EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 12MM 92º ARGON PURGED EYEPIECE - 2"
This Explore Scientific 92 degree LE series Waterproof eyepiece provide many things- a hyper wide field of view, long eye relief for comfortable viewing, and generally high class optics that are of a high quality; the hyper-wide field of view allowing you to gaze at the massive expanse of the sky and drink in all the glory of a closer look at the heavens.
These Explore Scientific 92 degree eyepieces are all hyper-wide class oculars; capable of absolutely transforming your visual astronomy experience! You may indeed be startled by just how wide the expanse of the night sky will appear the first time you bring your eye to one of these eyepieces- beholding the sea of stars in all it's majesty at a glance. After long enough, it's possible to forget there is anything between you and the raw glory of the universe- the comfortable field of view permitting an ease of viewing that makes it simple to dismiss distractions, and simply soak in the beautiful view of the cosmos. What is more, the apparent field of view on this model is close to the maximum possible for hyper-wide eyepiece design- making objects not only easier to locate, but also that objects will stay in the field of view for a long time before you need to start adjusting.
Furthermore, the hyper-wide eyepieces also grant the benefit of it being relatively easy to gaze slightly to either side of an object rather than directly at it. This method- averted vision- is especially helpful when observing faint objects, because it puts the image on a part of your eye that is more sensitive to light, allowing you to accurately perceive the fainter images.
