Plossl & Standard Telescope Eyepieces

The Plossl telescope eyepiece design consists of two sets of doublets, in a 4-element design, which provide an approximate 50-degree field of view. Although it has a relatively short eye relief, the Plossl telescope eyepiece delivers quality views of deep space and planetary subjects at all focal ratios. It remains one of the most highly regarded of all telescope eyepiece styles, and it's considered an excellent performer for all-around use.
