Manufacturer Description

Meade Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle 20mm Eyepiece (2") #07743. Meade Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle eyepieces offer revolutionary new advances in resolution, image correction and eye relief, with an astonishing 82° field of view and waterproof construction. Ranking among the very best eyepieces available at any price, these eyepieces routinely outperform those costing even several times as much.

Only the highest quality materials were selected to create this amazing eyepiece value, offering an unparalleled vista on the Universe. All series 5000 UWA eyepieces feature a 7-element, fully multi-coated optical design with premium-grade and exotic optical glasses for the best possible performance and image brightness, blackened lens edges and internal surfaces for enhanced contrast, and a parafocal design for little or no focus change when switching between eyepieces of the series.

With a precision machined 2" barrel, comfortable long eye relief, and adjustable twist-up rubber eyeguard for comfort and blocking stray light. The ultimate observing experience. Looking through a Meade Series 5000 UWA eyepiece is the next best thing to actually being there.

Note: Similar 18mm UWA eyepiece shown in photo.

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      Use this with my 8 inch dob and it great. Its heavy and big and awesome. Good eye relief and you can look around without the kidney beaning effect. Nice. Took off a star because of the greese on the threads.
