Well, this has probably been covered before but I must have missed it...

I was checking out Meade's ad re Series 5000 eyepieces, and I noticed that the pic of the 30mm UWA was 'actual size' 8O

I must have had that actual look on my face. My wife asked what I was looking at, and here expression was EXACTLY the same when I showed her. 8O

Are they vaporware, or has anyone actually seen one in the flesh?

Hi Mark,
I saw the whole set of prototypes that a Meade rep had at my local retailer recently. The 30 UW actually looks even bigger in person, if you can imagine that. shocked The 3D effect, I guess. The 40 SW is even bigger! The eye lenses are huge. shocked I'll dig up the ensuing thread for you. Happy New Year!
