The inexpensive 2" eyepiece - takes in a large section of night sky for observing extended objects
Who does not want to be able to see a big section of the night sky when observing? - to be able to take in the spiral arms of a large galaxy or the vast expanses of the Veil nebula? The Omegon Super Ploessl makes all this, and more, possible. And at a fantastically low price.
The advantages in a nutshell:
- 56mm focal length for low magnifications and an excellent overview
- blackened lens edges and rubber eyecup for increased contrast
- 52 degree field of view - enjoy observing a large section of the night sky
- high light transmission - only 4 lenses in the eyepiece body
- multi-coating to prevent unwanted reflections
- 2" eyepiece with 2" filter thread
- a high performance at a low price
Like a picture window into space
A completetly free view of the night sky. Unlimited. Well, almost. This is provided by the new Omegon Super Ploessl 56mm eyepiece. It is achieved by the combination of the large format 2" design with an extremely long 56mm focal length. One particular advantage - the low magnification means this eyepiece is also great for locating faint objects.
Also suitable for long focal length telescopes
With long focal length telescopes, there is little choice if you want low magnification. But how to still have a wide field of view? This has been achieved with the Omegon Ploessl 56mm eyepiece. For example, with a 2000mm focal length Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope you can enjoy observing a huge 1.5° section of the night sky. In other words a field of view three full Moons across!
Sharp right out to the edge of the field of view for full observing enjoyment
One of the particular strengths of this eyepiece is its extremely good edge sharpness. The field of view is nice and flat right out the edge. And if you want to check it out for chromatic aberration, you will probably have to keep looking a long time. Isn't that just great?
A good view is - everything in sight
With 21mm of eye relief, the eyepiece provides extremely comfortable viewing. It means that you can still enjoy the whole field of view even when wearing glasses. And, finally, you can see the entire field of view without any annoying moving your eye around.
Blackened lens edges - more contrast with bright and with faint objects
High quality observing with a telescope all comes down to using good quality eyepieces - these are just as important as the telescope itself. They decide whether you can see the fine spiral arms of M51, and be able to make out a minor planet that is right at the telescope's performance limit. They even reduce annoying internal reflections when observing bright objects.
The edges of the lens elements in Omegon Super Ploessl eyepieces have been blackened in order to provide good contrast. The light does not 'get lost' on the way, but reaches exactly where it should - your eye.
Rubber eyecups to prevent stray light
Each Omegon Ploessl eyepiece comes equipped with a soft rubber eyecup. These prevent any stray light entering from the side. You also benefit from more comfortable observing and a significant contrast enhancement.
