What thing?

Meade 14MM 5000 UWA. I decided to give it a shot and save the cash against the ES ones, seems like a solid eyepiece.

Got a chance to look through the new piece tonight for a few minutes. Unreal. The FOV is crazy compared to the 10mm and the amount you can see looks vast in comparison, you feel like you’re seeing so many more stars. Very cool stuff indeed, can’t wait for the 21st now!

You can make it a lot smaller and lighter.  Look up "Decloaking a Meade eyepiece" on Google.
