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.

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.

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.
