalent of about a 4mm lens.I live in a major metropolitan area with lots of haze and light pollution, a 4mm optical lens is of questionable value.The electronics makes it worst.I can see earth's moon pretty well, but only the brightest two of Jupiter's four visible moons.Forget about seeing dim stars or deep space objects.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product with alot of potential
I bought this product on sale for $39.00 at a local camera store after reading the reviews on this page. This was after I also bought an Orion Electronic eyepiece the week before. One thing that makes this eyepiece infinetly better than the Orion eyepiece is the fact that it is threaded for filters (or stacking of multiple filters) whereas the Orion eyepiece is not. Using it on my 6" reflector, I first tried it with a white light solar filter. The view was crisp as I expected on both the Meade and the Orion eyepiece. The Meade eyepiece is alittle larger than the Orion eyepiece (4mm vs. Orion's 3.8mm) but it is not really too noticeable. Viewing the moon at gibbous phase and the contrast tweaked, the view was also crisp and defined in both eyepieces. I finally tried it on Jupiter. Here is where the difference between the Orion eyepiece and the Meade eyepiece was most pronounced. Because the Orion eyepiece is not threaded, Jupiter came out completely whitewashed, even when the contrast was completely tweaked. Because the Meade eyepiece is able to be used with a filter, I placed a Baader's Planetary Contrast Booster on it. The 2 cloud belts at the equator were visible on my 20" TV as a monitor. Also visible were the 4 moons at the same setting. When used with a video card tied in to a pc, a person can frame-grab and have their own "poor man's" version of a CCD picture. Using this method, suprisingly good pictures that rival much higher priced CCD's may be achieved.This eyepiece in my opinion is well worth the price (even if you don't get it on sale) and has alot of potential when used with a video card. Just remeber to buy some extension cords and adapters for the RCA cables.

5-0 out of 5 stars great addition to any telescope
This eyepiece is quite nice. I tried it out and was amazed at the results. I use it on a six inch reflecting telescope. I used it first on the best target in the night sky, the Moon. It looked as though I was looking through a window on an apollo capsule orbiting the moon. I am not kidding. It was great. I then moved over to Saturn. I could clearly see the rings and bands of clouds. This item is worth the cost! ... Read more

This Meade eyepice is of excellent build quality. It offers very good resolution of the planets, moon, starclusters, planetary nebulae, and double stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great general purpose high power eyepiece
The Meade Series 4000 Super Pl�ssls are an improvment over the 3000 series Pl�ssls. The 9.7mm is used for high power observing on most telescopes. This eyepiece offers a magnification of 129x on an ETX90 or 206x on a 2000mm focal length telescope like the LX90. At high magnifications one requires a steady atmosphere, or else the image appears blurry due to bad "seeing". But with steady skies, this eyepiece produces stunning views of the planets. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A must for ETX90 astronomers.
This finder, a standard on the ETX125, is a must for the ETX90 if one plans on using it for astronomy. The straight thru finder is fine for birding, or other terrestrial viewing, but is akwardly placed for most astronomical observing, especially near the zenith (overhead). The tiny screw used to hold the finder can be difficult to replace. Then again, it is still only a 25mm finder.

3-0 out of 5 stars "This should be standard Meade!"
I own a Meade ETX-90EC and it comes standard with the straight through finder.As most ETX-90 owners will testify, it is utterly hopeless for anything astronomical.Meade should be ashamed of putting this useless finder on their otherwise cool scopes.You can purchase the Right Angle Finder as an extra (which comes standard on the ETX-125EC) and locating objects manually will be dramatically easier, although not 100% suitable.It's a relatively expensive purchase, but will make your viewing time that much more enjoyable.Check out Mike Weasners site for the best information on ETX's and alternative finder scopes.Recommended, but check out alternatives also.

4-0 out of 5 stars Greatfor terrestrial, ok for astronomy
This 45 degree erecting prism is great for birding or terrestrial viewing but is not suitable for star gazing (imagine if the star is right above your head).For star gazingthe prism does not reflect as much light as desired so you won't be able to see dim distant objects easily, for that I recommend star diagonal with everbrite mirror ( from televue), it will cost more but a good investment for anyone who is serious about star gazing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Useful- but not for astronomy
This is a generic Pacific-rim made prism imported by Meade, and not terribly different from similar items sold by Celestron, Orion and other popular companies catering to amateur astronomers. It's a useful accessoryfor nature viewing, but don't try to use it for star gazing.Because ofhow they're constructed, with multiple reflecting surfaces, erectingdiagonals lose a lot of light, something you can't afford when looking atdistant, dim images. Worse, they produce ghost images- for every star orplanet, you'll see a dim twin nearby. Save it for daylight use, and you'llhave no problem.

I know I was really confused on what I would need to do this. But I figured it out so I thought that I would let you all know! First of all you need to get the correct T-ADAPTER for your telescope (For the ETX-60AT & 70AT the #64ST, for the ETX-90 and higher you need the #64) That is part that actually atteches to the telescope. Then you need a T-RING that fits your specific 35mm SLR removeable-lens camera. You should be able to get a T-RING at any camera reseller store, for around [..]. 1-0 out of 5 stars Wait before you buy

Only purchase the Meade 933, 45 Degree Erecting Prism if you want to use your ETX for terrestrial viewing.It doesn't really have a uselful astronomical application and tends only to diminish the quality of the object viewed in space.You don't necessarily need this for terrestrial viewing either unless you desire to see the object in its correct orientation, which is what this item is designed for.Does the job nicely in this respect.Recommended for terresrtrial viewing only.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for spotting use- but not for astronomy.
Erecting prisms like this Meade unit are a great help for terrestrial use, but don't try to use it for astronomical viewing. The multiple reflecting surfaces in the prism result in multiple ghost images when trying to view stars and other dim astronomical objects. If you buy a Meade ETX with the idea of using it for nature viewing you'll find it handy. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Essential accessory for your ETX
During winter dew is a major issue with my astronomical viewing.On those clear nights when I am out with the ETX, very often I have dew forming relatively quickly.I am typically out for two to four hours weather permitting, and invariably everything is getting soaked.Scope, tables, atlas etc.I havn't as yet invested in a heated element (corrector warmer) and rely solely on my Meade Dew Shield. At some stage however, I will definitely be purchasing one to compliment the dew shield.After about three to four hours, even with the shield on I begin to notice some buildup of dew on the optics.The different Meade dew shield model numbers for the various ETX scopes are as follows:ETX-60AT and ETX-70AT (#670), ETX-90 (#673), ETX-105EC (#675), and ETX-125EC (#678). Overall, I am generally pleased with the shield.It is made of solid plastic and screws on securely to the ETX tube, where the lens cap normally screws on. Obviously this means you have to remove it each time you want to put the dust cap back on. I have read of one owner who keeps his dew shield on permanently and has made a foam lens/dust cap for the end of the dew shield. Take care when unscrewing your dew shield from the tube as it does sometimes suffer the same problem as the lens cap.That is, it can stick and not unscrew easily.Don't panic.Just grip the tube firmly and unscrew the shield/lens cap without unscrewing the front of the tube assembly.When screwing the shield on, do it gently and never force it, so not as to strip the thread.The shield has a flat black finish which looks nice, and absorbs stray reflections. I store mine by slipping it reversed over the tube and it fits nicely in the Meade ETX Hardcase. And now for the important part, use your dew shield all the time, summer and winter.It performs one other extremely important function.It assists greatly in protecting your optics from pollen.Pollen is the number one problem that can affect your beautiful ETX, and ruin the one part of your scope that really can't be replaced easily.Trust me on this one, I have damaged optics on my first ETX as a result of my ignorance about pollen.Since using the dew shield I have noticed much less of a pollen problem on my optics.So not only does the shield protect against dew, it protects against all the other contaminents that can be carried in the air. Why have I only given the shield 3 stars?The shield is simply overpriced, otherwise it would have rated a 5.Unfortunately though folks, if you want to protect those optics and maximise your viewing, you really need one.Clear skies everyone.

4-0 out of 5 stars Should come with the telescope
Unless you live in the desert or something, a dew shield seems necessary for any telescope. (Most telescopes come with them.) This one works just fine with the ETX-70. It stores nicely in the Hard Carry Case. It's made of lightweight plastic (as is most of the ETX-70) so you can be pretty sure it won't hurt your motor and gears. It doesn't seem to make the tripod any shakier than it already is. I just wish it came with the scope. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Useful to enhance your planetary views!
This color filter set is an excellent buy if you want to enhance visual details and increase observable contrast of the moon and the planets. For less than forty dollars (US$ 40.oo) you will get a set of four filters that will tread into the barrels of any eyepiece with a 1.25" outside barrel diameter (O.D.) including all Meade 1.25" (inches) O.D. eyepieces. Although the package says that the filters are for use with the Meade ETX 60AT and ETX 70-AT telescopes I have used them in a small 4 1/2 inches Tasco Reflector and also with my ten inches Meade Dobsonian to enjoy beautiful views of Jupiter, Saturn and the Moon. The filters are light yellow, light red, light blue and neutral density. The first three are useful to enhance the belts of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and the surface of Mars while the neutral density filter is of great help in order to reduce the glare that sometimes plagues lunar observation. The filters are individually packed in a plastic case for convenient storage and transportation. A great buy! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars horrible
This eyepiece has such bad eye-relief that even if you push it into your eyesocket as hard as you can, you still can't see full field of view. the actual glass is only half the size of my 3.6 mm celestron nexstar pl. Also the quality of view(what little you can see of it with such small eye-relief that is) is also the worst i have seen in any eyepiece including some realy cheap eyepieces i have.

2-0 out of 5 stars Probably not what you want
I love the ETX 70, it's a cheap but good rich field telescope. But this isn't the best way to improve it. There are two problems really. The first is that the ETX 70 doesn't take this much magnification very well for various reasons, both optical and mechanical. The other is that the quality of this eyepiece is not good. Admittedly it's cheap, but for only a little more, you can buy a good quality orthoscopic (I'd recommmend a bit longer focal length). Or buy a barlow that doubles the magnification of your supplied 9mm eyepiece (so you can see for yourself what I mean about too much magnification) but also doubles your supplied 25mm to a very useful 28x so you don't waste your money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very usable
As is normal magnification = tube focal lenght / eyepiece focal length.You can see from the simple equation that this will give you good magnification, and it is a little more forgiving that a 4mm, and has a better magnification than a a larger eye piece.Being the standard 1.25" means that this eyepiece can be used by many telescopes, but keep in mind what it is designed for.I would say use this for zooming in to what you want to see close, but keep a larger mm eyepiece handy for just general panning around. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Focal length matters
This eyepiece apparently does not do too well in a short focal length telescope like the small refectors, and provides fuzzy edges.That would probably all go away on a longer focal length scope, say f/9 to f/15.Simpler (Fewer elements) eyepieces do not generally do as well on fast f/4 to f/8 scopes.But overall this is a fairly good eyepiece for lower powers.

3-0 out of 5 stars Update after receiving the eyepiece
This is an update of my review earlier. Now that I've received the eyepiece and had a chance to try it, I'm disappointed. The outer 25-30% of it's 67 degree field is severely distorted. This means it has no more real useable FOV than a standard plossl.4-0 out of 5 stars Awesome field of view and it won't empty your wallet.
This works just fine in my ETX 125 and also worked well in an 8" LX.Yeah, the box will say for ETX 60 and 70. But, Don't worry about it. If your scope takes a 1.25" eye piece, It will work.It's also true this is not the six element eyepiece. It is a four element version. But, It is has same wide 67 degree field of view and it's 1/3 the price. The coatings are good, the image is nice right to the edge, and it has ample eye relief.Although this is not the best eyepiece I've looked through, it offers a very pleasing veiw.A lot of bang for the buck. I'm glad I got one. I should have got two.If you have a binoviewer a pair of these would be real nice. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great addition
It really works as advertised and is a wonderful addition to any lens collection.

3-0 out of 5 stars Adequate on the ETX90-EC
The Meade 124 2x Barlow Lens certainly zooms in a lot closer to the viewed object.It's difficult for an amatuer like me to say for sure if it actually doubles the magnification, I'll have to rely on Meades assurances for that.It's a useful addition for the ETX90 but it does have some drawbacks.The light gathering capabilities of the ETX90 restrict the magnification you can use to certain limits.To high a magnification and things start getting blurry.I have 26mm, 15mm and 9.7mm meade eyepieces in my collection.The 26mm is my most frequently used.I use the barlow mostly with the 26mm and occasionally with the 15 and 9.7.However, only in most steadiest of conditions do I get good results with the barlow and 15 and 9.7 combinations.Most of the time I get a much clearer view with the eyepiece alone. Things just get less defined with the barlow and higher power eyepieces combinations.Having said that, the barlow does give you a better range of magnifications and finding the most suitable one for a given situation is more likely.I use the barlow both for planetary and deep space viewing and find I have to adjust the focusing when putting in and taking out the barlow, which is a nuisance.I'm not convinced that the Meade Barlow I have is up to the standard of their other eyepieces in my collection as it seems to have some minute abberations on the lens itself.This is quite possible unique to mine, I'm not sure.Despite the above negatives, the Barlow is worth having with the ETX-90 and probably much more useful on the ETX-105 and 125. Recommended, but inspect and test your barlow on receipt of it and let Meade know immediately if it is not up to standard. Clear skies everyone.

4-0 out of 5 stars tight fit
Love the 2X barlow lens. It performs as stated by Meade. All lenses used in conjuntion with the Barlow are doubled I saw no degredation of objects viewed at all. The lens fit very tight in my first telescope but perfectly in my second. ... Read more
