Meade Super Plossl 56mm
Very good eyepiece in my opinion.Sharp to the edge and
if you wear a glasses long eyerelief helps to have
a complete view of the field. Never had a problem
to position my eye. This eyepiece performs well
in 150mm f8 refractor, 6"f10 refractor, 8"f10 SCT
and 16"f12 cassegrain.

Meade Super Plossl 56mm
Views are crisp, right to the edge. Eye relief is way to large. Too many black out areas. It is very hard to obtain the right distance to hold your eye. I felt like my head was constantly moving in and out and back and forth to find the view. Once I had to the view I had to hold my head very steady to keep it.

Meade Super Plossl 56mm
Awful! A no-contest when compared to the TeleVue 55mm. Even the Panoptic 35mm with a reducer displays superior images. A giant kidney-bean is obvious no matter wher you place your eye, and it's very off-putting! Aberration is also a severe problem with my sample, no matter which scope I've tried it in. My recommendation is to buy the wonderful Panoptic 35mm, and be satisfied with the (only slightly) narrower field of view. There's no comparison!

This is the first eyepiece I put into my 12" LX-200. I enjoy the spacewalk with it. Good weight to performance ratio.

Meade Super Plossl 56mm
Using a f7 6" newtonian/TV102/SCT 8" celestron, I found this eye piece to be of above average for quality. View of mercury/venus/moon showed slight aberation of color. Stars are sharp to the edge. Contrast is excellent. Eye relief is very poor, infact I would say the experience is similar to looking through a straw. I paid about $95.00 for the ep. Advice: I would save some $$ and buy the 3000 series if you want the high power Meade Plossl.
