Product Details

  • Designed to utilize the very latest in optical glass types, Meade 4-element Super Plossls are excellent general-purpose eyepieces. For observing hairline lunar and planetary detail, splitting close double stars, or for resolving faint nebulosity in deep-space, Meade Super Plossls optimize the performance of any telescope type, whether f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain, f/16 refractor, or f/4 reflector. They also operate well in conjunction with a wide variety of Barlow lenses.

    Utilizing the very latest in optical glass types, the Series 4000 eyepieces represent an excellent general-purpose eyepiece. Engineered with a high quality 4-element design and offering a generous 52 degree apparent field of view, the eyepiece uses premium grade optical glass with multi-layer coatings and blackened lens edges for great image sharpness and contrast. Eye relief is 30mm.

    Features a precision made standard 1.25" barrel and fold down rubber eyeguard for comfortable viewing as well as blocking stray light. Parafocal with other eyepieces of this series to minimize the need to refocus when switching eyepieces.

    very enjoyable

    This is my first time using this type of eyepiece as well as the LX65 and due to location have only had the ability to view one time but wow what a view of the moon...detail was clear and met my expectations … the eyepiece was everything as advertised. Cant wait until the fog clears out. Would recommend this to anyone...very happy with it.

    Excellent Eyepiece

    I purchase two of them to use with my Binoviewer, 2" William Optic carbon fiber diagonal and Day Star Quark Chromosphere filter through a 600mm focal length, 4.7 inch retractor, the views were fantastic! I was worried about my purchase of the Orion Astroview 120ST Achromatic retractor and this combination of gear. The views are fantastic!

    very Execellent Service

    Package arrived when promised. Packaging was in excellent condition. Eyepiece is excellent, clear and flawless. Have ordered other products from provider after this order. So I am very satisfied and can recommend them. Also other members of the local astronomy club agree that their pricing is very good.

    I recently purchased this Meade 4000 lens. It’s my favorite lens, I love it. I would buy from OPT again.
