The Meade HD60 Eyepiece range are a quality product. I have used them in a variety of telescopes from an 80mm ED Refractor to Meade's 16" SCT. In each telescope the view was outstanding! I bought three and wish I had bought the full set with case!

Strong Construction,Easy to Use,Quality LensesCons: Comments:
The 12mm Meade HD-60 is of solid construction and good optical performance for the price. It provides a very comfortable 60 deg AFOV that easily accomodates use with eyeglasses. There are no issues with blackouts. The biggest weakness I see in this eyepiece is that there is some mild loss of contrast for deep sky observations due to an uneven blackness to the sky background such that the central field is darker than the edge. This edge brightening is not dramatic, but noticeable and does somewhat impact the viewing experience. Overall it is a very good value.
