5 Element Plossl Series 5000     Ultra Wide Angle Series 5000
   
  The Series 5000 Plössl eyepieces represent a milestone in design and engineering. The five and six element designs feature tack sharp optical performance which delivers a 40% improvement in corrections for chromatic aberration and edge-distortions over traditional plössl. They yield the widest possible fields-of-view, consistent with pinpoint edge-of-field sharpness and contrast. Compare their unparalleled 60° apparent field-of-view to any Plössl on the market today. Take a look through the Meade Series 5000 Plössls and rediscover your favorite celestial objects.         Representing the ultimate in eyepiece design and technology, the six and seven element Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle eyepieces deliver extremely high resolution, contrast and full-field sharpness over an astounding 82° apparent field-of-view. Only the highest quality materials were selected to create these extraordinary eyepieces. The designs required several different types of exotic glass in order to achieve the highest level of optical performance. Looking through a Series 5000 Ultra Wide Angle eyepiece is the next best thing to actually being there.
