The 14mm Meade 100° field Extra Wide Angle 2” eyepiece provides entrancing wide field/medium power images with any size or type of telescope you may own that is capable of using a 2” eyepiece.
With fast f/ratio reflectors, such as Dobsonians, this 14mm Meade gives both an immense field and a bright image (with an exit pupil over 3mm with the typical f/4.5 Dob) that is very effective on nebulas. Its very wide field also makes it convenient for moderate power lunar and planetary observing with Dobs, as you have much longer to observe before the planet drifts out of the field and the scope has to be repositioned. That said, it is worth noting that the new 14mm Meade Extra Wide gives impressive views of open clusters, nebulas, galaxy clusters, and globular clusters with any telescope.
The 100° apparent field of this new 14mm Meade Extra Wide Angle eyepiece is nearly 50% larger in area than an 82° field eyepiece of the same focal length. You can use the field of view calculator below to see just how much sky the 14mm Meade Extra Wide Angle can reveal with your telescope.
The 14mm Meade Extra Wide Angle has high contrast, comfortable eye relief, and full field sharpness – with well-controlled astigmatism, field curvature, and lateral color. This 14mm Meade fits 2" focusers only. It is parfocal with the other Meade Extra Wide Field 2” eyepieces.
There is a soft rolldown eyecup to shield your eye from ambient light (from a neighbor’s security light, for example) and improve the image contrast. At an eye relief of 12mm, the 14mm Meade Extra Wide Angle would normally somewhat vignette the field of view for eyeglass wearers. However, since the 100° field is so wide that you can’t see the full field without having to move your head from side to side to take it all in anyway, vignetting in the conventional sense is not a problem.
