Our #126 2x Short Focus Barlow is our most commonly recommended Barlow lens. It doubles the power of any 1.25-Inch eyepiece without adding a very long extension between the telescope and the eyepiece. Designed for the ETX, it works well with any telescope.
The Meade 07210 No.932 45-Degree Erecting Image Prism Telescope Eyepiece is ideal for all Meade ETX models except ETX-60, 70 and 80AT. This prism creates images ideal for terrestrial observing that are upright and laterally correct and comes with a built-in magnification factor of 1.08-times. This erecting prism with a 45-degree observing angle attaches easily and provides images that are great for daytime work as well. This item weighs .20-pounds. The Meade 07210 No.932 45-Degree Erecting Image Prism Telescope Eyepiece comes with a 1-year limited warranty. Meade has everything you need to capture the night sky for experienced star-shooters, serious researchers and beginners alike. Serious astronomers for years have flocked to Meade telescopes for their quality optical systems and patented technology.

Look through a Meade this evening and see what you've been missing.
TE2) ETX-80AT W/AUTOSTAR & TRIPOD Whether you want to study Saturn and its ring system, the primary cloud belts of Jupiter, or mountain ranges and other terrestrial objects, the Meade ETX-60AT offers extraordinary power for its price. It offers a 60mm multicoated, air-spaced achromatic objective lens manufactured with Grade A crown and flint optical glass components. The flip-mirror system lets you observe in the standard 90-degree position. Just flip the internal optical flat mirror up, and you'll be set for sky viewing.It's easy to carry, so you can take the Meade ETX-60AT to a distant mountaintop or to your own back yard. It only needs a quick 60-second alignment for setup. This telescope includes an Autostar hand controller that permits the automatic location of over 1,400 celestial objects. Just enter the object you wish to observe and watch as the telescope moves rapidly to place the object in your field of view. The Meade ETX-60AT also includes a serial interface, so you can download new software through your PC to the telescope. This way, the positions of Earth satellites may be updated for observation, or newly discovered objects, such as comets, can be located.
Our #128 3x Short Focus Barlow triples the magnification of any 1.25-Inch eyepiece without adding a very long extension between the telescope and the eyepiece. Designed for the ETX, it works well with any telescope. The Meade 128 3x Barlow Lens triples the magnifying power of your eyepiece. Each lens includes two optical elements for high-resolution, color-corrected imaging.
Celestron Erect Image Prism for Refractor and Schmidt Cassegrain
Did you know that most telescopes work well for daytime viewing as well as for astronomy? If you have a refractor or a catadioptric telescope (the Schmidt-Cassegrain is the most popular example), and you would like to use it for terrestrial observations, the most useful additional accessory you can buy is an erect-image diagonal. If you look through your telescope with the standard mirror or star diagonal installed, you will notice that objects may be either upside down, flipped so that you see a mirror image, or a combination of the two. This is fine for observations of celestial objects, but it can be a little confusing when you are trying to track a boat as it moves through the water, or an eagle as he flies towards his perch. Luckily, this is an easy problem to correct. Simply remove the standard diagonal from the telescope’s focuser or visual back, and install the Celestron 45º Erect Image Diagonal. Now, when you insert an eyepiece, objects will be right side up and left-to-right correct. The 45º angle of this Amici prism diagonal is very comfortable for daytime observations, where the telescope is often in a horizontal position. Please Note: Adding an erect-image diagonal to a Newtonian reflector will not result in images that are right side up and left-to-right correct. The optical design of a Newtonian will always produce images that are rotationally off in orientation. This does not mean that you can’t use a Newtonian reflector during the day, it just means that you have to get used to objects oriented in unrealistic positions.

Celestron 51630 Star Pointer Telescope Finderscope, Black
The Celestron Star Pointer Finderscope is the way to go if you want the easiest way possible to locate an object and center it in your eyepiece. A red dot finder, unlike an optical finder, has 1x magnification, displays a super wide field of view, and keeps the sky right side up and left-to-right correct, matching what you see with your unaided eyes. An LED creates a red dot, superimposed on a viewing screen, so you simply point the Star Pointer to the area or object you wish to observe, look through your eyepiece, and if properly aligned, the area in and around place you pointed the red dot will be centered in the field of view. If you like the idea of having some magnification, try installing both a red dot and optical finder on your telescope. Schmidt-Cassegrain and EdgeHD telescopes have multiple mounting bracket holes so you can get the best of both worlds. Just make sure to align both of them correctly, and you’ll get the best use out of each of your finders.
Bushnell leads the industry with its high quality scopes and view finders. Trusted by the world over, whether you're an avid huntsman, military, or recreational user, Bushnell will fit the mold for everything. The NorthStar Telescope from Bushnell makes it possible for amateur astronomers to identify, locate, and track celestial objects with simple, push-button control. The 645-millimeter x 4.5-inch reflector model features a power-boosting Barlow Lens for increased magnifications of 45x, 135x, 225x, and 675x. These powerful optics combine with the computer-driven location technology with a built-in database of 20,000 celestial objects, to unveil the mysteries of the night sky. The telescope comes with a hand-held remote control module that allows you to call up your target by entering a simple "Go To" command. The NorthStar computer then locates the target, and once locked on to the target, tracks it automatically for prolonged viewing. Meanwhile, the innovative RVO (Real Voice Output) feature on the remote provides a fun, interactive way to explore the night sky. The telescope also features a 1x wide-angle, red dot, finderscope that allows the user to quickly sight in on areas of the sky and find objects quickly. The NorthStar Telescope comes complete with a quick-release tripod, kinematic mount, and an accessory tray for fast, easy assembly.
