Product Details

  • The 24 mm 82-Degree Waterproof Argon-Purged Eyepiece - 2" Barrel by Explore Scientific:

     

    Explore Scientific 82-degree Series eyepieces, with their 82-degree apparent field of view, immerses you in a very comfortable ultra-wide field that naturally promotes relaxation at the eyepiece. When you relax your eyes and take in the scene presented before you, it is much easier to observe for longer periods of time, and details begin to materialize that may not have become apparent to you at first glance. Another great benefit of ultra-wide eyepieces is the ease with which you can gaze, not directly at an object, but slightly to either side. This skill, called using averted vision, is especially helpful when observing faint objects, because using averted vision puts the image on a part of your eye that is more sensitive to light, allowing you to see fainter images.

     

    Explore Scientific 24 mm 82-degree Waterproof Argon-Purged Eyepiece Highlights: 


    Optimized Optical Design: Explore 82-degree Series ultra-wide eyepieces are optimized through each design, fabrication, and testing process to produce flat-field images that have high contrast and resolution.

    Exotic Glass Combinations for Optimum Results: Eyepieces are constructed of 6 or 7 lens elements (depending on focal length) that are fabricated from combinations of Dense Crown, Light Crown, Dense Flint, and Lanthanum optical glass.

    Durable Coatings & Finishing Touches: Each element in your Explore Scientific 82-degree eyepiece is fully multi-coated, resulting in bright, sharp images, and every element has blackened edges to reduce internal reflections and increase contrast.

    Waterproof, Fog-Proof Housing: The internal optics of all 82-degree Series eyepieces are housed in an argon-purged, waterproof barrel that keeps them as pristine as the day they were manufactured. Cleaning is much easier, and there is no need to worry about water or fluid becoming trapped in between elements due to rain, spills, heavy dew, or getting over-enthusiastic with lens cleaning fluid.

    Tapered Barrel for Extra Security: The insert barrel of each eyepiece is double-tapered to allow smooth insertion to, and removal from, a telescope's eyepiece holder or diagonal, however the wide dimension of the taper helps prevent the eyepiece from falling out of the telescope should the set-screw holding it in place become loose. The 2" barrel is threaded to accept standard screw-on filters.

    Wow!

    Crisp and clear view all the way to the edge. Was able to see many other moons of Jupiter. Massive eyepiece! Worthy

    Works well in f/7 refractor

    I mostly use this as a finder eyepiece in my f/7 102mm refractor. It gives a nice wide view; I can even see 95% of M31! Around the outer 10-15% there is a slight bit of coma in the stars and I suspect it would be even more so in faster scopes. This is my first Explore Scientific eyepiece and I will definitely consider buying them again.
