About the Meade Eyepiece Holder / Visual Back - 1.25"...
The Meade Eyepiece Holder, also known as a "visual back", screws onto the 2" rear cell of Schmidt-Cassegrain or Maksutov-Cassegrain Meade Telescopes. Once the eyepiece holder is in place, astronomical accessories with 1.25" barrels, such as Basic Camera Adapters, Tele-Extenders, etc., slide into the other end, allowing the user to do astrophotography with their film or digital SLR camera and the proper T-ring.
This Meade Eyepiece Holder used to be included as standard equipment with Meade'''s 7"-10" Schmidt Cassegrains (LX90, LX10, LX50, classic LX200'''s, etc.), but are now optional with the latest LX series of Meade Telescopes due to the addition of the standard #1209 focuser.
If you would like to do telescope eyepiece projection photography with your LX200 Meade Telescope and you do not have a Meade Eyepiece Holder, you'''ll need one, plus a tele-extender, a T-ring, and your SLR or DSLR camera.
