I have a Celestron First Scope and as many reviewers of that point out, its included eyepieces are rubbish. This was a nice, affordable upgrade. The night it came in I quickly found 2 globular clusters and could actually make out Saturn, which was just about impossible before. I don't know enough about eyepieces to tell you if this is the latest and greatest, but it works perfectly for what I needed.

First, very fast shipping..Yeppy! But the EP itself had two blems. First the inside of the chrome barrel was half painted flat black, it was obvious it missed 1/3 the inside barrel. Second, you could see a uneven coating on the eye lens, as you rotated the EP 1/3 had a pinkish coating and then normal looking. I don't think it effected the EP but it was still there. I don't believe Meade would sell these but on the internet they get sold here. (reality)
Lastly...my 17.5 MA (keller) I normally used was as good as this blem eyepiece. I will probably sell this 20mm as it is no better then the eyepiece I already have.

You get what you pay for....So I guess it's what you would get for 35 bucks. ....i think?

Very well made, precise, with crystal clear optics. One has to wonder how such precision can cost so little! I highly recommend this brand of lens.

Works great in a Starblast 4.5 telescope at 22x magnification. Field of view and eye relief are good for an inexpensive Plossl. I also have the 9.7mm version and I'm very happy with both of them.

The Meade Series 4000 Super Plössls are an improvment over the 3000 series Plössls. The 20mm is used for medium power observing on most telescopes. This eyepiece offers a magnification of 63x on an ETX90 or 100x on a 2000mm focal length telescope like the LX90.
