The Meade Series 4000 2" Plossl Eyepiece & Filter Set gives you three large, anti-reflection, fully multicoated eyepieces with focal lengths from 26mm to 40mm for a range of magnifications. Each eyepiece has a textured collar for safe handling, standard filter threads, and fold-down eyecups. A 2x Barlow lens doubles the magnification potential of the eyepieces adding even more versatility. It offers comfortable viewing with catadioptric or refractor-style OTAs that are aimed at or near the zenith is a 90° star diagonal. Finally, a 1.25" adapter is included to enable you to use the more popular size eyepieces and adapters with 2" focusers and eyepieces.

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 anodized aluminum and the filters themselves are 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 is also three pre-cut spaces for user-supplied eyepiece.
