Explore Scientific 100 Degree Series 5.5mm Waterproof Eyepiece - EPWP10055-01
Presenting the Explore Scientific 100° Series 5.5mm 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 apparent field of view nearing the maximum for hyper-wide eyepieces, object location becomes a breeze.
Even in non-driven telescopes, objects remain in view for an extended duration, requiring fewer adjustments.
Furthermore, these hyper-wide eyepieces facilitate a technique known as averted vision.
By gazing 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, enhancing 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 5.5mm Waterproof Eyepiece.
