diagonal questioin

Postby Guest on Thu Mar 05, 2009 8:44 am

A recently purchased a meade series 5000 2" diagonal for my LX90 acf scope. The person I talked with said it would attach directly to the back of the scope without an adapter. I can't seem to get it to attach. It looks like I need some type of male to female adapter. Am I doing something wrong? The only way it looks like it would attach is if I removed the piece at the back of the scope were the housing for the 1.25 diagonal attaches. That appears to be solid piece that can not be removed.

Please help

Thanks
Bill

Hi

Not sure who told you that, but on that scope you will need a visual back (eyepiece holder), such as the Meade 07182. Just unthread you present diagonal, thread on the visula back, insert the 5000 and you're good to go.

Hi,

I already have the piece you recomend. It is for 1.25 inch. The diagonal that came with the scope fits in it. I need something to attach a 2" diagonal to the back of the scope. Is there a larger one for 2"?

Thanks

Hi

Will need to go to the 07085 if you are using 2" stuff.
