The Meade Instruments Series 5000 20mm Ultra Wide Angle Eyepiece has an impressive 82° field of view and a long focal length to present users with an immersive observational experience when viewing the night sky.

Its lens is made in a 7-element configuration with fully multi-coated optics, blackened lens edges, and internal surfaces to improve color rendition, contrast, and light transmission, while limiting its loss. A long 17.6mm eye relief allows users to back off from the eyecup for a more comfortable viewing experience with a reduced risk of accidental contact with the eyepiece, which can cause vibrations and interfere with views. The eyepiece features a 2" barrel to be compatible with larger focuser and accessories which allows more light into the eye and creates the long eye relief. A rubberized textured collar ensures a secure grip when handling it, and its twist-up rubber eyecup enables easy viewing with or without eyeglasses. To make the observational experience more comfortable, Meade engineered this eyepiece to be parfocal with the whole Series 5000 line, so little or no refocusing is required when changing eyepieces.

    Series 5000 20mm Ultra Wide Angle Eyepiece (2") is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large and incharge eyepiece Purchased to give my Lx70 R5 refractor more low power options than just what my Q70 32mm can provide.First,the size of this eyepiece is imposing,when i put it in my diagonal it looked like a small football stadium,it's so large but i like it.The image quality is outstanding and the field of view is Sharp all the way across,simply stunning.I made a good choice with this eyepiece it's like,no better than its little brother the 14mm i already have.For the price it can't be beat,but remember this eyepiece is HUGE!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super size performance Outstanding views from this eyepiece,everything i hoped it would be.I already have the 14mm which is a top performer but the 20mm is a whole new game,images are twice as sharp and of course brighter.This is a BIG!!! eyepiece so be prepared,but you will enjoy it my lx70 r5 refractor is complete now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great views For the money, this is an excellent eyepiece. Sharp edge to edge. It might not have quite as much contrast as optics twice its price, but that's a trade-off I can live with. I'm really pleased with this.
