2" eyepiece for 5" bushnell mak?

Postby mlheppl on Mon Dec 31, 2012 9:55 am

I thought that I had read that the bushnell 78-8850 5" mak would accept a 2" eyepiece. I bought my wife the meade 5000 series 2" diagonal for her bushnell telescope. Unfortunately it will not thread onto the telescope. Is there an adapter that I can purchase to get the diagonal mounted to the telescope?

Hi,

I do not believe there is an adapter to enable the Meade Series 5000 2" diagonal to mount on your Bushnell 78-8850 5" Maksutov telescope.
