    Great crispness on Jupiter, start looks nice and sharp; double stars are not easily split; handles nice, eye relief is great; field of view is very nice too. I look forward to more use with this.

    Comments about Meade Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle Telescope Eyepieces:

    This review is for the 14 mm eyepiece. This is the first time I have had a wide field eyepiece and it was an impressive improvement over the conventional eyepieces that I have used. I can't compare it to the more expensive wide-fields since I am not going to invest $300 to $500 for same, but for the price, this eyepiece is great. I look forward to receiving two more that I have ordered

      Comments about Meade Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle Telescope Eyepieces:

      I purchased the 14mm 5000 ultra wide angle lens, hands down the best
      1.25 lens I have ever looked through.
      The price is amazing after using the lens I could not believe
      Thats all I paid for it .
      All I can say if there is anyone new to using telescopes or
      have been using them for a long time,if you are looking for
      Outstanding telescope optics but cant afford televue prices
      Meade is the only way to go.........

          The eyepiece arrived 3 days after ordering. It was packaged well and arrived exactly when they said it would. I look forward to ordering more items from Telescopes.com.

          I used the eyepiece the other night and it was very good. Good flat field, edge to edge, performed well. I was quite surpised at its performance, a portal to space!

          Customer Q & A

          2 Questions About This Product
          Q: "I have a Meade DS-2080AT-LNT. What would work better for me, the Meade Series 5000 14mm Ultrawide with a Meade 2x Ultra TX TeleXtender or the Meade Series 5000 6.7mm Ultrawide? I am looking to get the best combination of magnification and image quality?"
          A: The Meade Series 5000 6.7mm is going to provide the more magnification than a 14mm with a 2x teleXtender. We recommend using a 6.7mm or 5mm eyepiece to reach your telescope's maximum magnification while keeping the image crisp and defined.
          Q: "How long is the eye-relief on the 6.7mm eyepiece?"
          A: The 6.7mm Meade Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle Telescope Eyepiece has 14.8mm of eye relief.
