Explore Scientific 100 Degree Series 14mm Waterproof Eyepiece - EPWP10014-01
Introducing the extraordinary Explore Scientific 100° Series 14mm Waterproof Eyepiece - a pinnacle of comfort, quality, and value in the realm of visual astronomy.
These hyper-wide class oculars redefine your stargazing experience, offering an expansive, inky black sky that virtually dissolves the barrier between you and the universe.
With an astonishingly generous apparent field of view nearing the maximum for hyper-wide eyepieces, locating celestial objects becomes an effortless endeavor.
Even in non-driven telescopes, objects remain in view for an extended duration, necessitating fewer adjustments and allowing for prolonged, uninterrupted observation.
Furthermore, these hyper-wide eyepieces unlock the power of a technique known as averted vision.
By fixating slightly off-center rather than directly at an object, you engage a more light-sensitive area of your eye.
This proves invaluable when observing faint celestial objects, as it dramatically enhances your ability to discern even the most delicate details in the cosmos.
Embrace a new level of astronomical exploration with the Explore Scientific 100° Series 14mm Waterproof Eyepiece, where every glance unlocks a deeper understanding of the universe's wonders.
