Meade 15 mm Series 5000 MWA 100º 2" Eyepiece

Once you’ve looked through an eyepiece with a gigantic 100 field of view, its hard to go back. The universe opens its doors wide open when you step up to a Meade Mega Wide Angle, or MWA, Series 5000 eyepiece. The 15 mm model offers up a nice big viewing window, and has 20 mm of eye relief; a double whammy that insures viewing comfort even for those who wear eyeglasses when they observe.

The Meade MWA 100-degree eyepieces are an optical wonder, with up to 9 elements working together to yield a high contrast image with sharp, pinpoint stars to the edges of the amazingly wide field. The lenses are Fully Multi-Coated and each element has blackened edges, two extra steps that further increases contrast. Fold down eyecups are a nice plus. Most people like to keep the eyecups up to block stray light from the side, but it is nice to have the ability to roll or fold them down if you wear glasses, or if you want to snap a quick photo through a Smartphone! If you decide to buy more than one Meade Mega Wide Angle Eyepiece, you will be pleased to know that the set is parfocal, meaning you will not have to re-focus your telescope much, if at all, when changing from one Meade MWA eyepiece to the next.
