Explore Scientific 82° 6.7mm Eyepiece - 1.25"
Explore Scientific 1.25" 82° Series Argon-Purged Waterproof Eyepiece - 6.7 mm
Explore Scientific 82° Series eyepieces, with their 82 degree apparent field of view, immerses you in a very comfortable ultra-wide field that naturally promotes relaxation at the eyepiece. When you relax your eyes and take in the scene presented before you, it is much easier to observe for longer periods of time, and details begin to materialize that may not have become apparent to you at first glance. Another great benefit of ultra-wide eyepieces is the ease with which you can gaze, not directly at an object, but slightly to either side. This skill, called using averted vision, is especially helpful when observing faint objects, because using averted vision puts the image on a part of your eye that is more sensitive to light, allowing you to see fainter images.
Waterproof Eyepieces Are Easy to Clean and Protect the Internal Lens Elements
All Explore Scientific Waterproof Eyepieces are gas-purged and O-ring sealed which makes them very easy to clean. You can even place them under running water and use generous amounts of lens cleaning solutions to remove stubborn layers (and sometimes sticky) of materials that nature and humans often subject eyepieces to. You can also leave the eyepieces out overnight without fear of them fogging up between the lens elements.
