Meade's Series 4000 QX Wide Angle is a line of 5 element eyepieces
designed and engineered for high-performance observing. They yield a
super wide 70 degree apparent field of view with extreme resolution.
This is one of the few eyepieces sold today that can give you a wide
field of view with a consistent pinpoint edge-of-field sharpness and
long eye relief. All QX Wide Angle Eyepieces feature multi-layered
optical coatings to maximize light transmission, and edge-blackened
optics for superior image contrast. The new Meade Series 4000 QX Wide
Angle eyepieces are an incredible value, delivering excellent
• Super wide 70° apparent field of view.
• 5-element optical design provides clear, sharp, high-contrast images.
• Fully-multi-coated optics for maximum light transmission.
• Lens edges blackened to minimize internal reflections and improve contrast.
To give you an idea of performance I would categorize this as the same as an Old-School Erfle. Very wide field of view with some edge loss in faster scopes. Works best in scopes from f/7 to f/15.
