Product Details

Standard eyepieces provide sharp, pinpoint star images at the center of the field but as you look out toward the edges, stars often begin to get blurred and out of focus. Eliminating this distortion usually calls for expensive optical designs with additional lens elements to eliminate the field curvature. But these new BST eyepieces use a 5 or 6 element design that offers a flat field over the entire field of view at an attractive price.

Featuring large eye lenses, wide fields of view (from 53°-65°), and generous eye relief (from 9.6mm-24.4mm), these eyepieces are a pleasure to use. Fully multicoated lenses maximize light transmission and edge blackening of all lens elements ensures excellent contrast. Other features include safety recess grooves on the 1.25" barrels, standard 1.25" filter threads, and twist-up eyecups.
