Hi! Can I use Meade HD-60 6.5mm eyepiece with this tube (with 2"-1.25" adapter)? I want to observe planets in detail, will produced image quality be good for this purpose? Is it possible to observe deep sky objects with this tube? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, you can use this eyepiece with Levenhuk Ra R72 ED Doublet OTA. This optical tube is more suitable for planetary observations.
