Meade Instruments designed this Bundle Kit as the ultimate accessory pack for your LS6 or LS8 Lightswitch telescope. It includes a 3.5" color monitor that plugs into the Lightswitch Eclips CCD camera, a 1.25" 5-eyepiece/7-filter kit, a rechargeable power station, and a green laser pointer.

  • LS 3.5" Color LCD Video Monitor

    Meade designed the LS 3.5" Color LCD Video Monitor to plug directly into the their LS 6" and 8" LightSwitch telescope's integrated camera to clearly display video, still images, and menus. It attaches to the telescope using the included mounting bracket that fits under the telescope's keypad holder, and interfaces with the camera via a video cable. Power is supplied from the included battery pack, or it can be powered by one of Meade's universal power supplies with the included Y-cable, or with Meade's optional #607 cigarette lighter adapter.

  • Series 4000 Plossl Eyepiece & Filter Set (1.25")

    The Meade Series 4000 1.25" Plossl Eyepiece & Filter Set gives you five anti-reflection multicoated eyepieces with focal lengths from 6mm to 32mm for a wide range of magnifications. Each eyepiece has standard filter threads and fold-down eyecups. A 2x Barlow lens doubles the magnification potential of the eyepieces adding even more versatility.

    Complementing the eyepieces are six colored filters for planetary and lunar viewing. These are the most common and useful that Meade makes. The set also includes an ND96 Moon filter. The filter housings are anodized aluminum and the filters themselves are optical glass.

    To safely carry and store the eyepieces, the Barlow lens, and the filters, a hard aluminum case is included. The case has reinforced edges and corners with a sturdy hinged handle and dual lockable draw latches. The interior has egg-crate foam on the lid, and custom-cut foam for all the set components. There are also three pre-cut spaces for user-supplied eyepiece.

    Eyepieces
    • 1.25" diameter barrel
    • Fully anti-reflection coated
    • Fold-down rubber eyecups
    • 52° apparent field of view
    • Four-element lens configuration
    • 6mm focal length produces the highest magnification in the set - ideal for lunar and planetary viewing
    • 9mm focal length offers a comfortable combination of power, field of view, and longer eye relief
    • 13mm focal length produces a moderate magnification with a wider field of view and longer eye relief than short focal length eyepieces
    • 18mm focal length yields a lower magnification than the 13mm model, but higher than the much longer 32mm
    • 32mm focal length offers the lowest power, widest field of view, and longest eye relief
    Filters
    General:
    • Fits most 1.25" eyepieces and accessories

    Barlow Lens
    • 2x magnification effectively doubles the power of any eyepiece put in it
    • Makes the set of five eyepieces perform like ten
    • Doubles the power without significantly affecting the eye relief, so using short focal length/high magnification eyepieces is easier
    • Fully multi-coated optics
    Case
    • Aluminum with reinforced corners and edges
    • Dual locking draw latches, two keys included
    • Sturdy hinged handle

  • PSLXPS7 12 VDC 7 Ah Power Supply

    Meade Instrument's PSLXPS7 12 VDC 7 Ah Power Supply is a valuable accessory to power any Meade 12V telescope. In addition to powering your telescope, it features two 5V USB ports to charge small electronic devices such as phones and GPS hand units, and two 12 VDC car/vehicle ports for larger devices. All outputs are fuse-protected and the fuse is changeable if it blows. The power supply also has a powerful LED spotlight equipped with a hinged head for precise beam placement when you're navigating to the observation sight or setting up. A secondary flashlight is set about the spotlight for performing tasks, and an included red filter snaps over the lens to illuminate without affecting night-adjusted vision. The flashlight also has a strobe mode to signal observation partners or in emergencies. Its rechargeable lead acid battery can be charged using the included wall or car/vehicle plugs, and colored LEDs allow you to monitor the charge and battery status at a glance. To make carrying and transporting this 8.5 pound power supply easier is an integrated handle and a detachable shoulder strap is included.
