Various Meade/Celestron 82 degree eyepieces for sale

Recommended Posts

For sale:

Meade series 5000 UWA 82 degree FOV eyepieces, with original boxes and original eyepiece caps:

  • 24mm - £80
  • 18mm - £80 
  • 8.8mm - £50
  • 4.7mm - £50  

Celestron Luminos 82 degree eyepiece, also with end caps and box:

  • 31mm - £130

£350 if all purchased all together.

Postage will be from Ireland at cost, should be less than £20 equivalent to the UK, but this can be discussed.

Optics in very good condition, very nice views through all of these. These eyepieces were my main eyepieces until I recently bought some 100-degree eyepieces that span the same focal lengths and fields of view. Now these 82-degree eyepieces are for sale to make room in the eyepiece case as they are not being used enough, and I'd like to see someone else get the same joy I got from these.

Thanks,

-Cathal

Pics of the eyepieces here. The boxes are not pristine, but pics of those will be tomorrow, as they are at the old house (I'm in the process of moving house). The eyepieces have been well used, but well cared for.

All of the eyepieces, front and top views.

PM answered.

Update on box status and conditions:

  • Luminos 31mm - Near perfect condition, I still have the original plastic wrap from the eyepiece for this one.
  • UWA 24mm - Box on the missing list, I could not locate this one last night. Eyepiece would be shipped appropriately packaged and protected.
  • UWA 18mm - Near-perfect box condition.
  • UWA 8.8mm - Very very good condition box.
  • UWA 4.7mm - Good condition box.

If anyone needs box pictures, please let me know.

Hi,

 

    How clear are the optics on the 4.7mm please? Could I also ask if you have had any nice planetary views with this eyepiece?

 

Regards,

 

Mark

Just want to say, the Meade 24mm is a beast. I've got one and it's absolutely brilliant - sharp stars...edge to edge.  £80 is a steal price, borderline free, given the original price.

I'm interested in the 8.8mm. 

Two questions

1 - how much would postage to UK mainland be?

2 - do you take PayPal payments?

Thanks

Hi Cathal

Is the Celestron Luminos 82 degree 31mm eyepiece still available?

Would you be prepared to accept £85 including the cost of postage to the uk?

Many Thanks
