Levenhuk Plössl eyepiece with a focal length of 4 mm and a 50-deg field of view is one of the most popular models among stargazers. Such eyepieces perform best during visual observations, where image geometry and clarity is more important than field of view and contrast.

Two high-quality achromatic lenses of the eyepiece are fully multi-coated to produce exceptionally bright views of the observed part of the celestial sphere.

Levenhuk Plössl 4 mm has an eye relief of 3.5 mm and a soft rubber eyecup, which provide for additional comfort during observations. The barrel is threaded to accept filters.

Levenhuk Strike 90 Plus telescope together with this eyepiece will produce 150x magnification. The manual says that image quality deteriorates at high magnifications. Is it true? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The maximum useful magnification of Levenhuk Strike 90 PLUS Telescope is 180x. As this value is not exceeded, the image quality won't deteriorate.

Kris Levy (2015-06-02 12:56): Positive
I own Meade etx-90, f-1250, d=90. Which eyepiece (with the highest possible magnification power) will be suitable for this telescope model? Levenhuk Customer Service:
With Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece the highest practical power of your telescope will be exceeded. We recommend that you consider Levenhuk Super Plossl 7.5 mm Eyepiece - https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-super-plossl-7-5mm-eyepiece/. This eyepiece will give you 170x increase.

Tom13 (2015-05-23 01:17): Positive
So can I use it or not? Image quality low or acceptable? Levenhuk Customer Service:
With Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece installed on your telescope you will exceed its highest practical power. Please consider Levenhuk Plossl 6.3 mm Eyepiece - https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-plossl-6-3mm-eyepiece/

Celestron AstroMaster 114 EQ? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The highest practical power of your telescope is 228x, with Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece you will exceed it (250x). You can use this eyepiece with your telescope, but image quality will be reduced.

Chris (2015-03-31 10:06): Positive
Hello! Can you tell me which eyepiece I should purchase to get the highest practical power of Levenhuk skyline pro 105? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Hello Chris, thank you for your inquiry. To obtain the maximum useful magnification of your telescope (204x), you will need a 6.3 mm eyepiece (1300/204 = 6.4). You can find the Levenhuk Plössl 6.3 mm Eyepiece here online: https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-plossl-6-3mm-eyepiece/ Is there any additional information you might need?

Zoe Zier (2015-03-24 11:58): Positive
Hello, please help me, I'm kind of lost. I want to take pictures with my webcam and also increase magnification with Barlow, but I can't connect the cam to the eyepiece…. Levenhuk Customer Service:
The camera should be installed instead of the eyepiece.

Charles Ward (2015-02-23 05:03): Positive
My telescope is Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000, I want to purchase 4 mm eyepiece to use with it. Which one should I choose? Levenhuk Customer Service:
We don't recommend using a 4 mm eyepiece with the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope as the highest practical power of the telescope will be exceeded. What you need is 4.3 mm eyepiece. Unfortunately, eyepieces with 4.3 mm focal length are currently unavailable in our store.

Thomas Moore (2015-02-04 08:53): Positive
What magnification will this eyepiece provide with the Levenhuk Strike 90 Plus telescope? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece will give you 150x increase when used with Levenhuk Strike 90 PLUS Telescope.

Hello! What's the magnification of the eyepiece? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Please specify your telescope model. The eyepiece magnification depends on the telescope focal length.

Mark Norton (2014-07-23 10:15): Positive
Another couple of question from me 1. If I use 2x Barlow lens I will reach 400x magnification... but the image quality won't be very good, right? 2. So the idea is that it doesn't make sense to buy an eyepiece less than 5 mm? Thank you for your help! Levenhuk Customer Service:
1. The maximum useful magnification of your telescope model (without quality loss) is about 200x. When using 2x Barlow Lens with an eyepiece from the kit it will be 80x. With 5 mm eyepiece the highest practical power will be exceeded and it will significantly affect image quality. 2. Yes, moreover you should not use a Barlow lens with 5 mm eyepiece.

Mark Norton (2014-07-23 06:00): Positive
I have Bresser Messier AR-102 102/1000 telescope. Please, recommend an eyepiece to get the maximum useful magnification Levenhuk Customer Service:
To obtain the maximum useful magnification of your telescope (which is 200x) you will need a 5 mm eyepiece, for example Levenhuk LET 5 mm 1.25" Eyepiece https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-let-5mm-1-25-eyepiece/

Martin Safrit (2014-06-24 08:33): Positive
Hello! Tell me what eyepiece should I purchase to get the highest practical power of Levenhuk skyline pro 127? Levenhuk Customer Service:
To obtain the highest practical power of Levenhuk Skyline PRO 127 MAK you will need an eyepiece with the focal length of 6 mm, for example Levenhuk Ra LER 6 mm Eyepiece - https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-ra-ler-6mm-eyepiece/

Spencer Collins (2014-06-24 04:11): Positive
Hi! Which eyepiece should I use for Sky-Watcher BK 1149EQ2 (for planetary observations, magnification should be no less than 180x): Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm or Levenhuk Ra Plossl 4 mm? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Plossl 4mm will be a preferred choice for your telescope.

alex (2014-05-19 03:49): Positive
Hello! Tell me please what to choose 3.5 mm eyepiece or, for example, 7-7.5mm and with barlow lens I could achieve the same magnification of 140x? What about image quality? Is it better to use 3.5 mm eyepiece alone or a combination of 7-7.5mm eyepiece with barlow? Levenhuk Customer Service:
It's better to reduce number of optical accessories to minimum, so it's reasonable to purchase 3.5 mm eyepiece.

Oliver Knight (2014-05-04 02:22): Positive
Hello, I have Sky-Watcher BK705AZ2, I know that its highest magnification is 140x, could you please tell me which eyepiece should I use to get closer to 140X? The standard kit includes 25 mm and 10 mm eyepieces and Barlow lens, if I get it right with this set top magnification is 100x only, please help. Levenhuk Customer Service:
To get your telescope to its highest practical power you need an eyepiece with focal length of 3.5 to 3.7 mm, unfortunately currently we don't have the right model for you.

Stan Leider (2014-04-22 07:50): Positive
Will it work for me if I install it on my SW 15012EQ3-2? I mean if my calculations are correct I will get exactly the highest practical magnification... does it make any sense or is it better for me to use 5 mm eyepiece? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece is great for your telescope, the resulting magnification will be about 300x.

Nona (2014-04-11 10:01): Positive

Greetings! Is it suitable for Levenhuk 120x1000? Levenhuk Customer Service:
If you use Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece with Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ the highest practical power will be exceeded. In this case 4.5 mm eyepiece is more suitable.

Jay Willis (2014-03-14 10:10): Positive
this eyepiece corrects the image, doesn't it? (it's not gonna be reversed or mirrored right?) Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm is not erecting eyepiece so it doesn't 'correct' the image.

Shane Madden (2014-02-28 10:52): Positive
well .. It's sad. But thank you anyway! It's a lesson for the future:) as soon as I test it I will leave the feedback. Levenhuk Customer Service:
Thank you for your feedback on Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece!

Shane Madden (2014-02-27 09:27): Positive
Hello! I bought this eyepiece today. My telescope is really old (I can't find this model now: D - 100 mm, focal length is about 900 mm). Through the finderscope the image is sharp and clear, but as soon as I look through the main mirror the image becomes blurred. I suppose I've exceeded the maximum practical power of the telescope... (using 10 mm eyepiece I can see everything, but I'd like to see more detailed image) which eyepiece should I choose? https://www.levenhuk.com/products/eyepiece-levenhuk-plossl-6mm/? or Barlow lens maybe? https://www.levenhuk.com/products/acc_levenhuk_barlow_lens_2x/ Levenhuk Customer Service:
The highest practical power of your telescope is 200x. And with Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece the magnification reaches 225x. Levenhuk Plossl 6 mm - https://www.levenhuk.com/products/eyepiece-levenhuk-plossl-6mm/ will be a better choice for use with your telescope, so we recommend you to purchase it.

Tommy Stuart (2014-02-12 11:26): Positive
Can you recommend any more eyepieces? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, for example, Levenhuk Ra WA 82°, 7 mm Eyepiece - https://www.levenhuk.com/products/eyepiece-levenhuk-ra-wa-7/

Tommy Stuart (2014-02-11 10:50): Positive
Tell me please, can I expect significant difference in image quality using Levenhuk Kellner 6.3 mm Eyepiece with astromaster 90 eq telescope? Levenhuk Customer Service:
With your telescope Levenhuk Kellner 6.3 mm Eyepiece will provide 158x magnification. But it is necessary to understand that under the extreme magnifications the image loses its brightness and contrast.

Tommy Stuart (2014-02-10 01:02): Positive
Does it fit celestron astromaster 90 eq? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece doesn't suit this telescope, because telescope's highest practical power will be exceeded. We recommend you consider Levenhuk Kellner 6.3 mm Eyepiece - https://www.levenhuk.com/products/ocular-levenhuk-kellner-63/

Brett Ratliff (2013-12-30 01:19): Positive
Meade ETX-80AT-TC: if paired with built-in Barlow? 200x - it seems too much for this telescope... In the product's description 200x useful magnification is specified, although the aperture is 80... Levenhuk Customer Service:
Thank you for your feedback. You have got the wrong information, the highest practical power of your telescope is 160x and not 200x.

Brett Ratliff (2013-12-29 12:19): Positive
Does this eyepiece fit Meade ETX-80AT-TC? Will it be useful at all?? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece fits your telescope. Magnification will be 100x.

Brad Vinson (2013-12-26 11:08): Positive
Is this eyepiece suitable for Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope? What magnification will I get? Which eyepiece will provide the maximum magnification? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece is not suitable for Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope. The highest practical power is objective lens diameter multiplied by two (180x). To understand what magnification you will get with a certain eyepiece, you need to know focal length (900 mm in your case), divided by the focal length of an eyepiece (4mm) - so we obtain 225x (as you already know the highest practical power is exceeded). The same way we can calculate which eyepiece we need to get 180x. 900 divided by 180 equals 5 - therefore the correct answer is 5 mm! For example you can try Levenhuk Ra LER 5 mm Eyepiece - https://www.levenhuk.com/products/eyepiece-levenhuk-ra-ler-5/

Dean (2013-11-15 09:45): Positive
Is this eyepiece suitable for Levenhuk Strike 90 PLUS? And what the image quality will be like? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece perfectly suits the Levenhuk Strike 90 PLUS telescope, with this eyepiece you will get the magnification of 150x. The image quality will be quite good but the field of view will be less than with long focal length eyepieces.

William Cobb (2013-08-20 11:22): Positive
Is this eyepiece suitable for Levenhuk Skyline 70x700? Levenhuk Customer Service:
No, the image quality leaves much to be desired, because you exceed the highest practical power of 140x (with the eyepiece the magnification is 175x).

Erica Kurz (2013-07-20 03:21): Positive
Is this eyepiece alright for Orion Starmax 102mm? Is the focus ok? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Unfortunately, Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece isn't suitable for your telescope, because you'll exceed the highest practical power. To get one you need an eyepiece with 6.5 mm focal length.

Teri Wells (2013-07-18 07:14): Positive
What magnification do I get with this eyepiece on Celestron Travel Scope 70? Is this a good combination at all? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Plossl 4 mm Eyepiece provides 100x on Celestron Travel Scope 70. The combination is pretty good.
