There are many sources for telescope eyepieces on the internet. Just Google ".965" telescope eyepieces", and choose one.

SOURCE: eyepiece for telescope

You may be able to find these for sale on:

www.astromart.com

However-- it is very doubtful if your scope can exceed 100 power without the image degrading. I normally use 100-150 power MAXIMUM in my 8" LX90 ---usually I use 50-100 power.

Can you remove the eyepiece from the telescope--- if you can -- GOOD, throw it away and buy a new one on-line at these web sites--

Eyepieces come in 3 different barrel sizes-- .965, 1.25, 2 inch

Yours is probably either a .965 or 1.25 inch.

Take the scope oput during the day tiome. DO NOT opoint it at the sun. Point it at a distant object like a telephone polem or a building.

Look through the eyepiece with the largest NUMBER written on it-- and or the largest glass surface.

Turn the knob until the object comes into focus.

I need to purchase the meade polaris model # 60az-d eye pieces that you use to look through the telescope.


You need to purchase .965 diameter eyepieces. 700mm ( focal length of scope)/ eyepiece focal length=magnification. Maximum power of a 60mm scope is about 225x (under perfect conditions)
I would get a 25mm 700/25=28x for low power see link below
http://cgi.ebay.com/Meade-MA25-25mm-965-telescope-eyepiece-NEW-/230542978572?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35ad6eae0c
and then for higher power 700/8=87.5x
http://cgi.ebay.com/Astro-Optics-8mm-Deluxe-965-Telescope-Eyepiece-/230543763551?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35ad7aa85f
There are not many options with .965 eyepieces I would get a .965 to 1.25 adapter or .965 to 1.25 hybrid diagonal. That way you have more options on better eyepieces and the 1.25 eyepieces can be used for better telescopes in the future.

Replace Eyepiece on Saturn F-900 Model 60EQ


You need an eyepiece This scope uses .965in eyepieces. you can find them on Ebay. Maximum magnification is 100x NOT 420x. These scopes have inferior optics and terrible mounts. Don't spend much on this scope. Buy a 20mm (35x magnification) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Astro-Optics-20mm-965-Telescope-Eyepiece-NEW-/230688144635?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b615bcfb or a 15mm (45x magnification) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Astro-Optics-20mm-965-Telescope-Eyepiece-NEW-/230688144635?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b615bcfb on Ebay If you are interested in astronomy, you need to spend some money on a good scope.
