Meade 07066 overview

  • 1Description

The Meade Instruments Series 4000 MA 12mm Wireless Illuminated Reticle Eyepiece is ideal for use with an off-axis guider to more accurately detect and correct tracking errors during long-exposure astrophotography sessions.

It is outfitted with an illuminated double crosshair reticle that presents a clearly-defined center aiming box that allows users to center a guide star and closely monitor its location for drift. The reticle is illuminated by an integrated red LED that is easy to see while preserving night-adjusted vision, with a rheostat to set the appropriate brightness for the ambient light or the user's preference. Unlike wired models that suffered from cord-wrap and snagging, this eyepiece is a standalone unit that runs on two included LR44 batteries to power the LED. With a 12mm focal length that produces moderate magnifications on most OTAs and anti-reflection fully coated optics to improve the view, the eyepiece also features a 3-element lens design, a comfortable 16mm eye relief, and a fold-down rubber eyecup for easy use with or without eyewear.

    Meade 07066 reviews

    Series 4000 MA 12mm Wireless Illuminated Reticle Eyepiece (1.25") is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the Job A good aid in precisely centering objects in the eyepiece during alignment procedures. Go To functions are more accurate after use. Handy for better alignment of finder scope and OTA as well. Wireless is a good thing, one less wire to deal with. Solid construction and the illumination control has a nice positive feel to it. Optical quality is on par with others in this price range. The only issue would be flaring around the reticle lines regardless of illumination power, worse at high power but never really go away. Not too much of a problem until you try to center something very dim. All in all, a good product for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for aligning a scope. This really helps with aligning my scope to guide stars.� That is once I figured out out to focus the reticle pattern.� Mine were out of focus for my eyes at least.� The process is simple, just point the scope at a white object like a wall and then turn the ring that the rubber cup attaches to till the reticle lines come into focus.� Only needs to be done once. The reticles dim nicely and are easily visible at night. I wouldn't use it for viewing but for aiming and aligning it is perfect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome This is very light, and easy to operate. It really helps me center the star in the EP when doing the alignment for the GT mount. One star deducted because I couldn't find a way to adjust the reticle to be as sharp as I want it to be, but this doesn't effect the function. Also, the cap seems to be missing from the box I got.
