I wanted to purchase a 1.25” to 2” eyepiece adapter. I was going to purchase Meade version but then noticed a similar one by Orion Telescopes. They also had a more expensive version that was better centered called the Precision Centering Adapter. I decided to order that one.
I also decided to get a collimator. Again, I was thinking of going with the Meade model especially since it has an adapter too. But, again I went with a Orion version called LaserMate Deluxe II Telescope Laser Collimator.
Finally, I decided to get a case to hold all these accessories. The carrying case for the ETX had spots for many things but figured another one would be nice to have. I went with a Orion Large Deluxe Accessory Case.
In the future, I will get a light shroud and a cover to leave the telescope out at night to cool down.
I also wanted some option to store the telescope. Due to its size, I figured a case would be too expensive assuming anyone even made one. But, then I found forum post that mentioned using a Dewalt tool case. I got one of those and will now be able to store it safely and without worry about dust.
