Explore Scientific 82 Degree Series 24mm Waterproof Eyepiece - EPWP8224-01

Introducing the Explore Scientific 82° Series 24mm Waterproof Eyepiece.

This Argon-Purged ocular offers a sought-after focal length, delivering both a super-wide apparent field and ample eye relief.

Ideal for applications demanding higher power, it excels in observing star clusters, nebulae, comets, planets, and even solar regions (with proper filtration).

Compatible with Explore Scientific Focal Extenders for magnification boosts while preserving field of view and eye relief.

Crafted through advanced computer design, combining low dispersion and high refractive index optics, and fortified with durable enhanced multilayer deposition (EMD) coatings, the 82° Series ensures superior contrast, resolution, and a flat field.

This immersive experience, with extended eye relief and an expansive field, facilitates a relaxed gaze, enabling the averted vision technique for discerning faint details across a wide expanse.

Every eyepiece undergoes meticulous assembly within precisely machined metal lens barrels to maintain optical alignment for enduring field use.
