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.

The longest focal length in the 52° Series with the longest eye relief, the 40mm is also the only 2.0-inch O.D. eyepiece in this series. Explore Scientific now has three 40mm eyepieces in its collection, the other two are the 40mm 62° Series, and the 40mm 68° Series. At this focal length, this eyepiece is generally reserved for deep sky observers who challenge themselves to observe near the faintest observable limit of their telescopes. The huge true field of view is perfect for deep sky objects like the Andromeda Galaxy, the Rosette Nebula, as well as large star clusters, and comets.

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.
