Meade 607010 overview

  • 1Description

The Meade Series 4000 Plossl Eyepiece & Filter Set gives you three anti-reflection fully multi-coated eyepieces with large 2" barrels for a range of magnifications. Each eyepiece has a textured collar for safe handling, standard 2" filter threads, and fold-down eyecups. A 2x Barlow lens doubles the magnification potential of the eyepieces, adding even more versatility.

A 90°-star diagonal is included for comfortable viewing with catadioptric or refractor-style OTAs that are aimed at or near the zenith, as are slip-fit and screw-on visual back adapters to allow the use of the kit components in most styles of focusing systems. A 1.25" reducer adapter is provided to enable you to use the smaller, more popular-sized eyepieces and accessories with 2" focusers, diagonals, and Barlows.

Complementing the eyepieces are five colored filters for planetary and lunar viewing. These are the most common and useful that Meade make, including an ND96 Moon filter. The filter housings are made of anodized aluminum and the filters themselves are made of optical glass.

To safely carry and store the eyepieces, Barlow, diagonal, and filters is a hard aluminum case. 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 eyepieces.

  • 2" diameter barrel
  • Fully anti-reflection coated
  • Fold-down rubber eyecups
  • Textured rubber collar for safe handling
  • Apparent angle of view: 56° (26mm & 32mm), 50° (40mm)
  • 26mm focal length produces the highest (but still relatively low) magnification
  • 32mm focal length strikes a balance between power and field of view
  • 40mm focal length yields the lowest power with the longest eye relief and widest field of view
  • Fits most 2" eyepieces and accessories
  • Stackable to create color filter combinations for improved performance
  • Anodized aluminum frame is lightweight and scratch-resistant
  • Optical glass filter is colored during production, for greater filter performance and longevity
#12 Deep Yellow:
  • 74% transmission
  • Use for areas of Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars
  • Enhanced lunar contrast on scopes smaller than 6" aperture
#25 Red:
  • 14% transmission
  • Blocks the transmission of blue and green wavelengths
  • Use to sharply define the contrast between cloud formations and the surface features on Jupiter
  • Improves the definition of the Martian polar ice caps and maria
  • Reduces glare and highlights in the Venusian atmosphere
  • Recommended for OTAs of 8" aperture or more
#56 Light Green:
  • 53% transmission
  • Use to view Martian polar ice caps, and its yellow tinted dust storms
  • Increases contrast of the red and blue regions in Jupiter's atmosphere and cloud belts
  • Can be used for lunar observing
#80A Blue:
  • 30% transmission
  • Enhances the contrast in Jupiter's cloud belts, and details in the Great Red Spot
  • Highlights detail in Saturn's belts and polar features
  • Can be used for lunar viewing
  • Useful for splitting Antares
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 three eyepieces perform like six
  • Doubles the power without significantly affecting the eye relief, so using short focal length/high magnification eyepieces is easier
  • Fully multi-coated optics
  • 2" slip-fit focuser adapter allows eyepieces and accessories to be used on standard focuser drawtubes
  • Screw-on visual back adapter for use on catadioptric OTAs like Schmidt-Cassegrains
  • 90°-star diagonal with 2" snout and holder, places head in comfortable viewing position when catadioptric or refractor-style OTAs are aimed at or near the zenith
  • 1.25" eyepiece adapter allows the use of smaller, more common, eyepieces and accessories to be used in the diagonal, Barlow, or drawtubes
  • 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

    Meade 607010 reviews

    Series 4000 Plossl Eyepiece & Filter Set (2") is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from COMPARISON OF 2 AND 1.25 LENS *LENSES ARE BIG IN SIZE* As we know that the light gathering ability of the 2-inch lens is much much greater than 1.25-inch lens, let me ensure you this gives you a much larger detail on the Jupiter belts, Saturn rings and its cloud belts. Flares can be easily seen in the Orion Nebula (M-42) with the use of these lenses. I have also seen a prototype stars, Eskimo nebula and deep sky globular clusters. You need to stay in the dark. I have compared two lenses :- Left side has 2 inches barrel size Right sides has 1.25 inches barrel size. Please check this image before buying. B&H ensures safe and fast packing with good customer service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye relief for telescope viewing When viewing through a telescope the 2 eyepieces give good relief as compared to the 1.25 eyepieces.
