DESCRIPTION

Meade 12mm MA Astrometric Eyepiece - Wireless - 1.25"

A high-precision eyepiece for a wide range of astronomical measurements, the Meade MA12mm Astrometric Eyepiece is an important tool for the advanced amateur. The laser-etched reticle is evenly illuminated by an internal red LED, with illumination intensity variable from bright to faint. Four types of measuring scales are included, for measuring double star angular separations, position angles, planetary diameters, and lunar crater diameters, as well as many other useful astronomical measurements. Included also is a double-crossline scale for long-exposure photo-guiding, making the Meade Astrometric Eyepiece truly an all-purpose illuminated reticle system.

The 3-element Modified Achromatic optical system yields sharp images across the full field of view and optics are coated for increased light transmission. The eyepiece's diopter adjustment allows for sharp focusing of the reticle to the observer's eye, and a rubber eyecup (foldable for eyeglass wearers) shields the eye from extraneous light. The MA 12mm Astrometric Eyepiece is supplied complete with wireless illumination control and internal batteries.

A must have tool.

A very useful eyepiece for precise polar alignment,planetary features and binary stars separation and angle measuring. Wish it had 2 dust caps instead of one. A pulse feature could be useful for low magnitude close binaries.

Great specialty eyepiece

The Astrometric eyepiece is performing as I expected. It makes centering an object very easy. Measurements are very easy to make and angles are easy to get.

12 mm illuminated reticle eyepiece

I had a 40 year old Meade 12mm IR eyepiece and could no longer get bulbs for it. I purchased the new one and I feel the eyepiece is okay but the LED illuminated reticle cannot be dimmed down enough to my liking. It is useable, but I am used to the circles on my Telrad that has infinite LED adjustability (not to mention my 40 y/o eyepiece). I feel you need this feature for fainter stars. Otherwise it is okay.

Useful, but be forewarned

Overall, I like this eyepiece. The longer focal length makes it much more comfortable for most work. It can serve for guiding, which removes one extra eyepiece from my case. As the previous viewer noted, you can take a lot of measurements with this. That makes it a fun and interesting accessory. However, there is one caveat. The eye relief is marginal and indeed just on the edge of not being enough, especially if you wear glasses for observing. Fortunately, I can remove my glasses when needed.
