Product Highlights
  • 50° Apparent Field of View
  • 21mm 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 56mm Super Plössl permits a level of optical performance generally impossible with eyepieces of fewer elements.

If you have a 2" focuser (or visual back) and desire viewing wide star fields without breaking the bank, this is an awesome choice; your exit pupil cannot be larger with f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrains.  Let your vision become adapted to the darkness and try your hand at seeing a wide nebula remnant; you might be pleasantly surprised.

The Series 4000 56mm eyepiece includes a soft rubber eyeguard, custom fitted to the eyepiece with a bayonet mount.  The eyeguard folds down for eyeglass wearers, shielding eyeglasses from coming into contact with the metal eyepiece housing.  A rubber grip is provided.

The Meade 56mm Super Plössl eyepiece is only to be used with a 2" diagonal or visual back.
