Explore Scientific 82 Degree Series 6.7mm Waterproof Eyepiece - EPWP8267-01
Discover the Explore Scientific 82° Series 6.7mm Waterproof Eyepiece, a versatile optic perfect for capturing planetary intricacies, even without impeccable seeing conditions typically required for higher magnifications.
When paired with larger refractors, this eyepiece often proves to be the ultimate choice under regular viewing conditions.
For instance, witness the awe-inspiring detail of Messier 1, the Crab Nebula, through our 152mm telescope.
Employed with our 127mm refractor, it perfectly frames the Dumbbell Nebula.
Even with our 80mm telescope, this eyepiece delivers remarkably detailed views at just over 100x magnification, providing ample power to discern Jupiter's clouds and reveal the core of Orion’s Nebula with clarity.
The Explore Scientific 82° Series 6.7mm Waterproof Eyepiece combines Comfort, Quality, and Value seamlessly.
Its expansive 82° apparent field of view creates a comfortably immersive ultra-wide field, fostering relaxation during observations.
By allowing your eyes to naturally take in the scene before you, extended observation periods become effortless, unveiling details that might have initially eluded notice.
Moreover, ultra-wide eyepieces facilitate the practice of averted vision, a technique particularly advantageous when observing faint celestial objects.
By slightly shifting your gaze, not directly fixating on an object, you engage a more light-sensitive part of your eye, enhancing your ability to discern even the faintest of images.
- 82° Apparent Field of View: Immerse yourself in an expansive 82-degree apparent field of view, providing a panoramic celestial vista that enhances the observation of celestial objects. This wide field of view promotes relaxation at the eyepiece, allowing for extended periods of comfortable observation.
- 6.7mm Focal Length: With a focal length of 6.7mm, this eyepiece strikes a balance between magnification and clarity. It excels at capturing planetary detail and is suitable for observations where perfect seeing conditions may not be readily available for higher magnifications.
- Planetary Detail and Nebula Observations: Ideal for observing planetary details, the 6.7mm eyepiece delivers clear and detailed views. Additionally, it proves effective for capturing the intricate features of nebulae, providing stunning visual experiences.
- Versatile Compatibility: This eyepiece complements a range of telescopes, offering outstanding performance with various apertures. Whether used with a large refractor or a smaller telescope, it delivers impressive views, making it a versatile addition to any observer's toolkit.
- Comfortable Ultra-Wide Field: The 82-degree apparent field of view creates a comfortably immersive ultra-wide field for observers. This design promotes relaxation at the eyepiece, enabling longer and more enjoyable observation sessions.
- Averted Vision Capability: Ultra-wide eyepieces like this 6.7mm model facilitate averted vision, a technique valuable for observing faint celestial objects. By slightly diverting your gaze, you engage a more light-sensitive part of your eye, enhancing your ability to detect faint details in the cosmos.
- Waterproof and Durable Construction: Engineered with waterproofing, this eyepiece is designed to withstand the elements. It is sealed to protect against moisture and debris, ensuring its reliability even in challenging observing conditions. The eyepiece is also constructed to be robust and durable, guaranteeing long-lasting performance.
- Enhanced Multi-Layer Deposition (EMD) Coatings: The eyepiece features EMD coatings, a specialized treatment process that enhances light transmission while minimizing internal reflections. This results in sharper images with heightened contrast and accurate color reproduction.
- Edge-Blackened Optics: The optics of this eyepiece undergo edge-blackening, a process that darkens the edges of the lens. This reduces internal reflections and intensifies contrast, resulting in superior image quality, particularly in scenarios with significant variations in brightness.
- Threaded Barrels for Filters: Equipped with threaded barrels, this eyepiece allows users to attach standard astronomical filters. This feature provides the flexibility to customize the viewing experience, enabling the enhancement of specific colors or the reduction of light pollution according to the observer's preferences and target object.
- Ample Eye Relief: The eyepiece offers ample eye relief, facilitating extended periods of comfortable observation. This feature is particularly beneficial for eyeglass wearers, allowing them to maintain a full field of view without the need to remove their glasses.
Included Accessories: The accessory ensemble accompanying the Explore Scientific 82° Series 6.7mm Waterproof Eyepiece includes protective eyepiece caps, comfortable soft silicone rubber eyecups, a secure eyepiece pouch/case for storage, and is complemented by a limited 1-year warranty, providing users with enhanced peace of mind.
