Meade 6.4mm Series 4000 Super Plossl Telescope Eyepiece - 07170-02
The Meade 8mm - 24mm Zoom Eyepiece is a very popular choice for amateur astronomers who want the convenience of a quality eyepiece that will cover a wide range of magnifications quickly. No more constantly changing eyepieces when you want a closer look; just twist the barrel of this easy-to-use zoom eyepiece until you reach a magnification that is just right.
Know which focal length you are using at a glance
Meade has made it easy to know exactly which focal length you used for Mars, or the Moon, or the Orion Nebula. The black anodized barrel is marked in one millimeter increments, from 8mm to 24mm. If you want to know your magnification, just take a look at where the marker and focal length line up, and then do your calculations by dividing the marked eyepiece focal length into your telescope’s focal length.
Fits a wide selection of 1.25” focusers and diagonals
The Meade Series 4000 8-24 Zoom Eyepiece has a 1.25” chrome barrel, and will work with most any telescope. If you have a 2” focuser, you probably already have a 2” to 1.25” adapter, and that set-up would work just fine. The barrel is threaded to accept standard 1.25” planetary and Moon filters. Picture how nice it would be to gaze at the Moon with a zoom eyepiece fitted with a Moon filter! You would be able to zoom in and zoom out in glare-free comfort without changing eyepieces and re-installing the filter on each one.
Multi-coated optics provide good contrast and light transmission
A zoom eyepiece is a fairly complicated optical instrument. The Meade 8mm - 24 mm Zoom sports seven elements, and they are all coated with multiple layers of anti-reflection coatings to minimize internal reflections and provide the highest possible light transmission and image contrast. A rubber eyecup places your eye at just the right location, and can fold flat for eyeglass wearers.
Available for shipment to the USA and Canada only.
