Product Highlights
  • 51° Apparent Field of View
  • 13mm Eye Relief

A world standard in telescope oculars, Meade Series 4000 Eyepieces yield wide viewing fields consistent with pinpoint edge-of-field sharpness, long eye relief, low astigmatism, low spherical aberration, and low off-axis coloration.  With 7-layer multicoatings and edge-blackened optics, the sophisticated 4-element 20mm Super Plössl permits a level of optical performance generally impossible with eyepieces of fewer elements.  As a member of the older 4000 series, it represents an exceptional value in a longer focal length general use eyepiece.

The Series 4000 20mm eyepiece includes a soft rubber eyecup, custom fitted to the eyepiece with a bayonet mount.  The eyecup folds down for eyeglass wearers, shielding eyeglasses from coming into contact with the metal eyepiece housing.  A rubber grip is provided.

The Meade 20mm Super Plössl eyepiece is parfocal with the 6.4mm, 9.7mm, 12.4mm, 15mm, & 26mm Series 4000 Plössls; it can be exchanged with any with practically no refocusing necessary.

        Comments about Meade Series 4000 Super Plossl 20mm Eyepiece (1.25"):

        I'm no pro and bought the telescope for fun and to educate my grand kids. The eyepiece that came with the unit worked great, but had very little magnification. The 20 and 40mm are great for getting a lot closer. They are well packaged in their own thick plastic tubes to protect them.

                I was hesitant about buying this eyepiece for my F4.9 Dob but I am so glad I ordered it. This eyepiece has no noticeable coma around the edges and the clarity is exceptional. I would highly recommend this eyepiece to anyone wanting to add a good quality Plossl to their collection.

                    A nice bonus offered free with my new Celestron 127 Telescope. An eyepiece like this should be standard instead of the so-so Celestron 27mm eyepiece that came with my scope.

                        I use this with my 6" Meade ETX-LS telescope - It works great!
                        You need a few eyepieces to get a range of magnifications though!
