The Meade Instruments Series 5000 8.8mm Ultra Wide Angle Eyepiece has an impressive 82° field of view and comfortable eye relief, despite its relatively short focal length, to present users with a comfortable and immersive high-magnification observational experience.

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. The long 15mm eye relief gives users room 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 standard 1.25" barrel that is compatible with the most popular size of focusers and accessories. 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 8.8mm Ultra Wide Angle Eyepiece (1.25") is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very impressive quality This eyepiece is solid, but I don't feel that it is overly large. The 82 degree view is very nice to use. My only complaint is that when you have the eye cup raised, it reveals a layer of grease on the lower eyepiece assembly, which is easy to get on your hands, etc.
