I recently acquired a Bresser Pulsar (just noticed it's called Wega in the German manual). I want to use it as a travel scope.

 

I would like to use it for terrestrial viewing also. However, the telescope didn't come with an erecting lens. (The manual states it was an optional extra.)

The 1.25 inch star diagonal screws on to the threads at the rear of the OTA so any erecting lens would need to be compatible with this.

I'm wondering what my options are to be able to use the scope terrestrially.

Many thanks for any advice!

Hi Peter,

 

I am going to send you a PM. I, too, have a Towa 80/800 (mine was sold by Paralux with a blue tube, Medas sold its under the name Perl TCC 80 and one could even find it in Italy by Kaewa).
