Omegon Eyepiece Cronus WA 6 mm: Blurry and bad qualityReview by R. S. on 23.10.2021 22:08:48

Ordered this Omegon Eyepiece Cronus WA 6 mm, but the result is very bad. For a cost of 59 euros, this is a steal.
The image of this eyepiece is blurry, I cannot see any details of the planets, just a faint image. Jupiter rings: just a shadow, Saturn rings: a faint image it is.
I have tried this eyepiece in 2 different telescopes: Bresser Pollux 150/1400 Newtonian and Bresser Maksutov Cassegrain 152/1900 (from a friend). 2 quality telescopes, specially the latest one. The result is the same of this eyepiece: blurry and low quality definition. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? The telescopes are good quality specially the MC 152. Under clear sky conditions ( I have tested it for 3 weeks now)
By comparisason: very cheap Kelner eyepiece 4 mm (15 euros), much better definition. Bresser Super Plossl 26 mm (40 euros) eyepiece: small image but the resolution is EXCELLENT in comparision. I can see the Saturn rings clearly and the Jupiter colors, I can almost see the Big Red Spot with the Bresser.
This Omegon Cronus WA 6 mm eyepiece is not producing good results. Bad quality and bad results, keep your hands off this eyepiece. Don't waste your money, don't buy this.

the 6mm eyepiece leads to a very high magnification at these telescopes. If the sky conditions are less than perfect (which is the regualar case) a blurry image is somehow normal. A defect of the eyepiece is possible, too but unlikely. Either way, please contact our customer service and we can exchange the eyepiece or you may return it. We would be also happy to help by findind an alternative eyepiece for you.
