Have you seen these...? was created by lunartic_old

Hi all

I was trawling around ebay, looking at the eyepieces, when I came across this eyepiece:
www.apm-telescopes.de/en/Eyepieces//Expl...-Eyepiece-16mm-.html

Looking around the Internet, it appears that this is essentially the Meade Series 5000 Super Wide Angle, and the story goes that they were a batch ordered by the company and was cancelled, apparently when this batch is gone, that's it.

I was looking for an eyepiece in the 12mm-18mm range, and for this price, €18 for postage, I couldn't turn one down.

When I get to use it, I'll let you know how I get on.

It appears to have quite good apparent field of view, Paul. Good for star hopping. You must figure out what its true field of view is. It has 6 lenses also -very nice.

that sooo looks like a meade clone !, but look at the price !
thats for nothing , I'd be very tempted if I was in the market for a 68 degree eyepiece
