Product Description

This is a good quality medium high to high power eyepiece (the power depends on the focal length of your scope). It is designed for observing lunar and planetary detail, resolving globular clusters, picking up small planetary nebulas against a stellar background, etc. It is especially well suited to Schmidt-Cassegrains, where it provides very close to the 1mm exit pupil recommended for maximum sharpness in observing lunar and planetary details. It is parfocal with other Series 4000 eyepieces except the 14mm UWA, 32mm and 40mm SWA, and 40mm and 56mm Plössls. It will work well with any telescope type, at any focal ratio. It has a rather short eye relief that will definitely limit the field for eyeglass wearers. Those who must wear eyeglasses while observing due to severe astigmatism would probably be better off using a Barlow and a longer focal length eyepiece with longer eye relief to reach this focal length, rather than buying this eyepiece for use on its own.

Review by:
I have owned nearly every series 4000 eyepiece and they are a great value for the money. the 9.7mm worked extremely well for planetary viewing. If you're just starting out, they are a great value. I mostly used the 40, 26 and 20mm eyepieces but the higher powered ones from 15MM up perform very well. Used them mostly on a C9.25 and a Meade 8" LX200. If you need multiple eyepieces, buy the series 4000 set and save some money. Used this eyepiece for many years before I upgraded to TeleVue and series 5000. the price /performance ratio is worth the cost. (Posted on 12/3/2018)
