Product Description

Meade Series 4000 8mm-24mm Zoom Eyepiece (1.25") - This is an excellent addition to telescopes of all types, brands, and price levels from entry level to research grade. A terrific value, especially useful for terrestrial observation to zoon in on potentially moving wildlife. 

Offers the ability to change magnifications "on the fly" yet demanding no compromise in performance. The eyepiece’s internal optics move on smooth, precisely machined surfaces which maintain optical collimation at all continuously variable zoom settings. 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.

Features a precision made 1.25" barrel, and fold down eyeguard for comfortable viewing and blocking stray light. The Series 4000™ 8mm-24mm Zoom Eyepiece (1.25") offers a complete focal length range from 8mm to 24mm (in a single eyepiece) without sacrificing resolution compared to fixed focal length oculars.

Product carries full one year factory limited warranty.

I have been getting interested in astrophotography, particularly through the eyepieces so I could get more variety of magnifications than what a prime lens setup will allow. So, I asked Meade's tech support (via their website) about using this zoom with cameras with T-adapters and whether or not this zoom had threads under the rubber eyecup for connecting a camera. They said that this was not possible, but when I finally got one these eyepieces and removed the rubber cup - VOILA! there actually are M42 / T-threads. The one gotcha for buying this eyepiece is that it was redesigned about 2 years ago and I got mine about a year ago so I do not know which version I have. Mine has a black barrel and the other one has a chrome barrel, I think the chrome barrel is the older one but I am not sure. I also do not know if the chrome barrel version has the threads under the eyecup. Otherwise the eyepiece seems to be decent quality and works pretty good. (Posted on 1/27/2017)
