The most advanced commercially-available illuminated reticle eyepiece, this Series 4 Plössl 9mm model includes micrometric x-y positioning controls which greatly facilitate locking onto the guide star.

Meade 9mm Plossl Wireless Illuminated Reticle Eyepiece
The sharp, high-power imaging of the 4-element, multi-coated Plössl optical system is complemented by a rubber eyecup (foldable for eyeglass wearers) that shuts out distracting stray light from the observer's eye. The upper (lens) section of the eyepiece rotates on a fine thread for precise diopter adjustment to the user's eye. Reticle pattern is a double crossline with two concentric circles.
The Series 4 Plössl 9mm Wireless Illuminated Reticle Eyepiece includes a red LED illuminator, operated from internal batteries, with variable brightness control. Batteries are included with each eyepiece.

Product QuestionsWhy are these adjustment screws needed ... are the crosshairs not necessarily in the exact centre of the eyepiece?Question by: Dan Bj on Jul 6, 2016 5:37:00 PMThis eyepiece was designed back when manual guiding was more common, so the crosshairs were designed to allow selection of a star to guide on that was not necessarily in the center of the guide scope's field of view. As the crosshairs are adjustable, there is no way to guarantee that they are exactly centered. Meade and other manufacturers also make different reticle eyepieces with non-adjustable crosshairs if that is your preference.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Jul 8, 2016 3:30:00 PMThere are two adjustment screws that alter the position of the cross wires. On the opposite side of the barrel from these each of these 2 two adjustment screws are a further 2 screws - what is their purpose?Question by: Monty on Dec 3, 2014 8:57:01 AMThe purpose of the two screws that are opposite the adjustment screws are to house the springs that put pressure on the reticle against the other two adjustment screws so that the reticle stays in the last configuration that it was adjusted to.Answer by: Roderick (Admin) on Dec 3, 2014 11:29:45 AM
