Meade's top-of-the-line 2" 24mm Ultra-Wide Angle eyepiece delivers an astounding 82° apparent field of view. Featuring fully multi-coated lenses with blackened edges for higher contrast. You have to see the universe through one to believe it.
The advanced diagonal combines all the elements required to provide the ultimate in performance. It starts with a 45 degree precision polished optical flat first surface mirror that won't degrade the image quality from the main telescope optics. Then the most advanced multi-layered dielectric coatings available are applied to insure that 99%+ of the light is reflected to the eyepiece. Finally, this mirror is housed in an all aluminum anodized body with a 2" eyepiece holder and 1.25" adapter. It even comes with an adapter that allows the diagonal to be used with a standard SC thread screw-on attachment as well as the standard slide-in method used on most other telescopes.
Please note: This is a Meade overstock close-out. The items are brand new with full warranty (within US/Canada only), but they are packed in bubble wrap and placed in an ordinary cardboard box by Meade. No bolt case or individual item boxes are included.

What a Great Deal!Pros:
Looks good,Compact,Diagonal Lightweight,Strong ConstructionCons:
Bought the pair because I wanted a second Dielectric for my second scope. Moved the Williams to my C8 and use the Meade on my Meade LX90 12. Great accessory. The 24mm lens was a surprise as I was not expecting much. I like it better for some viewing like star cluster. We have compared it to other higher end EP such as Teleview, ES, etc. It fairs well. So it is one I use often in my observation. It is the only hand grenade in my case (heavy) but it's worth the added weight. Eye relief and observing "comfort" are it's strong points. Sounds subjective but sometimes that special feel makes the difference between using an EP and using it for a paper weight. Good luck!
