Meade 56mm Series 4000 Super Plossl Eyepiece - 2"

The world standard in telescope oculars, Meade Series 4000 eyepieces yield the widest possible fields 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 multicoated optics for optimum image contrast, these sophisticated 4- to 8-element designs permit levels of optical performance generally impossible to achieve with eyepieces of fewer elements.

All Series 4000 eyepieces include a soft rubber eye guard, custom fitted to each eyepiece with a bayonet mount. The eye guards fold down for eyeglass wearers, and in fact the folded eye guard shields eyeglasses from coming into contact with the metal eyepiece housings. Rubber grips are provided on all but the three shortest focal length Super Plossl eyepieces.

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 the air-spaced design of the Meade #140 2x Apochromatic Barlow. All focal lengths through 32mm are parfocal.

  • if i where to order this eye piece, where would it ship from.

    This eyepiece will ship from our store. OPT has only one location. Other than when asking a manufacturer to drop-ship, we will always ship from our Southern California (Oceanside) address. With smaller items such as this, you can plan on them coming from

  • also would this eyepiece fit on my astromaster 114 or is this eyepice for a specific telescope

    Thank you for your question. This eyepiece is uses on telescopes with focusers that can accommodate 2 inch eyepieces. Unfortunately since the focuser on the Astromaster 114 is 1.25 inch diameter, it will not accept this eyepiece.

  • How are you;How much to ship to my WA address 98295?Thanks for your time and trouble Pat

    Hi, This is Steve from OPT; the shipping to your Washington address would be free. If you are a new customer, we would need to have the billing and shipping address match, unless we could get a money order for the eyepiece. We do have them in stock. Thank

  • Is this the mount that came with the NexStar 76/114/130 GT telescopes? I believe there was a less robust mount for the smaller scopes in the series- i.e. NexStar 60 GT. This would be for a Meade ETX-125 OTA that no longer has a functional mount.

    This mount originally came as part of the Nexstar 102GT package, but it appears to be the same mount used for the 114, but with a stiffer steel tripod like the newer SLT mount rather than the thinner aluminum tripod.

  • Would this eyepiece be good for locating objects during initial alignment and does it have crosshairs?

    This eyepiece would be good for doing an initial alignment. This eyepiece does not have a cross hair.
