I thought about putting this in the eyepieces forum, but I think it might fit here better.
I acquired the 50mm spotting scope from another member's LX200. Its not like the spotters I have seen online when googling "LX200;" there is no "Meade" label on the dew shield, leading me to believe it is quite a bit older. It is a fine little scope, with a really nice helical focuser. Nice prism diagonal, and a functional EP with crosshairs that has "8x50" stamped on it.
I have it attached to a much larger scope, and I'd like to explore the possibility of using additional 0.965" EPs with this little spotter to make it into something else; would be awesome to have a small selection of 0.965" EPs to use for wide field viewing with the 50mm spotter, while its attached to its larger brother doing high mag/narrow FOV work.
Has anyone adapted this scope for such use? I'd like to know its focal length so I can look into EPs that give me magnification in particular ranges.
