Product Description

The 100° apparent field of this new Meade Mega Wide Angle 15mm 2" medium power eyepiece is nearly 50% larger in area than an 82° field eyepiece of the same focal length. And its price is surprisingly economical compared to competitive 100° field eyepieces of a similar focal length.

You can use the field of view calculator below to see just how much sky the 15mm Meade Extra Wide Angle can reveal with your telescope.

The eight fully multi-coated lens elements of the 15mm Meade Extra Wide Angle provide full field sharpness - with well-controlled astigmatism, field curvature, and lateral color. Blackened lens edges subdue internal reflections to improve the contrast. 

The Meade 15mm MWA has a long 20mm eye relief for unvignetted use when wearing eyeglasses and is parfocal with the other Meade Mega Wide Field eyepieces. It is waterproof for protection against dewing during nights of high humidity and cool temperatures.

The 2"  Meade 15mm MWA measures 2.9" in diameter and 4.9" in length. It  has a soft fold-down eyecup to shield your eye from ambient light (from a neighbor's security light, for example) to improve image contrast. It has a wide rubber grip ring for a secure hold in dewing conditions or when wearing gloves or mittens in cold weather, an important consideration with an eyepiece that weighs a substantial 22.8 ounces.

For the price this 15mm 100 mega wide is very adequate. Obviously heavier than the 1 -1/4" versions but it is a 2" version and the only one I could find in a 15mm 2" any where near this price range. (Posted on 10/10/2018)
