When it comes to visual Astronomy, a good eyepiece is one of the most important accessories you can have to ensure a sharp unobstructed view through the telescope. In fact a good quality eyepiece can really enhance your whole experience by providing you with an almost 3D sensation when viewing the expanse of space.
Enjoy the unique combination of excellent edge-to-edge image quality even with fast optics, as well as excellent contrast and unmatched observation comfort. These eyepieces incorporate a wide variety of modern glass materials, manufactured to the highest standards, something which has been a long tradition at Explore Scientific.
The fold-down eyecups also allow optimal user comfort, especially when wearing glasses. The patented "EMD" coating in addition with internal apertures ensure a high contrast view and avoids internal reflections. The Argon filling effectively prevents fogging from the inside, and as they are completely sealed, they are well protected internally from dust, glass fungus or the ingress of cleaning liquid. This guarantees that they will enjoy these high-quality eyepieces for many years and countless observations.
All eyepieces in the 68° collection are homofocal - (i.e they require very little change in telescope focus when swapping the eyepiece for a different focal length)
Focal length: 16mm
Field of view: 68° apparent field of view
Connection to the telescope side: 1.25" barrel with filter thread
