      Comments about Meade 12mm Modified Achromatic Eyepiece w/ Cordless Illuminated Reticle (1.25"):

      A good aid in precisely centering objects in the eyepiece during alignment procedures. Go To functions are more accurate after use. Handy for better alignment of finder scope and OTA as well. Wireless is a good thing, one less wire to deal with. Solid construction and the illumination control has a nice positive feel to it. Optical quality is on par with others in this price range. The only issue would be "flaring" around the reticle lines regardless of illumination power, worse at high power but never really go away. Not too much of a problem until you try to center something very dim. All in all, a good product for the money.

          Comments about Meade 12mm Modified Achromatic Eyepiece w/ Cordless Illuminated Reticle (1.25"):

          This is very light, and easy to operate. It really helps me center the star in the EP when doing the alignment for the GT mount.

          One star deducted because I couldn't find a way to adjust the reticle to be as sharp as I want it to be, but this doesn't effect the function. Also, the cap seems to be missing from the box I got.
