Unlike competing moderately priced Plössls, Meade Series 3000 Plössls are multi-coated for maximum light transmission and image contrast. Chrome plated brass barrels are threaded for standard filters. Upper eyepiece sections are of gleaming black anodized aluminium.
For general-purpose observing of the total range of astronomical objects, the PL25mm provides low power images high in contrast and sharp to the field edge. All Series 3000 Plössls also function well when used with a quality Barlow lens.
All metal construction
Manufactured to exclusive Meade optical designs by one of the worlds leading lens makers, Series 3000 Plössl eyepieces produce excellent results on telescopes of all types, from Schmidt-Cassegrains to reflectors and refractors.
Series 3000 Plössl 40mm (1.25"): A perfect complement to the Series 3000 Plössls above, this all new Plössl 40mm yields spectacular, low power, wide field results with any telescope. Manufactured to the classical Plössl 4 element design, the PL40mm produces, for example, a power of 50X and actual field of 0.88°, almost two Moon diameters, with an 8" f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain (LX90). The chrome plated brass barrel is threaded for filters.
