Good Optics

by Bill, from United States, NM Written on January 17, 2015
This is a very helpful eyepiece. The lack of having to change pieces is very convenient. It has better optics than the Plossl eyepieces that came with the telescopes I have had. The Orion nebula came in very nicely at 8mm. It is a seven element design, so for some scopes it may not be the most perfect for planets, but some have eyepieces they use for those anyway. I have only used it once so far. I looked at the Pleiades, Jupiter, and the Orion nebula, just to give it a try out. I am happy with it. I tested it under what has been for me, good viewing conditions. Where I lived previously, no amount of good quality optics would make enough difference because of the washed out skies. And this was my first time out here with my 8 inch Dobsonian. Also my objective mirror is dirty, so I am expecting even better views when it is cleaned. LOL...

Meade 8-24mm zoom in1 1/4"format

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on July 26, 2012
Use a black felt pen to "blacken" the shiny 1 1/4" lens barrell forward edge, or any preferably dull black paint. This will help cut internal reflections.
Pros: Remarkably sharp to very near the edge of field
Cons: Narrower field of view than much more expensive Baader or Pentax zooms of similar range....
Would recommend: Yes

8-24 Meade eyepiece

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 21, 2011
Just what the telescope needed. This eyepiece is great for quick looks at objects in the night sky. You loose some brilliance because of the design of the eyepiece, however the magnification properties make up for any loss.
Pros: good all around eyepiece
Cons: decrease in illuminance ...
