Meade 1.25" Eyepiece Holder for SCT Telescopes - 07182

SKU: MEA-07182

Meade 1.25" Eyepiece Holder for Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes

The 1.25" eyepiece holder, also known as a "visual back", screws onto the 2" rear cell threads of Schmidt-Cassegrain or Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes. A 1.25" eyepiece will fit directly into this visual back, allowing direct observations at the Cassegrain focus.

Once the eyepiece holder is in place, astronomical accessories with 1.25" barrels, such as Basic Camera Adapters, Tele-Extenders, etc., slide into the other end, allowing the user to do astrophotography with their film or digital SLR camera and the proper T-ring.

Please note, this eyepiece holder can be used with Maksutov-Cassegrain telescopes as well, as long as the appropriate adapter is being used. For example, to use this eyepiece holder with a Meade ETX telescope, you would need the Meade Rear Cell Adapter for ETX Telescopes (not included).
