Product Description

Looking for something out of the ordinary for your next eyepiece?  The Explore Scientific 52° series is a strong contender for necessary addition to your eyepiece collection.  It's long 15mm of  eye relief makes it a joy to put in your scope night after night.

Designed for high-power on-axis observations, the Explore Scientific 3mm 52° Series Waterproof Eyepiece is fully EMD (Enhanced Multi-Layer Deposition) Coated with edge blackened lenses providing the contrast required for serious high-power observing of planets, close-paired double stars, and bright compact deep sky objects. With a flat apparent field of view of 52 degrees, these eyepieces offer incredible value.

While some might question the need for Argon-Purged waterproof eyepieces, it is a nice concept knowing the inside of your eyepiece will be just as perfect as the day it left the assembly line.  No need to worry about dust, or cleaning solution, finding its way inside the elements.  These eyepieces are designed to be used night after night giving you complete peace of mind about their performance.

This is my goto for planets , stars and lunar detail when there is good seeing. I have been amazed many times at what is really there but you just could not see it without a good sky and eyepiece. Don't get to use it everytime but its always with me for when I can! (Posted on 10/25/2019)
