Orion 17mm Stratus Wide-Field Eyepiece - 1.25" / 2"

Orion 17 mm Stratus Wide-Field Telescope Eyepiece

Enjoy a wide-field window into the heavens, served up by Stratus eyepieces. With an apparent field of 68-degrees, which translates to a 71-percent greater viewing area than that of a typical Plossl, Stratus eyepieces quite literally put more stars in your eyes. In the same way you feel more a part of the action watching a big-screen TV, with Stratus you will feel like you are really experiencing your celestial targets, rather than just viewing them from afar.

Each ocular features a monster 1.25-inch diameter eye lens to look into. Each also has a generous 20 mm of eye relief, so you'll get the "big picture" even if you wear eyeglasses. The optics are fully multi-coated to maximize light transmission to your eyes, and the lens edges are blackened to ensure excellent contrast.

Stratus eyepieces fit in both 1.25-inch and 2-inch focusers. Each is threaded for filters and comes with protective lens caps.
