Explore Scientific 68 Degree Series 24mm Waterproof Eyepiece - EPWP6824-01

Presenting the Explore Scientific 68° Series 24mm Waterproof Eyepiece, featuring robust multilayer deposition coatings for unparalleled contrast, resolution, and a remarkably even field.

Boasting a wide 68° apparent field and generous eye relief, this eyepiece offers an immersive viewing encounter.

Designed to maintain parfocality across diverse focal lengths, it also includes a removable, foldable silicone rubber eyecup for observer comfort.

Experienced astronomers understand the pivotal role eye comfort plays when pushing the boundaries of visual observation with a telescope.

Crafted for outdoor resilience, the eyepiece body is Argon-purged, ensuring the internal elements remain as pristine as the day they were assembled.

Argon, with its larger atomic size compared to Nitrogen, provides a superior seal that minimizes leakage and diffusion over the eyepiece's lifespan.

Its inert nature prevents unwanted reactions with eyepiece components, extending their longevity and protecting against chemical interactions with potential contaminants.

Additionally, Argon's lower thermal conductivity means it absorbs heat at a slower rate, buffering against rapid temperature changes in the optics.

This sealed environment effectively prevents internal fogging and the growth of contaminants like fungus between lens elements.

Cleaning is a breeze, without the risk of cleaning solution seeping between elements. To ensure an impeccable seal, each eyepiece undergoes rigorous testing in one meter of water for 30 minutes.

Elevate your stargazing experience with the Explore Scientific 68° Series 24mm Waterproof Eyepiece.



  • 68° Field of View: This eyepiece provides an expansive 68° apparent field of view, immersing observers in the night sky. Particularly advantageous for observing large celestial objects and capturing panoramic views, it offers a wide, immersive perspective of celestial landscapes.
  • 24mm Focal Length: With a versatile 24mm focal length, this eyepiece caters to a broad range of celestial objects and astronomical observations. Its adaptable viewing experience makes it suitable for various astronomical pursuits.
  • Advanced Optical Design: The eyepiece integrates state-of-the-art computer-designed optics, utilizing a blend of low dispersion and high refractive index optical glasses. This results in exceptional image quality with minimized chromatic aberration and improved color fidelity.
  • Durable Multilayer Deposition Coatings: Equipped with robust multilayer deposition coatings, the eyepiece optimizes light transmission, diminishes internal reflections, and enhances contrast. This ensures clear, crisp views of celestial wonders.
  • Argon-Purged for Waterproofing: Argon-purged, this eyepiece establishes a sealed environment that shields internal elements from environmental factors. This safeguards against fogging, even in damp conditions, ensuring continued clarity during observations.
  • High Contrast and Resolution: The eyepiece is meticulously optimized to deliver high contrast and resolution, enabling detailed scrutiny of celestial objects. This feature proves invaluable for discerning fine details on the lunar surface, planets, and deep-sky entities.
  • Superior Flat Field Characteristics: Designed to uphold exceptional flat field characteristics, stars remain sharp and pinpoint across the entire field of view. This attribute is especially valuable for astrophotography and detailed visual observations.
  • Long Eye Relief: Offering generous eye relief, this eyepiece guarantees comfort during extended viewing sessions. This is particularly appreciated by eyeglass-wearing observers, allowing for extended viewing without excessive eye strain.
  • Parfocal Design: The eyepiece maintains focus near the same point across different focal lengths. This parfocal design streamlines the observing process, facilitating seamless transitions between eyepieces without frequent refocusing.
  • Soft Silicone Rubber Eyecup: Featuring a removable and foldable soft silicone rubber eyecup, this eyepiece enhances comfort during extended observations. It provides a cushioned interface between the observer's eye and the eyepiece, reducing fatigue.
  • Argon vs. Nitrogen Purging: Argon, with its larger atom size, offers superior sealing properties, minimizing the risk of leakage over time. Additionally, its inert nature prevents adverse reactions with eyepiece components, extending the lifespan of internal elements.
  • Resilience to Temperature Changes: Argon's lower thermal conductivity ensures slower heat absorption, buffering against rapid temperature fluctuations. This feature helps maintain stable optical performance, even in environments with varying temperatures.
  • Rigorous Water Testing: Each eyepiece undergoes thorough testing in one meter of water for 30 minutes to ensure a perfect seal, providing added confidence in its waterproofing capabilities.
  • Included Accessories: Included in the Explore Scientific 68° Series 24mm Waterproof Eyepiece package are protective eyepiece caps, comfortable soft silicone rubber eyecups, a secure eyepiece pouch/case for storage, and a limited 1-year warranty for added peace of mind.

Objects are ultra clear and bright. Great for spiral galaxies, nebulae and starclusters. It is well made and feels solid. I read a ton of reviews on astronomy forums for eyepieces and decided on this one. It is worth the $200 I spent for this eyepiece I'm glad I purchased it. Before I used a 25mm sirius plossel, this is quite a bit better. Thanks Red carpet it was in stock and very fast shipping a very easy transaction.
