Product Description

This extra-value Meade 1.25" accessory kit is a complete package of 13 of the most popular visual accessories for your Meade telescope.
 
You get five Meade Series 4000 1.25" 4-element Plössl eyepieces with premium optical glass. They come in focal lengths of 6mm, 9mm, 13mm, 18mm, and 32mm. All of the eyepieces have a good 52° field of view with fully-coated optics for great contrast and light transmission. Each has a soft rubber eye guard for comfort.

You get a 1.25" Meade fully multicoated 2x Barlow lens to double the power of the eyepiece that came with your scope, as well as the power of any of the included eyepieces (or any other 1.25" eyepiece you may already have). The Barlow has standard T-threads so you can attach an optional T-ring and your DSLR camera for lunar photography through your scope.

To bring out surface structure and details in planetary observing, you get a set of six Meade 1.25" eyepiece filters that include a light red, dark yellow, light yellow, dark blue, light blue, and green. You also get a #ND96 1.25" neutral density Moon filter to cut down the glare of our nearest celestial neighbor without affecting the color and increase the contrast of its features. The Moon filter is also useful for splitting close binary stars, as it will reduce the glare of the brighter star of the pair so that the dimmer component isn't overwhelmed by the light of the brighter one.

Finally, all the accessories come in a locking hard carrying case with a foam interior that is die-cut to hold the accessories (plus has cutouts for three additional 1.25" eyepieces), to keep them conveniently handy in the dark.

This kit will give you just about all the visual accessories you'll need with your scope, at a great money-saving price.

I got this set for Christmas one year and it's been the best eyepieces I own. The filters are good quality for visual and astrophotography use with the only thing lacking being a light pollution filter. Excellent price too...... (Posted on 10/17/2019)

I've mostly used cameras with my Meade LX200 12" telescope but the kids wanted to look through it. This kit looked to have the most flexibility. It was easy for the kids to use the different eyepieces and filters. I really liked how the filters are interchangeable and screw onto the backs of the eyepieces. The kids tried quite a few combinations and it was a great teaching session on telescopes and filters. The neutral density filters were great for viewing the moon and planets. Definitely a good set for the price. (Posted on 10/17/2019)

This is a great set of eyepieces even for the money. Other eyepieces may cost more but won't deliver much better performance. I don't use the filters very much except for the neutral density to reduce the intensity when observing the moon. The range of sizes in this kit is good. (Posted on 9/13/2019)

I purchased this kit as I began my journey into astronomy. While I view the 4000 series as a stepping stone to higher end eyepieces, we all have to start somewhere, and it is a economical way to "get your feet wet". (Posted on 1/3/2019)

The meade series 4000 eyepiece set is a good value for the price. I used this set when i had my meade LX200GPS. i used them for many years before I upgraded to televues and series 5000. I was able to get all the eyepieces and filters I needed at a reasonable price. The series 5000 and teleVues are better, but much more expensive. If you're just starting out, or on a budget, these eyepieces will serve you well. I have no comment on the color filters as I only used the Moon filter from this set. (Posted on 12/3/2018)

I own an older version of this kit with a few minor differences, I have to say this is a really good deal the eyepieces alone cost more than the price tag of this kit, and it is really nice to be able to carry your eyepieces around even to the back yard and in the house, in a rugged case that keeps everything organized. Im not to sure how useful the color filters are but the eyepieces/barlow/case are a great deal. (Posted on 11/6/2018)
