Features:

  • 82° Apparent Field of View: The Explore Scientific 82° Series 6.5mm LER Waterproof Eyepiece offers an exceptionally wide apparent field of view, providing observers with a sweeping and immersive visual experience. This expansive field of view allows for a more comprehensive observation of celestial objects, enabling users to take in larger portions of the night sky in a single frame.
  • 6.5mm Focal Length: With a focal length of 6.5mm, this eyepiece is optimized for high magnification observations. This makes it particularly well-suited for scrutinizing objects such as the Moon, planets, and binary stars. It can reveal intricate details and structures, especially under favorable atmospheric conditions.
  • Long Eye Relief (LER) - 16.8mm: The eyepiece boasts an impressively long eye relief of 16.8mm, ensuring a comfortable viewing experience for all observers, including those who wear eyeglasses. This generous eye relief allows users to enjoy the full field of view without straining their eyes.
  • Argon-Purged Waterproof Design: This eyepiece is designed with an argon-purged, waterproof construction, providing exceptional durability and making it suitable for a wide range of weather conditions. The argon gas filling prevents internal fogging and safeguards the optical elements from contaminants, ensuring consistent performance over time.
  • Low-Dispersion Glass with High Refractive Index: The eyepiece features optical elements crafted from low-dispersion glass with a high refractive index. This construction enhances light transmission and minimizes chromatic aberration, resulting in clear, high-contrast images with true color representation.
  • Enhanced Multi-Layer Deposition (EMD) Coatings: Each lens surface is fully multi-coated with durable EMD coatings. These coatings optimize light transmission, reduce reflections, and maximize contrast, delivering vivid and high-resolution images of celestial wonders.
  • Ultra-Wide Apparent Field Promotes Relaxation: The eyepiece features an ultra-wide 82° apparent field of view, immersing observers in the cosmos. This expansive field of view naturally promotes relaxation at the eyepiece, allowing for prolonged and comfortable observations.
  • Facilitates Averted Vision: The wide field of view encourages the use of averted vision, a technique where observers look slightly to the side of a target object rather than directly at it. This is particularly helpful for observing faint objects, as it directs the image onto a more light-sensitive part of the eye, revealing previously unseen details.
  • Gas-Purged and O-Ring Sealed: The eyepiece undergoes gas-purging and is O-ring sealed, creating a waterproof environment that is impervious to internal fogging and prevents contaminants from entering the eyepiece housing. This design makes cleaning and maintenance of the eyepiece effortless.
  • Included Accessories: The accessory set accompanying the Explore Scientific 82° Series 6.5mm LER Waterproof Eyepiece comprises protective eyepiece caps, comfortable soft silicone rubber eyecups, a secure eyepiece pouch/case for storage, and is accompanied by a limited 1-year warranty, ensuring enhanced peace of mind for users.
