Takahashi 7.5mm ED LE Eyepiece - 1.25"
Takahashi 7.5mm 1.25" LE Series Eyepiece
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.

I purchased this eyepeice about a year in a set along with a PENTAX 10mm WF. The first opportunity I had, I used them both on the same night's viewing. I had purchased this eyepeice to blend in with my Tele-Vue 9 & 4.8mm Nagler eyepeices as the middle range for this group. I was very impressed with it's flat field of view and edge to edge sharpness**** Very good. I had to look at the moon for a week or so because of its phase, but during the new moon I enjoyed a slide-show of deep-sky objects with low to medium surface brightness. I should also add that the views of the moon were absolutely fantastic.. especially near the terminator. I specifically purchased this eyepeice for deep sky viewing without the downside of trading off resolving power and viewing detail. This TAKAHASHI 7.5mm is a great addition to my high power eyepeice collection. I use it with my Celestron C8 & C14 :
