Was digging through my box of accessories and found this. Anybody know what it’s for?. I have a Meade lx200gps so I assume it has to do with that.

I have a device that I use in conjunction with a solar filter so I can scan the sun's surface without moving the scope. It has the exact piece in it, too. It goes in the eyepiece holder, and has a socket for eyepiece on other side. Adds about 1.5" to focus.

Odd that in the key the descriptions only go to K?? 🤦‍♂️🤔 still trying to figure out why I had it. Any chance the name of the part is on the next page?

They list the description of "L" after "D" as both can be used for the same thread/fitment.
