Manufacturer Description

Meade Series 5000 1.25" Mega Wide Angle 10mm Eyepiece # 607016 provides sharp, pin-point images from the center all the way to the edge of its Mega 100 degree Apparent Field of View.

The right eyepiece can make or break any telescope. After all, why squint through a tiny pinhole when you can linger at a dramatic window on the universe and examine every detail? Meade Series 5000 eyepieces offer revolutionary new advances in resolution, image correction and eye relief at irresistible prices. You simply won’t believe how a premium eyepiece improves your view, no matter what scope you own. See pinpoint resolution edge-to-edge with luxuriously long eye relief. If you think Meade's Series 5000 eyepieces look good on the outside, wait until you see the heavens through one.

The 100 degree apparent field of view MWA eyepieces currently are Meade’s widest angle eyepiece. Experience bright, sharp, sweeping vistas of the heavens; vistas so large that you feel that you are “sky-walking” through the skies.

This parfocal Mega Wide Angle Series 5000 Eyepieces use 7 optical elements to achieve a high contrast image with razor sharp correction all the way to the edge of their huge 100 degree apparent field of view. These lenses are fully multi-coated with blackened edges and fold-up rubber eyecups.

For uncompromising views that make any telescope better, order these eyepieces today. You have to see the universe through one to believe it.

Product carries full one year Meade factory limited warranty (within US/Canada only).

      4.0 Review of Meade 10mm MWA (100 deg AFOV) eyepiece

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      Good optical performance for a very wide field of view, at a very reasonable affordable price.

      The only drawback I noticed is the narrowness of the safety groove. The compression bands in both of my diagonals don't fit on the "floor" of the eyepiece's safety groove, so the eyepiece tilts slightly when the lock screw is tightened. (I don't know if there is any detectable effect on optical performance.) I would recommend removing the compression band from the diagonal when using this eyepiece, and leaving the lock screw fairly loose, to avoid marring the eyepiece's body.

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
