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
  • Stackable to create color filter colors to improve performance
  • Anodized aluminum frame is lightweight and scratch-resistant
  • Optical glass filter is colored during production, for greater filter performance and longevity
#8 Light Yellow:
  • 83% transmission
  • Use for areas of Jupiter and Mars
  • Enhanced resolution of Uranus and Neptune with 10"+ aperture scopes
  • Enhanced lunar filters on scopes less than 8" aperture
#12 Dark Yellow:
  • 74% transmission
  • Use for areas of Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars
  • Enhanced lunar contrast on scopes smaller than 6" aperture
#23A Light Red:
  • 25% transmission
  • Use for Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars
  • Enhanced contrast of Mercury against blue sky/twilight during daytime observation
#38A Dark Blue:
  • 17% transmission
  • Use for areas of Jupiter; Martian polar regions
  • Use with scopes of 8"+ aperture
#58 Green:
  • 24% transmission
  • Use for Jupiter, Saturn, Martian polar regions on scopes over 8" diameter
#80A Light Blue:
  • 30% transmission
  • Most popular for Jupiter and Saturn
  • Enhances contrast on lunar surface
Neutral Density ND96:
  • 0.9 density
  • 13% transmission
  • Neutral color transmits evenly across the entire visible spectrum for accurate color transmission
  • Ideal for viewing the moon (especially during half to full phases) or for splitting double stars

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
  • Fully multi-coated optics

Case

  • Aluminum with reinforced corners and edges
  • Dual locking draw latches, two keys included
  • Sturdy hinged handle
  • Egg-crate foam lid insert
  • Custom-cut foam for each eyepiece and the Barlow lens
  • Three cut-outs for additional user-supplied eyepieces
  • Large section to stack filter cases
  • Lid-stop keeps lid in 90° open position
  • Two sets of four foot-pads
