Meade Series 5000 five-element Super Plossl kit new
      #5323078 - 07/18/12 04:22 AM

Hey folks, I recently purchased a Meade Series 5000 Super Plossl eyepiece set which came with a carry case.

However, I believe three eyepieces may be missing.

In the carry case are slots for four 1.25" eyepieces and three 2" eyepieces.

In the 1.25 eyepiece slots I have the following:

Meade Series 5000 Five-Element 20mm

Meade Series 5000 Five-Element 14mm

Meade Series 5000 Five-Element 5.5mm

Is there supposed to be one in the other "empty" spot, or is this the way Meade sells them?

In the 2" eyepiece part of the kit, there are three spots. I only have one eyepiece, which is the Meade Series 5000 Five-Element 32mm.

What is supposed to go in the other two? And if this is an incomplete kit, would Meade supply the missing eyepieces? Or is this the way this kit came?

For reference, it is Meade 07673.

Just check your complect list... E.g. http://www.harrisontelescopes.co.uk/acatalog/Meade_Series_5000_Plossl_Eyepiece_Set.html

It looks like that is normal set for the kit. Vacant slots are waiting for your separate purchases.

I believe Meade has discontinued quite a few of them.
26,14,5.5 and 9mm. Possibly more.

I have a 40mm eyepiece on my eBay watch list. Was there one more on the 2-inch side? I have three 2" spots.

Also, it seems like I'm only missing the 9mm eyepiece.
