Omegon super Ploessl

A classic - and probably the most inexpensive way of getting a sharp image

Super Ploessl eyepieces are among the most inexpensive available and are true classics. Generations of amateur astronomers have used them for successful astronomy. The ingenious design employs only 5 lenses, but provides a clear and bright image. These are the eyepieces for those who want quality but do not need expensive high-end eyepieces.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • a quality eyepiece - providing a better image than those that come included with new telescopes
  • 52 degree field of view (45° for the 40mm) - significantly wider than Kellner and standard Ploessl eyepieces
  • multi-coating and blackened lens edges for high contrast
  • 1.25" connector - the eyepieces will fit in any telescope
  • rubber fold-down eyecups to protect against stray light

52° field of view - so it is not like 'looking through a tunnel'

Super Ploessl eyepieces are a plus for your observing because, in comparison to cheap standard eyepieces, they have a wider, 52 degree, field of view. You observe as through a large window and it also means that you can see more detail.

Blackened lens edges - more contrast with bright and faint objects

When observing with a telescope, it really all comes down to good quality eyepieces - these are just as important as the telescope itself. They decide whether you can make out the fine spiral arms of M51, or make out a minor planet that is right at the performance limit of the telescope. They reduce reflections even when observing bright objects.

The lens edges of these Super Ploessl eyepieces have been blackened to ensure they provide good contrast. Light does not get 'lost on the way', but goes to exactly where it should - into your eye.

A large range of focal lengths - from 4mm to 40mm

These eyepieces provide you with a range of 9 focal lengths. So you are guaranteed to find the right magnification and increments for your telescope. And the best part - all the eyepieces are parfocal.

Customer reviews

Quite good eyepiece

I have to admit that I as a little bit comprehensive about the quality at start, but now that I have it and have looked at the Moon, Jupiter, Mars and Saturn with my 200/1200 dobsonian, I am frankly amazed by the sharpness this eyepiece delivers for the price that it has. Very good build quality too, no plastic, very sturdy feel. Don't hesitate about it, at the end of the day it's just 35 EUR!!! If I would've know how good these series were I would've purchased all of my focal lengths as this one, they even are parfocal and with 52 degrees of apparent view, not to mention that it is fully coated ... I have another 10 and 25 mm Orion Sirius Plossls. It's not that they are not good, both orion and omegon deliver good sharp image, but they orion are more expensive, have only 4 elements and don't feel as sturdy. Whereas this one has 5 elements and feels better. Simply - amazing product!

Excellent quality

I only recently started my astronomy journey. I purchased a Celestron StarSense 70mm refractor to help me get started. That telescope comes with 10mm and 25 mm eyepieces, they allowed me to view jupiter and saturn on my first night out! So i started looking for a new eyepiece between those 2 magnifications. There are alot of youtube video's out there and blogs where they say that upgrading to Plössl eyepieces is the best way to improve image quality. And I am really impressed with the quality of this eyepiece, and i can definitely see its alot better then the eyepieces that are shippped with the telescope. I might even replace the 10 and 25 mm as well.

There is one downside to Plössl eyepieces. And here i quote one of those blogs that I read.

On the downside, Plössls, especially at shorter focal lengths, suffer from short eye relief – a measure of how close to the eyepiece you have to place your eye to see the full feld of view.”

This means that if you wear glasses while stargazing, than this eyepiece might nog be for you.
