Meade 1.25" Series 4000 - 26 mm Super Plossl Eyepiece

Designed to utilize the very latest in optical glass types, Meade 4-element 26mm Super Plossl is a top-performing eyepiece that can be used for a wide range of astronomical purposes. 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. 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.

Meade Series 4000 eyepiece yields the widest possible field of view, consistent with pinpoint edge-of-field sharpness and long eye relief-and yet with extremely low 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.
