Meade 2" Series 4000 - 56 mm Super Plossl Eyepiece



The Meade 56mm Series 4000 is a 2" Super Plossl eyepiece with a 4-element optical design. This optical design allowed for greater levels of optical performance generally impossible to achieve with eyepieces of fewer elements. Each element has 7-layer multi-coatings and edge-blackened optics for optimum image contrast. The result is a 52° field of view, pinpoint edge-of-field sharpness, and long eye relief with extremely low astigmatism, spherical aberration, and off-axis color.
The Series 4000 eyepiece includes a soft rubber eyeguard, custom fitted to each 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 are provided to make it easier to handle in low light or cold conditions.



Designed to utilize the very latest in optical glass types, Meade 4-element Super Plossl is a superb general-purpose eyepiece. For observing hairline lunar and planetary detail, splitting close double stars, or for resolving faint nebulosity in deep space, Meade Super Plossl optimizes the performance of any telescope type, whether f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain, f/16 refractor or f/4 reflector. It also operates well in conjunction with the air-spaced design of the Meade #140 2x Apochromatic Barlow. The Series 4000 56mm eyepiece is also parfocal. The Super Plossl 56 mm eyepiece with 2" O.D. barrel yields 36X and an actual field of view of 1.4° on an 8" f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope.



Please Note: Top and bottom dust caps are not included in the purchase of this product.
