    Meopta S2 82 HD stay on case

    My answer is late... For my Meopta, I use a SOC Kite for Swaro ATS 80. The main advantage is that the focuser turns freely. And I can use finger and thumb because there is a "hole" under the SOC. I believe that the genuine model Meopta (or Swaro !) hampers little the focusing wheel.

    Meopta bayonet

    Hello everyone. I envisage the purchase of a Meopta S2 82mm. The available eyepieces are both zooms 30x60 and 20x70. Perhaps one day I would want to use a fixed eyepiece... Does anybody know if the Meopta bayonet is compatible with another brand ? Thanks for your advices !
