Product Description

The 18mm Series 5000 UHD 1.25" eyepiece from Meade is a great choice for medium  power observation (this is dependent on your telescope's focal length) nebula, globular clusters, lunar observation, and fine detail in smaller galaxies.  The 65 degree field of view gives a pleasing view of the night sky without getting lost in space.  Eye relief is a generous 16mm allowing eye glass wearers a comfortable viewing experience. 

The design of the eyepiece exudes quality.  From the blackened lens edges for improved contrast and reduce reflections to the parfocal design to minimize, if not eliminate, the need to refocus when you change eyepieces in the series. The design of the UHD series delivers a 40% improvement in corrections for chromatic aberration as well as edge distortions over a traditional ploss.  Throw in the the waterproof design to help combat fog and you have a real winner from Meade.
