Takahashi 2.8mm ED LE Eyepiece - 1.25" - Disctontinued -
The Takahashi LE Series Eyepiece produces images that live up to the Takahashi name... A name that has become synonymous with terms like "quality" and "precision" in today's amateur astronomy market. Each eyepiece is parfocal, which means little or no re-focusing when changing eyepieces. The five element Erfle design means an excellent 52 degree apparent field of view and equally excellent eye relief on all models but the high magnification 2.8mm and 3.6mm.
The higher magnification eyepieces in the line (2.8, 3.6, 5, and 7.5mm) use ED (extra low dispersion) glass for the best color correction. This is really a bonus when observing planets! All are fully multi-coated for ultimate light transmission. These qualities combine to enhance the viewing through your telescope as well as allow you a comfortable viewing session, even if you wear eyeglasses.
This eyepiece gives 175x in my Stellarvue 80mm apo, the limit of what it can deliver, an it is a sharp image!. Enough eye relief for me, comfortable eyepiece.
Possiedo due oculari HI LE Takahshi, fra tutti gli altri oculari che ho provato Radian Televue, celestron ultima, ***** Lantanio, ploos televue, quelli HI LE tak sono i migliori nel colore e nella saturazione dell'immagine rendono l'immagine piacevole e vellutata.
Tak LE against all
I have Celestron, Meade, Televue and Baader eyepieces, but only the Takahashi boosts excelent in contrast, resolution, sharpness and no distortion all the field, may the Baader geniune Orthoscopic have the entire field with no distortion but contrast is better in Takahahsi LE. For test I use my Stellarvue 102 ED ( another good value for the money
