Packed with essential accessories for 10"/12"/14" LX200 telescopes, this Meade Accessory Bundle #2 from B&H gives users a dielectric-coated high-transmission 2" diagonal, two ultra-wide angle eyepieces, a power supply, a powerful binocular, and a laser pointer.
To enhance your observational experience, three items are included from Meade's Series 5000 line of products. First, the 90° diagonal: it has a dielectric coating for light transmission of greater than 99% to limit light loss, maintain image brightness, and enhance contrast. A threaded collar allows it to be installed on most Schmidt-Cassegrain backs, including LX200 models, and comes with a 1.25" adapter so you can use both 2" and 1.25" eyepieces and accessories. Next, is a 15mm Mega Wide Angle eyepiece. This 8-element optic has an impressive 100° angle of view to give you an immersive visual experience. Fully multicoated optics ensure bright and clear images, and this eyepiece is parfocal with all other Series 5000 eyepieces, which means when you change eyepieces there is little or no need to refocus. Complementing the relative low power potential of the 15mm eyepiece is the 21mm eyepiece. Since this is also a Series 5000, it shares the same features and properties as the small one but with a higher magnification potential. Both eyepieces have a 2" diameter barrel, slip-resistant textured surfaces for sure handling, are waterproof, and come with a fold-down eyecup.
To power the telescope and any accessories, gear, or small electronic devices like smartphones, is the PSLXPS17 12 VDC 17 Ah Power Supply. This 12 VDC battery pack has two car/vehicle sockets, two USB ports, an AM/FM radio with a distress siren, a white spot light for navigating to your observation sight, and a red light so you can work without affecting your night-adjusted vision. Charge the battery from your car or from a 110 VAC US outlet with the two included power cords. This fully-fused accessory protects your delicate gear from surges to ensure a long-life.
Since astronomy is often a group activity, Meade includes two more items to help with that. First is a set of powerful 15x70 astronomical binoculars. These can be used for observing comets and meteor showers, to spot planets and other objects, to help direct the scope observer to certain areas, and general wide-field viewing. Finally, there is a green laser pointer so you can point out to your friends and family the wonders of the night sky. Green is very easy for the human eye to see, and with it's 532nm wavelength everyone will be able to see the beam so it'll be easier for them to pick out what you're pointing at.
