The 20mm Meade 100° field Extra Wide Angle 2” eyepiece provides a visually immersive observing experience that will keep you entranced at your scope for hours. It gives you visually stunning very wide field/low to medium power images with any size or type of telescope you may own that is capable of using a 2” eyepiece. Nebulas and open clusters are particularly vivid in short focal length scopes, with immense fields of view unfolding before your eyes.
Panning across the star clouds in Sagittarius with the 20mm Meade is almost a mystical experience, like swimming through a sea of glittering diamonds. The field is so wide that you can’t see the field stop without moving your head from side to side, giving you the feeling that you are floating in space, rather than standing earthbound at a telescope.
The 100° apparent field of this new 20mm 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 20mm Meade Extra Wide Angle can reveal with your telescope.
The 20mm Meade Extra Wide Angle has high contrast, comfortable eye relief, and full field sharpness – with well-controlled astigmatism, field curvature, and lateral color. This 20mm 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 20mm 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.
