Bill,
3-5. The astrometric eyepiece IMHO is the one to get of the three. For it to plug into the LX90 you'll need the APM - accessory port module.

Michael, A query here just to make sure I understand properly: I have seen the APM advertised, but put that to the bottom of my list as there are two auxilliary ports on the LX90, will neither of those work with the astrometric eyepiece? If not, do you know what their function is?
Many thanks,
Bill H.


Good question Bill. To be honest, I'm not 100% sure of the answer. However, from what I understand, corded reticle eyepieces have a head similar to that on a pair of headphones, or smaller. i.e. they don't have a head that will fit in the AUX port. That's why you need the APM.
A goup well worth joining is the LX90 yahoo group. You'll need to register though to become a member but it's a fairly simple process. I used to follow it alot more closely than I do now. I just dopn't have the time lately. however, they are a fab source of info.
However, Dave does bring up an interesting point.

these should still work with your scope even if they are branded for the more expensive model. all in all i think a good idea.
