Manufacturer Description

Meades Series 4000 QX Wide Angle is a new line of 5 element eyepieces designed and engineered for high-performance observing. They yield a super wide 70 degree apparent field of view with extreme resolution. This is one of the few eyepieces sold today that can give you a wide field of view with a consistent pinpoint edge-of-field sharpness and long eye relief. All QX Wide Angle Eyepieces feature multi-layered optical coatings to maximize light transmission, and edge-blackened optics for superior image contrast. The new Meade Series 4000 QX Wide Angle eyepieces are an incredible value, delivering excellent performance.

• Super wide 70° apparent field of view.
• 5-element optical design provides clear, sharp, high-contrast images.
• Fully-multi-coated optics for maximum light transmission.
• Lens edges blackened to minimize internal reflections and improve contrast.

      4.0 It's pretty much the only choice.

      Pros:

      Strong Construction,Compact

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This is pretty much the only choice for reticle eyepieces and for finder scopes. And it is only available here. I did purchase another brand a while back that had a flashing feature but it was big, bulky, and broke after first use.

      It would be nice for these things to turn off automatically after a few hours of non use. I just can't seem to remember to turn them off and I'm always replacing batteries.

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
      Was this review helpful? Yes / No
