Product Details

The new Series 5000 Plossl eyepieces represent a milestone in design and engineering. The five and six element designs feature tack sharp optical performance which delivers a 40% improvement in corrections for chromatic aberration and edge-distortions over traditional plossl designs. They yield the widest possible fields-of-view, consistent with pinpoint edge-of-field sharpness and contrast. Compare their unparalleled 60° apparent field-of-view to any Plossl on the market today. Take a look through the new Meade Series 5000 Plossls and rediscover your favorite celestial objects.
