Meade 1.25" Series 4000 - 20 mm Super Plossl Eyepiece

The Meade 20mm Super Plossl features a 4-element optical design using the latest optical glass types. This eyepiece can be used for viewing a wide range of celestial objects, including hairline lunar and planetary detail, splitting close double stars, or for resolving faint nebulosity in deep space. The Meade Super Plossl optimizes the performance of any telescope type, whether f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain, f/16 refractor or f/4 reflector. This eyepiece also operates well in conjunction with the air-spaced design of the Meade #140 2x Apochromatic Barlow. The Super Plossl is parafocal so there is little need to refocus when switching eyepieces.

With the widest possible field of view, pinpoint star images, consistent edge-of-field sharpness, and long eye relief, this eyepiece can do it all. The Super Plossl minimizes astigmatism, spherical aberration, and off-axis color. Incorporating 7-layer multi-coatings and edge-blackened optics for optimum image contrast, this sophisticated 4-element design allows for levels of optical performance generally impossible to achieve with eyepieces of fewer elements. A soft rubber eyeguard is custom fitted to the eyepiece with a bayonet mount. The eyeguard folds down for eyeglass wearers, and in fact the folded eyeguard shields eyeglasses from coming into contact with the metal eyepiece housings. Rubber grips make it easy to hold onto the eyepiece barrel in all conditions.
