William Optics 40mm Swan Eyepiece - 2"
The Swan eyepieces are super wide angle designs with 72-degree apparent field of view. They use simple but sophisticated five-lens optical systems for generally higher contrast than the more complicated optical designs used in some other super wide angle eyepieces that use up to eight lenses. All lenses are fully multi-coated for high light transmission. Lens edges and internal field stops are blackened to reduce internal reflections and improve contrast. The eyepiece rubber grip ring is useful for safer handling of the heavier 2-inch eyepieces in cold weather when wearing gloves. The eyepieces have soft roll down rubber eyecups for eyeglass use. They can be used for all types of observing, both day and night!
The William Optics SWAN 40 mm Eyepiece has soft roll down rubber eyecups for eyeglass use. They can be used for all types of observing, with all telescope types, but they are recommended for use with focal ratios up to f/6 and above. Dust caps are provided for both ends of each eyepiece.
This 4-element super-wide angle 40 mm SWAN EP's panoramic views at 72 deg. F.O.V. will leave you speechless!

Very good 2" 40mm EP
This was my first buy of a Williams Optics EP. I was a little anxious about quality given the low price. I can tell you that this is an excellent EP providing wide sharp crisp views. I highly recommend this EP. As an aside - it also looks great with excellent build quality.
This eyepiece was purchased to give my new edge hd 8 a wide field for low power viewing(at least more than my Q70 32mm)wow!!This should be the first upgrade for SCT telescopes along with 2 inch diagonal.Clarity and sharpness and depth of field is on par with my Tele vue Delos 17.3 of course with a wider field of view.A must have eyepiece!!!!
I purchased this eyepiece in April 2018 and absolutely love it! Superb optical quality to say the least. I have an 8se, a SW Pro 100 ED, and a Parallax 14.5 Newtonian and it is without a doubt my favorite eyepiece, especially with the 14.5. I find myself slewing from one star cluster to the next all night long.
SWAN 40mm 2''
Es un ocular optimo para focales de F5 en adelante y con calidad buena en la mayor parte del campo. Apenas un 5% puede contener defectos claros en mi F6.
