Description

All Series 4000 eyepieces include a soft rubber eyeguard, custom fitted to each eyepiece with a bayonet mount. The eyeguards fold down for eyeglass wearers, and in fact the folded eyeguard shields eyeglasses from coming into contact with the metal eyepiece housings. Rubber grips are provided on all but the three shortest focal length Super Plössl eyepieces.

 

Super Plössls: Designed to utilize the very latest in optical glass types, Meade 4-element Super Plössls are excellent general-purpose eyepieces. For observing hairline lunar and planetary detail, splitting close double stars, or for resolving faint nebulosity in deep-space, Meade Super Plössls optimize the performance of any telescope type, whether f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain, f/16 refractor, or f/4 reflector.

    I purchased this on recommendations that a 32mm eyepiece was wonderful for seeing more of the sky. For this, it is wonderful, and I use it as my primary when searching for objects. It is easy to see through, has good eye relief, but doesn't resolve all the stars in the view. After viewing other eyepieces at a star party, granted more expensive ones, I think I would save up for something better. However, it is a good piece for the price if budget is a concern. It is far better than what came with my Orion scope.

      Comments about Meade Series 4000 Super Plossl Telescope Eyepieces:

      The 20mm Meade 4000 Super Plossl is the best Plossl eyepiece I've ever used in short tube fast reflectors. The 20mm version hits the sweet spot for brightness, contrast and field of view. I like it better than the 26mm, 12.4 and 9.7mm versions.

          I got my 56mm mead eyepiece. and finally have the full set got it in 3 days of notification. Meade maybe a bit slow at getting things out but the Eyepiece is great very nice wide field of view 1.04 actual field of view with my 12 inch LX200 with a 54x mag. Great eyepiece for large clusters and galaxies. in Leo this eyepiece will give a great show of M66 M65. all in one view. and there are a few triple galaxy as well. definitely a great eyepiece in its class.

              Bought the Celestron 130 EQ. Would highly recommend dropping the 10mm & 20mm EP's and get some of these. I bought the 32mm and liked IR so much I bought the 20mm as well. Very sturdy feeling in your hand and have good eye relief. Highly recommend getting these.

              Customer Q & A

              1 - 5 of 11
                  1   2      

              Q1: I am an lucky owner of an Meade LX200 Telescope. This includes the Meade Super Plossl 26 mm Multicoated eyepiece. What are the differences of other eyepieces? Is a bigger one better and if yes why? I am very new to astronomy but it has my interest.

              A: Eyepieces are defined by the millimeter the bigger the millimeter the smaller the magnification. The smaller the millimeter the greater the magnification. It is a good idea to get a wide range. To figure out the magnification you will be using simply divide the focal length of the telescope by the millimeter of the eyepiece and the number that you get is how many times the naked eye that you will be seeing with.

              Q2: I own a Meade 114EQ telescope will the Super Plossl 40mm Eyepiece work with my telescope and If so is there a guide I can follow for future reference?

              A: As long as the eyepiece is a 1.25' it will work just fine. There really is no type of guide to reference. Just follow a simple rule of thumb when trying to think of what eyepiece to get "The larger the millimeter of the eyepiece the smaller the magnification"

              Q3: How many lenses are there in this eyepiece?

              A: This eyepiece has 4 lens elements.

              Q4: We own a Meade NG 70 telescope for beginners. We are not too happy with the eyepieces that come with that. Looking for ones with a better magnification. Can you please recommend ones that are ideal?

              A: The Meade 6.4mm eyepiece would work quite well, and provide you with much more magnification.  The 9.7mm would also be a good choice, and give you a wider field of view.

              Q5: What is the lowest priced 1.25" eyepiece (say 40mm) with crosshairs.

              A: The lowest-priced telescope eyepiece with reticle is the Celestron 10mm Plossl Reticle Eyepiece 1-1/4 inch. Here's the URL; just paste it into your browser's address window: http://telescopes.com/products/celestron-10mm-plossl-reticle-eyepiece-1-14-6054.html. The page includes an illustration.
