Meade 07199-2 overview

  • 1Description

The Meade Instruments Series 4000 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece eliminates the need to change eyepieces so you can spend more time viewing the night sky instead of fumbling in the dark when you want higher or lower magnifications.

Sporting a wide zoom range the eyepiece allows you to easily and quickly change magnifications — making this an ideal instrument for wide-field viewing or star-hopping navigation with the ability to simply turn the textured collar and increase the magnification to the perfect power. Its 6-element/4-group lens configuration helps to maintain collimation during magnification transitions, and anti-reflection multi-coatings limit light loss while boosting color rendition and contrast.

At the long 24mm focal length, the eyepiece boasts a wide 60° angle of view and impressive 18mm eye relief, making it easy to look through and immerse yourself in the view. Dialing the eyepiece up to the 8mm focal length maximizes the magnification while still maintaining a generous 40° angle of view with a comfortable 15mm eye relief. For repeatability and ease-of-use, the outside of the housing has an etched focal length scale and a textured rubberized collar for easier handling. The eyepiece is outfitted with a standard 1.25" barrel to make it compatible with the most common size of focuser drawtubes and accessories, and a fold-down rubber eyecup for comfortable use with or without eyeglasses.

    Meade 07199-2 reviews

    Series 4000 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece (1.25") is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Untold feature of Meade zoom The eyepiece does the job well between 12-24mm. Below 12 mm, the view gets pretty dim and the focus is not sharp enough to give you satifactory results. Zoom ring is a bit stiff to rotate. The best and untold-by-anyone thing about this eyepiece is that it has a thread beneath the rubber eyecup that can directly fit to your T-ring if you are interested in astrophotography. Fitted to Vello T mount to Sony E Mount adapter just when I was thinking about buying an eyepiece projection adapter. It was a eureka moment for me as I discovered it accidentally !

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Qestionable? Use this with Celestron C90 Mak scope & moon filter. Looking at the eyepiece lense, there are visible imperfections in the glass itself, odd. The focus is very rough and tight.Otherwise the device seems to be well constructed. May have just got a bum one. Will return and try another as I was satisfied with the view the device provided both at 24mm & 8mm.Used with the Celestron moon filter. When viewing the moon, removed the moon filter at higher magnification due to lack of light the C90 can let in but the results were good after removing the filter. I'll try another, it's worth not carrying multiple eye pieces.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good optics and convenient Quality was better than I expected for a zoom eyepiece. I was hard pressed to find any difference in optical clarity between this eyepiece and a fixed focal length (6mm) eyepiece. Granted the 6mm I compared it with was not an expensive one. The only nitpick was that the zoom ring was a little tight to turn relatively speaking. I have to really tighten the 1.25 slot screws or the whole thing would turn instead of the zoom. Size wise it was bigger than a non-zoom eyepiece but it's expected for more optics.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent, In-Expensive Zoom for Casual Viewing Considering the low retail cost of this lense, I was pleasantly surprised by just how well it worked. Quite smooth and easy to make magnification changes. For casual viewing, I don't believe the Pentax is any better, and it costs about five-times more!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meade Series 4000 zoom eyepiece Along with my new 14" Dobsonian, I purchased this eyepiece! Was worried about the quality at such a good price. I am amazed by the quality and sharpness of this eyepiece! I have other $500 eyepieces, but this is almost as good as them! This is now my main go-to eyepiece! In my fast 14" Dob, I pushed the terminator on the moon from 50x up to 410x, and it was very sharp and clean! The Orion Nebula wen from wide field, to a clear view of just the Tripezeum! Well worth to money!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good economical zoom lens! I bought this zoom to hopefully compliment the terrestrial viewing with my TV-85. Overall, and for the price, this zoom lens is very adequate, and I find its the one, single eye piece I use the most for my casual daytime observing. My fear when I bought it on-line was that it wouldn't be very smooth, but must say it's been a non-issue since the first day I installed it. I use it with a TV 45 degree prism diagonal, so there are several optical compromises that are involved, but I have no issues with the lens itself. About the only thing that I can bring up, and I also knew this going-in, was that I wish the lens had another 5-10mm's of eye relief, and maybe a little wider field of view! A real decent, inexpensive zoom lens.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good...dull at 8mm Seems well made. Clear as my fixed at 24. Little dull at 8 but still adds value. Seems well made. Easy to use. Does require refocus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I bought the Meade Zoom lens after hearing people talk about it on the online Astronomy group that I'm a member of. I also read an article in S&T magazine where they compared all the Zoom lenses and Meades came out on top. My Meade Zoom is usually the only EP I use on most nights. It is equal to my Meade 4000 EP's in every respect so why Mumble and Fumble around in the pitch darkness trying to change EP's? I took the time to write this review after seeing a negative review on here..I realize that someone could of gotten a bad unit but from all my experience most people are highly pleased, Including myself.. I do believe that of all the purchases I've made, Moon filter, UHC filter,Barlows, various Meade4000 EP's,Starmaps, Books, Headlamps etc.... The purchase of the Meade 8-24 Zoom was by far the best purchase I've made...(BTW, I view through a Starfinder 8 inch Dob from a heavily light polluted area) Anyway I just wanted to put in my two cents on the matter and I encourage you to google skyatnightmagazine meade-series-4000-zoom-eyepiece review and be the judge yourself..I give it a Solid A. If you get it and don't like it you can always send it back but I'll bet you keep it, David Amonett
