The powerful 3.6mm eyepiece is an excellent choice for beginning astronomy enthusiasts looking for a high-power eyepiece to use with a telescope. Thanks to its high-quality glass lenses, admirable performance, and amazing value, the 3.6mm E-Series Telescope Eyepiece should be in every beginning astronomer's collection of astronomy gear.
With a 3.6mm focal length and 1.25" barrel diameter, this E-Series Telescope Eyepiece will yield high-power views in any telescope. Ideal for close inspection of craters and mountains on the Moon, and for highly magnified views of planets such as Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. You'll be amazed with clear views of Saturn and its rings on clear evenings, as well as Jupiter's stormy cloud bands and four closest moons Io, Ganymede, Europa, and Callisto. You can even go after challenging double stars with this powerful 3.6mm eyepiece.
The Orion 3.6mm E-Series Telescope Eyepiece features fully coated optics with anti-reflection coating. This coating allows more light to pass through the eyepiece so you are rewarded with a bright, detailed view. The eyepiece barrel is internally blackened to reduce glare. Both the full optical coating and blackened barrel work together to minimize internal reflections, also called ghost images which can adversely affect view quality.
Since the 3.6mm E-Series Telescope Eyepiece is threaded for use with 1.25" Orion filters, it's easy to enhance your views using optional eyepiece filters such as our popular Moon Filter and light pollution fighting filters. All eyepiece filters are sold separately.
