"The promise of video astronomy is appealing. Haven't we all imagewished we could record what we see in the telescope, or even view it on a television from the comfort of our living room? Meade #902 Electronic Eyepiece 07166 provides an inexpensive way to enjoy video astronomy. It's hard to imagine anything more straightforward than this. It is no surprise that Meade Electronic Eyepieces are our best selling Eyepiece. Now you can view real-time images from your telescope on a television set.

Most telescope users keep a handful of eyepieces at the ready to provide a variety of magnification options for different observing subjects.
