    The Meade #546 AC Adapter is a convenient and reliable product to use with your Meade ETX70 Telescope. Simply snap the battery attachment in place, and then plug the adapter into an outlet, and you are ready for an entire night of star-gazing. And no need to worry about batteries going dead while you are in the middle of viewing. The 25-foot cord is handy to reach outlets or to plug into an extension cord for telescope placement in a convenient place. Even without an extention cord, the 25-foot reach of the adapter cord is enough to place into a window to reach indoor outlets.

    Batteries will still be needed for viewing from locations without electrical outlets, but for viewing in one's yard or even a camp-site with an electric supply, this adapter saves money and trouble for extended periods of viewing. Anywhere there's a power source with an outlet will do. Add a cigarette-lighter adapter, and your area of entended use increases to just about anywhere.

    It's a good feeling to know that one will not have their power supply cut-off due to drained batteries. This adapter is great. It really completes the telescope's functionality.

                Customer Q & A

                5 Questions About This Product
                Q: "I have a Meade DS-2130AT #70131 telescope, and is the Meade AC power adapter #546 the correct adpter for this scope?"
                A: absolutely, the #546 is designed to work with the DS2000 series of scopes
                Q: "Is this cord compatible with the Meade ETX-70?"
                A: Yes the ETX-70 is one of the scopes they designed this for.
                Q: "Does Meade or ETC, make a accessory to enable to use Meade#546 adapter via cig-lighter, or in my case 12-volt plug on my 4-Wheeler to supply power to my scope for portability. Thank-You for your time in reviewing and hopefully responding to my question. M"
                A: Yes, the Meade #607 DC Power Cord w/Cigarette Lighter Adapter will let you power your Meade scope from the cigarette lighter socket in your car or on your 4-wheeler. Here's the URL; just paste it into your browser's address window: http://www.telescopes.com/products/meade-607-dc-power-cord-wcigarette-lighter-adapter-6342.html.
                Q: "Hi, I have the Bushnell Northstar 1550mm x 127mm 5" Maksutov Cassegrain Telescope, And i wanted to buy an AC cord for my scope so i dont have to buy batteries anymore. Is the "Meade #546 AC Adapter" the right cord to purchase for my scope, or is there"
                A: Unfortunately, the Meade #546 AC Adapter for ETX70/ETX80/DS-2000/NG Series will not work with your Bushnell North Star telescope. The Bushnell telescope is powered by a 9-Volt battery; there is no provision for an outside power source.
                Q: "I have to use batteries with this adapter or I just plug it with the battery piece?"
                A: It is not necessary to use batteries with the Meade #546 AC Adapter.
