The Meade 1.25" Mirror Star Diagonal diverts the light 90 to the telescope's main tube, permitting a more comfortable viewing position when viewing up into the night sky. A star diagonal is standard equipment with a wide variety of Meade telescope models, including the Advanced Coma-Free LX90, LX200, and LX600 models, but is available here separately as a replacement for any refracting, Mak, or SCT telescope model. Please note a star diagonal cannot be used on a reflector telescope due to the length of the optical path through the diagonal — a reflector will not reach focus when using a diagonal.

When inserted into a refractor or cassegrain telescope, a standard star diagonal will provide an upright image that is reversed left-to-right. If you wish to use this diagonal for distant terrestrial observation with your telescope, it will work (providing an upright image), but keep in mind the image will be mirrored left-to-right.
