The Vixen SLV series is the modern take on the classic Vixen Lanthanum eyepieces. These eyepieces were legendary for their generous eye relief and precise nature, making them a firm favorite with planetary, lunar, and double-star observers. This 9mm is an excellent higher power eyepiece on shorter focal length telescopes, especially good for Lunar viewing - or for those trying to max out their longer focal length scopes for double star work.
The SLV Series of Vixen Eyepieces feature a hexagonal-shaped eyepiece barrel, long 20mm eye relief, and twist-up click-stop eyecup for adjusting to the most comfortable viewing. The SLV eyepieces feature high-grade lanthanum glass and deliver remarkably clear and high-contrast star images to the edge of the viewing circle. The lenses are fully multicoated for high-light transmission.
