Meade 607001 overview

  • 1Description

The Meade Series 4000 1.25" Plossl Eyepiece & Filter Set gives you five anti-reflection multicoated eyepieces with focal lengths from 6mm to 32mm for a wide range of magnifications. Each eyepiece has standard filter threads and fold-down eyecups. A 2x Barlow lens doubles the magnification potential of the eyepieces adding even more versatility.

Complementing the eyepieces are six colored filters for planetary and lunar viewing. These are the most common and useful that Meade makes. The set also includes an ND96 Moon filter. The filter housings are anodized aluminum and the filters themselves are optical glass.

To safely carry and store the eyepieces, the Barlow lens, and the filters, a hard aluminum case is included. The case has reinforced edges and corners with a sturdy hinged handle and dual lockable draw latches. The interior has egg-crate foam on the lid, and custom-cut foam for all the set components. There are also three pre-cut spaces for user-supplied eyepiece.

Eyepieces
  • 1.25" diameter barrel
  • Fully anti-reflection coated
  • Fold-down rubber eyecups
  • 52° apparent field of view
  • Four-element lens configuration
  • 6mm focal length produces the highest magnification in the set - ideal for lunar and planetary viewing
  • 9mm focal length offers a comfortable combination of power, field of view, and longer eye relief
  • 13mm focal length produces a moderate magnification with a wider field of view and longer eye relief than short focal length eyepieces
  • 18mm focal length yields a lower magnification than the 13mm model, but higher than the much longer 32mm
  • 32mm focal length offers the lowest power, widest field of view, and longest eye relief
Filters
General:
  • Fits most 1.25" eyepieces and accessories

Barlow Lens
  • 2x magnification effectively doubles the power of any eyepiece put in it
  • Makes the set of five eyepieces perform like ten
  • Doubles the power without significantly affecting the eye relief, so using short focal length/high magnification eyepieces is easier

  • Sturdy hinged handle
  • Egg-crate foam lid insert

    Meade 607001 reviews

    Series 4000 Plossl Eyepiece & Filter Set (1.25") is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This renewed my excitement using my telescope! This set of eyepieces makes great sense. Starting with the 26mm that comes with the telescope, it is fairly easy to find an object in the sky. Using this set, replace the 26 with the first eyepiece-18mm. This brings the object closer, yet still in view. It is simple to make fine adjustments to center the object. From there, the process is the same-change to the next eyepiece at 13 mm and repeat. The next two are 9mm, then 6 mm. At 6 mm, craters, plains and ridges can be identified on the moon! At 9 and 6 mm, a moon or ND filter should be used because the image is so bright and clear, it's almost like being at the beach with no sunglasses on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Series 4000 Meade Purcghase Love this set. The plossls are much better than the 2 factory eyepieces that came with my telescope. The filters and barlow are a real plus as well. Finally, the carrying case is excellent & sturdy and has extra room for all my other telescope paraphernalia.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Benchmark of Optics! If you are just getting into the hobby, acquire a nice set of eyepieces that will be your benchmark of observing for years to come regardless of which telescope you use. Meade optics are superior compared with the average amateur-astronomy company and the 4000 line of eyepieces offer crisp views with their multi-coated, anti-reflective optics. A must buy for all star-gazers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't pass up this deal. This kit is very nice. Plain and simple. The eyepieces are better than the ones that came with my telescope. I'm resolving more contrast and details of observed objects. The filters are very good quality and are very handy to bring out more contrast and detail yet. And the carrying case is very good quality as well.
