Image Erecting Prism for ETX-60, ETX-70 and ETX-80 Models
Produces a correctly oriented image and convenient 45° observing angle for terrestrial observations. A great item for a home with a view or nature watching.
All ETX-60, ETX-70 and ETX-80 models feature an internal flip mirror to reflect light to the telescope’s convnient 90° astronomical observing position. In this position the telescope’s image is upright, but mirror reversed left to right. While this is normal and poses no problem for astronomy, for terrestrial observing a corrected image is highly desirable which is where this useful accessory comes in.
For observing wildlife, a home with a view, or other Earthly applications the Erecting Prism results in an image both right side up and corrected left to right. It also provides a comfortable 45° observing angle which is more convenient for daytime work. Threads securely onto the rear photo port of the telescope.
Note: not compatible with ETX-90 or ETX-125, see item Meade Amici prism 45° 1,25" for ETX-90/105/125 for these models.
