Home Eyepieces Zoom & Guiding Eyepieces Meade Series 4000 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece
High-resolution optics that realize the full potential of the zoom format. For years zoom eyepieces were regarded as "convenient," but without the optical resolution required in demanding astronomical applications. The Meade Series 4000 Zoom Eyepiece has changed that impression - completely and forever. Conceived by one of the world's leading designers of photo-optical instruments, the 6-element 4 group design has 15-18mm of eye relief, and provides an apparent field of view of 40° at 24mm, increasing to an apparent field of view of 60° at the highest power 8mm setting. All lenses are multi-coated for maximum light transmission and image contrast, while minimizing internal reflections.Because, finally, this is a zoom eyepiece designed for the advanced amateur astronomer who is uncompromising in his or her optical performance specifications. Performance is fully consistent with the finest fixed focal length eyepieces.
BBC Sky at Night Magazine group test winner scoring 93% "For us the Meade gave the most pleasing views with all our test telescopes, and so is deservedly the winner"The Meade Series 4000 Zoom is an excellent addition to telescopes of all types, brands, and price levels, whether 60mm refractor, 8" Dobsonian, 90mm ETX, or 12" SCT Telescope. Conceived by one of the world's leading designers of photo-optical instruments, the 6-element 4 group design has 15-18mm of eye relief, and provides an apparent field of view of 40° at 24mm, increasing to an apparent field of view of 60° at the highest power 8mm setting. All lenses are multi-coated for maximum light transmission and image contrast, while minimizing internal reflections. The internal zoom optics move on smooth, precisely machined surfaces which maintain optical collimation at all zoom settings. A scale graduated in 1mm units indicates the zoom focal length in operation. All lenses are multi-coated for maximum light transmission and image contrast, while minimizing internal reflections. The chromed brass barrel is threaded for standard 1.25" filters. With its high-eyepoint optics and foldable rubber eyecup the Meade Series 4000 Zoom Eyepiece is comfortably usable by eyeglass wearers; even with eyeglasses the entire field of view is easily observable.
First class service and a great eyepiece (04/07/2020) Mark - Walsall
Great value, easy to use Saw my best ever view of Jupiter the first time I used this - I think I'll be using it most of the time now, only using fixed eyepieces when really needed. Great value for what it does - the convenience of not swapping eyepieces makes a big difference. Arrived promptly, well packaged. (08/04/2017) Simon - Herts
A Nice Addition To My Kit Nice build, good price, smooth action. Scale marked with one degree divisions for easy swap to fixed focal length EP. Biggish eye lens, deep eyeguard. Focus quite sharp through the range, within limits of seeing and transparency. Good purchase. (01/02/2017) Doug - Merseyside
