Product Description

This 7mm Meade PWA is an exceptional high power/ultra wide field eyepiece that's great for resolving globular clusters, picking up detail in smaller galaxies, investigating the Moon and planets in depth, and more. It works with any type of telescope, from a fast focal ratio Dobsonian reflector to a long focal ratio achromatic refractor or Maksutov. The wide field of the 7mm Meade makes observing through it feel like you're gazing serenely through a "picture window on space" rather than squinting through an eyepiece.

The lens edges have been blackened as well to improve contrast.

At 12mm, the eye relief is not bad, although eyeglass wearers will still see a somewhat vignetted image. This isn't as much a problem as you might think, as the 82° field of view is so wide that even non-eyeglass wearers have trouble seeing the whole field at once. This is an eyepiece that shows you a "picture window view" of space for a true full-immersion observing experience. With its unconstricted view, your eye relaxes, allowing you to easily use the "averted vision" technique to study faint details across a huge field of view.
