    I purchased this on recommendations that a 32mm eyepiece was wonderful for seeing more of the sky. For this, it is wonderful, and I use it as my primary when searching for objects. It is easy to see through, has good eye relief, but doesn't resolve all the stars in the view. After viewing other eyepieces at a star party, granted more expensive ones, I think I would save up for something better. However, it is a good piece for the price if budget is a concern. It is far better than what came with my Orion scope.

      Comments about Meade Series 4000 Super Plossl Telescope Eyepieces:

      The 20mm Meade 4000 Super Plossl is the best Plossl eyepiece I've ever used in short tube fast reflectors. The 20mm version hits the sweet spot for brightness, contrast and field of view. I like it better than the 26mm, 12.4 and 9.7mm versions.

          I got my 56mm mead eyepiece. and finally have the full set got it in 3 days of notification. Meade maybe a bit slow at getting things out but the Eyepiece is great very nice wide field of view 1.04 actual field of view with my 12 inch LX200 with a 54x mag. Great eyepiece for large clusters and galaxies. in Leo this eyepiece will give a great show of M66 M65. all in one view. and there are a few triple galaxy as well. definitely a great eyepiece in its class.

              Bought the Celestron 130 EQ. Would highly recommend dropping the 10mm & 20mm EP's and get some of these. I bought the 32mm and liked IR so much I bought the 20mm as well. Very sturdy feeling in your hand and have good eye relief. Highly recommend getting these.

              Customer Q & A

              11 Questions About This Product
              Q: "I am an lucky owner of an Meade LX200 Telescope. This includes the Meade Super Plossl 26 mm Multicoated eyepiece. What are the differences of other eyepieces? Is a bigger one better and if yes why? I am very new to astronomy but it has my interest?"
              A: Eyepieces are defined by the millimeter the bigger the millimeter the smaller the magnification. The smaller the millimeter the greater the magnification. It is a good idea to get a wide range. To figure out the magnification you will be using simply divide the focal length of the telescope by the millimeter of the eyepiece and the number that you get is how many times the naked eye that you will be seeing with.
              Q: "I own a Meade 114EQ telescope will the Super Plossl 40mm Eyepiece work with my telescope and If so is there a guide I can follow for future reference?"
              A: As long as the eyepiece is a 1.25' it will work just fine. There really is no type of guide to reference. Just follow a simple rule of thumb when trying to think of what eyepiece to get "The larger the millimeter of the eyepiece the smaller the magnification"
              Q: "How many lenses are there in this eyepiece?"
              A: This eyepiece has 4 lens elements.
              Q: "We own a Meade NG 70 telescope for beginners. We are not too happy with the eyepieces that come with that. Looking for ones with a better magnification. Can you please recommend ones that are ideal?"
              A: The Meade 6.4mm eyepiece would work quite well, and provide you with much more magnification.  The 9.7mm would also be a good choice, and give you a wider field of view.
              Q: "What is the lowest priced 1.25" eyepiece (say 40mm) with crosshairs?"
              A: The lowest-priced telescope eyepiece with reticle is the Celestron 10mm Plossl Reticle Eyepiece 1-1/4 inch. Here's the URL; just paste it into your browser's address window: http://telescopes.com/products/celestron-10mm-plossl-reticle-eyepiece-1-14-6054.html. The page includes an illustration.
              Q: "I just bought an old Meade Researcher Series Modell 1266. Its a 12.5-inch F6? Reflector. I have only one eyepiece and its a 26mm LP. I do not know what that does for me or what its best suited for. I would like some direction on what types of eyepieces I s"
              A: Your Meade Researcher Model 1266 is indeed an f/6. It has a 2-inch focuser. For object location and wide-field viewing of nebulae, galaxies, we'd recommend 32mm and 40mm Super Plossl, 2-inch eyepieces. For closer inspection of the Moon and planets, we'd suggest 9mm and 14mm Super Plossl, 1.25-inch oculars. You'll also need an adapter that will allow you to use 1.25-inch eyepieces in a 2-inch focuser. Here's the URL for the 9mm eyepiece; just paste it into your browser's address window: http://telescopes.com/products/meade-super-plossl-9mm-eyepiece-1-25-inch-31916.html. Here's the URL for the 14mm eyepiece: http://telescopes.com/products/meade-super-plossl-14mm-eyepiece-1-25-inch-31917.html. Here's the 32mm URL: http://telescopes.com/products/meade-super-plossl-32mm-eyepiece-2-inch-31920.html, Here's the 40mm: http://telescopes.com/products/meade-super-plossl-40mm-eyepiece-2-inch-31921.html. And here's the URL for the adapter: http://telescopes.com/products/zhumell-2in-1-25in-eyepiece-adapter-38699.html
              Q: "I have a orion snort tube 4.5\" equatorial relector tescalcope. Dia. 114mm FL 1000mm 1/8.8 i would like a good lence for this at a good price what would you recommend?? thanks Jerry"
              A: The eyepiece to choose depends on what you'd like to do with it. Most planetary viewing is done with 100-150X magnification. You could achieve 100X with an eyepiece having a 10mm focal length. You'll get a little over 150X with an eyepiece having a 6.3mm focal length. The 40mm ocular you've looked at would produce only 25X with your telescope.
              Q: "WHAT MAGNIFICATION IS BEST FOR VIEWING STARS"
              A: We usually recommend a low powered eyepiece for viewing stars. The lower powers give you the larger fields of view. Most telescopes will come with a 25mm or something close. I would suggest a larger 32mm eyepiece for viewing stars. It will have less magnification, but a much larger field of view. Feel free to call us at 800-303-5873 and let us know what scope you have and we can make some recommendations.
              Q: "I have a Meade DS 2114 con .965" and 2" holders, may i get anywhere a 1.25 holders and use the most common eyepieces? Thanks"
              A: Yes, you would be able to change this to the standard 1-1/4 inch format. Here is the pieces that you need. http://www.telescopes.com/products/Meade_AD-2_Adapter_-_Accepts_1.25_Inch_Oculars_-_Fits_.965_Inch_Focusers_26920.html Thank you
              Q: "Hello i am a first time user of a 70 az-ads refracting tele.i was wondering how the magnification lens works. Is a 6.4 mm super plossel stronger then a 9.7mm super plossel or the other way around? Thank you"
              A: The "power" or magnification of a telescope is determined by dividing the focal length of the telescope by the focal length of the eyepiece used with it. Since any number divided by 6.4 is larger than the same number divided by 9.7, the 6.4mm eyepiece is "stronger."
              Q: "HI, Which would be a better choice on a f/5 refractor, the Meade super plossl 4000 series or the Celestron omni series eyepieces? Thanks , Antonio?"
              A: Members of both eyepiece series will give you great views. There's very little difference between them.
