What is the difference between a 2 inch and 1.25 inch eyepiece?

2 inch eyepieces provide a larger field of view and a wider exit pupil that allows more light to enter the eye resulting in a brighter image. They also offer more magnification options than 1.25 inch eyepieces, allowing for more detailed views of celestial objects such as nebula or distant galaxies.

What are the benefits of using a 2 inch eyepiece?

They make large objects such as double stars, binary star systems and galaxies appear brighter and more detailed. 2 inch telescope eyepieces reduce aberration while increasing the true field of view. This helps ensure images remain clear and crisp even when magnified, which can lead to sharper details in deep sky viewing.
