Meade telescope reflector eyepiece camera 1.25" Electronic Eyepiece w box 2001:
This sale is for a 2001 Meade 1.25-inch Electronic Eyepiece, complete with its original print instructions, original dust cover for protecting the imaging sensor, a fresh-from-the-store 9 volt battery, and the original box.
Please note: before you can use this eyepiece, you will need to have an imaging video-out cable (RCA yellow). This is the both ends male pin video cable that you plug into your applicable screen for displaying live images. This eyepiece does NOT come with this cable. You can find one at various electronic stores, even thrift stores. They are not expensive.
These eyepiece units are fun and easy to use and will work on any tv screen, older computer monitors, and the earlier flat screens/lcds. They can work with some modern plasma and LED screens, but you will have to change the hertz rating for the image to display properly (this can be done in your screen's setup menu via its remote control).
Once you plug the yellow cable into this eyepiece and to your monitor of choice, you will be able to show live images of the Moon, brighter planets, very brightest stars and daytime-viewed objects on the screen. The wheel seen just above the chrome barrel is the contrast enhance wheel, which you turn until you see the clearest image on your screen. When the 9-volt battery needs changing, simply unscrew the top end of the body (see photo #6) and carefully pull-out the battery; no tools are needed. Very easy to do and to use.
This will work in ANY 1.25-inch focuser made by any major manufacturer. If you want to use this on a small telescope focuser with a .965-inch barrel size, simply unscrew the chrome barrel and it will now fit the smaller size! Cool! For a time, Orbitor also sold these "video eyepieces", which came from the same plant in China. Both work the same way.Please note that since this camera eyepiece uses only one format for color, images given on your screen will be monochrome (black and white).
Stands exactly 4.30-inches tall.Weighs exactly 5-ounces with battery installed.Aluminum and polyvinyl chloride plastic construction.
Packed with great care.
Combined shipping offered.
