Meade Instruments was founded on the principle that amateur astronomers deserve quality products for a fair price and exceptional customer service. This remains a crucial aspect of Meade today, serving amateur astronomers throughout the world with a wide variety of telescopes and accessories.
Their eyepieces, in particular, have gained much attention. Their Super Plossl Series 4000 eyepieces offer a 52° apparent field of view, a 4-element design with premium optical glass, edge blackened lenses, and fully-coated optics for excellent contrast and light transmission. All Series 4000 eyepieces have a soft rubber eyeguard for comfort. The Series 5000 eyepieces are the next step up with a 6-element, fully multi-coated optical design, and a 60° apparent field of view for even wider views.
Apparent field of view is even wider with the Ultra Wide, Mega Wide, and Extreme Wide eyepieces. Each of these eyepieces offers the quality optics you’ve come to expect from Meade as well as a whopping 82° (Ultra Wide) and even 100° (Mega Wide and Extreme Wide) field of view. What sets these eyepieces a part is Meade’s attention to detail and careful design features that cater to every kind of observer. If you are looking for stunning, immersive views, look no further than Meade eyepieces!
