Product Highlights
  • 1.25" Diameter Barrel
  • 30mm Eye Relief
  • 52° AFOV

The 1.25" diameter barrel Meade Series 4000 Super Plossl Eyepiece yields a wide consistent viewing field with edge-of-field sharpness and long eye relief - and it does so while boasting extremely low astigmatism, spherical aberration, and off-axis color. Incorporating 7-layer multicoatings and edge-blackened optics for optimum image contrast, this sophisticated 4-element ocular delivers an excellent level of optical performance.

Like all Series 4000 eyepieces, this 40mm Super Plossl includes a soft rubber eyeguard with a bayonet mount. The eyeguard folds down and it shields eyeglasses from coming into contact with the metal housings.

        A nice solid feel without being to heavy. Well packaged in it's own unique case. Nice clear optic's as well as a very good field of view. Great for initial alignment and for observing objects that are large and close like the Moon or the Sun.

            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.
