It's possible that a new standard has been set with the Meade Series 4000 eyepieces, which yield the widest possible fields of view, in line with pinpoint edge-of-field sharpness and long eye relief, and yet has incredibly low astigmatism, spherical aberration, and off-axis color.
Additionally they incorporate 7-layer multi-coatings and edge-blackened optics for the best possible image contrast.
These are professional 4 to 8-element models that enable levels of optical efficiency that is usually extremely hard to achieve with eyepieces with a lesser number of elements.
Eyepieces come with a soft rubber eyeguard, custom fitted to every eyepiece using a bayonet mount.
The eyeguards fold down, is very convenient for eyeglass wearers, and in fact the folded eyeguard protects eyeglasses from coming into contact with the metal eyepiece housings.Rubber grips are supplied on all but the 3 shortest focal length Super Plössl eyepieces.
Meade 4-element Super Plössls are outstanding all round eyepieces. For viewing hairline lunar and planetary detail, splitting close double stars, or for resolving faint nebulosity in deep-space.
Meade Super Plössls optimize the overall performance of any kind of telescope type, regardless of whether it is a f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain, f/16 refractor, or f/4 reflector.
