          Comments about Meade Series 5000 2" Enhanced Diagonal:

          Bought it to replace the 1.25" star diagonal. Very sturdy construction and excellent optic with non marring 2"-1.25" adapter. Occasionally i experienced difficulty in insert 1.25" eyepiece into the adapter. Else everything just work fine. Perhaps it should come with a simple installation drawings but not difficult to figure it out even for a beginner like myself.

            Comments about Meade Series 5000 2" Enhanced Diagonal:

            Using the same eyepieces, looking at the same targets, there was a noticeable improvement in the sharpness and color definition. This item should be standard with the Meade Scopes. Do youself a favor and upgrade. [...]
