ES 14mm 82
Excellent quality and value
ES 14mm 82 deg
This a decent EP for the money, in a 12.5" F-5 reflector the ES 14mm 82 was a bit dimmer but sharper than a ES 16mm 68 deg. for edge sharpness. I still prefer some of my plossil eyepieces for best image quality. If the added FOV is not sharp and coma free it is of less use. I am more satisfied with the ES 14mm 82 deg in a 80mm F-6 ED refractor
I've wanted a nice wide-field EP for a long time now. And after doing some research, I decided on the 82' / 14mm from Explore Scientific. The very first night I used it, I was floored. It was pretty clear that this EP was a "winner". Not only does it offer great optics, and a wide FOV, but, the views were truly amazing. I can honestly say that this EP is just about "on par" with my 24mm TeleVue Panoptic, in terms of overall quality of views (Extremely sharp & crisp from edge to edge) and you can't beat the price! At $100 bucks, it's an incredible value, and one of the best EP purchases I've ever made. I'm glad that I decided on this particular EP, and my only regret is that I didn't buy it sooner. The only "Con" to speak of (maybe for some people) is that it's a large EP. You know, one of those "Hand Grenade" type of EP's, but, that doesn't bother me. I'll deal with a large EP, as long as it performs well. "Pros"? It's a no brainer! Great price, good eye relief, awesome quality glass, and it offers extremely sharp views. The views of Jupiter, and the star clusters I've viewed thus far, were amazing. Yeah, this EP gets a solid "Two Thumbs Up" from me! BTW: Scope used: Celestron 6SE SCT "Goto"
Ideal for deepsky
This eyepiece performed very well on my scope ! Sharp edge to edge view, great 82 degree field, comfortable eye relief. Highly recommended !
