I need to replace the LNT module on my older ETX125 (has the side lens). No luck finding one so far, nor can I find the newer module that has the red dot lens on the top. Any suggestions?
my first post to the group.

 

Thank you

Check with eBay seller scopehed. They have listed a RedDot model in the past.

If you're needing to replace the LNT because it's "dead" perhaps all you need is a new battery for the module; a CR2032 I believe (could be wrong tho).

I lost the lens (but can get one) however the very small fibre optic thread on the side broke off, with out that the whole unit is pooched. I could likely use a later module but can’t find that either.

Without the lens and the optic cable being broke, the only feature lost is the red dot scope. As far as I know the LNT part still functions as it should. Seems there's not a lot of information out on the LNT. Think I also read that the LNT module is not really needed. I suggest a Title Only search and see what comes up.

Thank you. I will set it up and look for a finder scope to add to the scope.
