Description

The astrophotographer's friend!


Meade's Series 4000 Plossl 9mm illuminated reticle eyepiece is the most advanced product of its type on the market. It features micrometric x-y positioning controls that greatly facilitate locking onto a guide star. Simply turn the finely-threaded controls and place the reticle's crossline pattern precisely at the desired position in the field.


The reticle pattern is a double crossline with two concentric circles. Sharp, high-power imaging of the four-element, multi-coated, Plossl optical system is complemented by a rubber eyecup (foldable for eyeglass wearers) that shuts out distracting stray light. The upper lens section of the eyepiece rotates on a fine thread for precise diopter adjustment.


This wireless model includes a red LED illuminator with brightness control that's operated by internal batteries (included).

    I'm sure it will come in handy when the ETX 60 I ordered in May finally arrives sometime in August, however, for now, I think I will use it in my 12" Lightbridge like a laser pointer to highlight distant objects like specific stars (I bought one for my mother for Christmas) or Pluto for friends and family who want to take a look.

    The eyepiece does the job to align and calibrate your goto's etc. and will help tracking your objects as you take pictures. However, I was disappointed in the quality of the optics and as it was mentioned in previous reviews the switch on the light is at best of poor construction if you turn it to its mechanical off stop it will make contact and the diode will be on at very low light; this will deplete your batteries. The Lenses had some smudge on it.
    Overall, we use it for alignment / setup of our telescopes, it is precise and save us time.

            Works really well for manual guiding or goto alignment. The led lighting is adjustable and the battery seems to last forever. I accidentally left it on after a night of observing and two days later it was shining away.
