    Great crispness on Jupiter, start looks nice and sharp; double stars are not easily split; handles nice, eye relief is great; field of view is very nice too. I look forward to more use with this.

    Comments about Meade Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle Telescope Eyepieces:

    This review is for the 14 mm eyepiece. This is the first time I have had a wide field eyepiece and it was an impressive improvement over the conventional eyepieces that I have used. I can't compare it to the more expensive wide-fields since I am not going to invest $300 to $500 for same, but for the price, this eyepiece is great. I look forward to receiving two more that I have ordered

      Comments about Meade Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle Telescope Eyepieces:

      I purchased the 14mm 5000 ultra wide angle lens, hands down the best
      1.25 lens I have ever looked through.
      The price is amazing after using the lens I could not believe
      Thats all I paid for it .
      All I can say if there is anyone new to using telescopes or
      have been using them for a long time,if you are looking for
      Outstanding telescope optics but cant afford televue prices
      Meade is the only way to go.........

          The eyepiece arrived 3 days after ordering. It was packaged well and arrived exactly when they said it would. I look forward to ordering more items from Telescopes.com.

          I used the eyepiece the other night and it was very good. Good flat field, edge to edge, performed well. I was quite surpised at its performance, a portal to space!

              Comments about Meade Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle Telescope Eyepieces:

              The Ultra wide's from Meade are a great value. I especialy love my older 6.7 mm. Their 82 degree apparent field of view is amazing, i'm sure they are not on par with the naglers, but only to the optics perfectionist. I'm using the Meade with my Sky-Watcher Pro 120ed, and i have to say- on a budget of under $2000, the views are within 90 percent of expensive-scope-expensive eyepiece combination that runs in the $4500-6500. Especialy amazing value for terrestrial viewing, you will not want to go back to low apparent field of view ever again, nothing compares to wide field views and big apperture (3D like picture).

              Comments about Meade Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle Telescope Eyepieces:

              I got this 4.7 mm Ultra Wide lens after I had purchased a Super Wide Meade 5000 series 24 mm lens. That one was superb with clear crisp images. The 4.7 mm gives high magnification with my 10" Dob, with 1250 mm focal length. Unfortunately, for stars, the view was not as well defined, clear or bright enough to have gained anything by using this lens. However, viewing the moon, with its higher intensity, did give a good image. One could almost see the individual boulders on the surface.
              Though the lens is well made, the cover kept falling off as it was too loose.
              Value wise, the lens is worth the money but the 4.7 mm is at the upper end of magnification and so suffers from critical focusing and short depth of field. The aperture, 82 degrees, was great.

                This eyepiece is super high power yet it yields sharp images at a fair cost.

                Customer Q & A

                Q1: I have a Meade DS-2080AT-LNT. What would work better for me, the Meade Series 5000 14mm Ultrawide with a Meade 2x Ultra TX TeleXtender or the Meade Series 5000 6.7mm Ultrawide? I am looking to get the best combination of magnification and image quality.

                A: The Meade Series 5000 6.7mm is going to provide the more magnification than a 14mm with a 2x teleXtender. We recommend using a 6.7mm or 5mm eyepiece to reach your telescope's maximum magnification while keeping the image crisp and defined.

                Q2: How long is the eye-relief on the 6.7mm eyepiece?

                A: The 6.7mm Meade Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle Telescope Eyepiece has 14.8mm of eye relief.
