    Default Maxvision 34mm



    I just found this on the Bresser website:

    https://www.bresser.de/en/Sale/Displ...ular-34mm.html

    If I'm correct, this is in fact the exact same eyepiece as an MEADE SWA? Looks like a steal!

    It is, an in my opinion it is a steal. I have the Meade version, it works pretty well even in f/5 telescopes.
    Be aware of the size and weight though - the mentioned .42kg can't be correct, it more like .8kg for the eyepiece alone. The size is quite impressive as well, for some its top may be uncomfortable as it can get in the way of the nose.
    I liked using it a lot in a Skywatcher 102/500 though.

    I do believe the "shell" can be removed for some weight savings and reduction of size.

    I decloaked my 28mm Maxvision - it saved a considerable amount of weight but I did it to fit it in the eye piece case! The Maxvision has excellent performance for the cost. Apparently, they are exactly the same as the Meade.

    Yeah, I quickly ordered one and it was delivered the next day! What a beast but I'm going to remove the shell. Not that difficult I think and they slim down a lot.

    I really don't like the look of those eyecups. If you compare it with the slimmed down version, they are so bulky... fat... in Dutch we would say "lomp" but cant find a good English term.

    Hello Wouter,

    these eyecups may be called in German: Lumpen, Lappen, Fetzen, Hadern, Käseblatt,...
    In English this may be 'rag', don't know if it sounds expressive enough.

    How I am hating wrong eyecups, oh God

    In English fat would be good enough. In PA lump would be well understood. An unfashionable lump is a frump.
