Meade 9 mm Illuminated Reticle Plossl 1.25" Eyepiece - Wireless

The Meade 9 mm Illuminated Reticle Plossl 1.25" Eyepiece Wireless is a special-purpose eyepiece incorporating a reticle with etched crossline patterns, internally red-illuminated so that the lines are clearly visible against a dark sky. All eyepieces have 1.25" O.D. barrels which will fit into a standard 1.25" holder. The sharp, high-power imaging of the 4-element, multi-coated Plossl optical system is complemented by a rubber eyecup (foldable for eyeglass wearers) that shuts out distracting stray light from the observer's eye. This eyepiece has a 9 mm focal length. This Illuminated Reticle Plossl 1.25" Eyepiece is ideal for use with an Off-Axis Guider.

The most advanced commercially-available illuminated reticle eyepiece, this Series 4000 Illuminated Reticle Plossl 9 mm model includes micrometric x-y positioning controls which greatly facilitate locking onto the guide star: turn the finely-threaded controls and place the reticle's crossline pattern precisely at the desired position in the field.

The upper (lens) section of the eyepiece rotates on a fine thread for precise diopter adjustment for the user's eye, so the reticle can be set to sharpest focus. Reticle pattern is a double crosshair with 2 concentric circles. This Wireless model includes a red LED illuminator, operated from internal batteries, with variable brightness control. Batteries are included with each eyepiece.
