Meade 1.25" Star Diagonal - 90º

Star diagonals let you view objects at a 90° angle from the direction the telescope is pointing. This means your viewing session will be much more comfortable - especially when the telescope is pointing straight up! The Meade 918A was designed to fit all 1.25" focusers and visual backs, and accepts any 1.25" eyepiece.

This is not the best diagonal when using your telescope as a "spotting scope" during the day for viewing wildlife, etc. The image will appear right side up, but reversed from left to right. A better choice for land viewing is the 45º Erect Image Diagonal, which will display a correctly oriented scene in all directions (right side up, and left-to-right correct). If you are interested in a 45º erect-image diagonal, you can find a few options in the "Accessories" tab above.

I'm concerned about this prism (made in China and the quality control behind it. The one I received with my ETX LS6 had large gap on the screw down cover and a rubber shim out of place.
