Product Description

Explore Scientific Waterproof Eyepieces - Comfort, Quality, Value. The Explore Scientific 62° Series™ eyepieces are excellent flat-field multi-element oculars that can transform your visual astronomy experience. With an apparent field of view of 62 degrees and near par focal design, these eyepieces offer incredible value in a very nice eyepiece. 

Another great benefit of these eyepieces is the excellent contrast and ease with which you can gaze, not directly at an object, but slightly to either side. This skill, called using averted vision, is especially helpful when observing faint objects, because using averted vision puts the image on a part of your eye that is more sensitive to light, allowing you to see fainter images.

Review by:
The 32mm ES62 is not perfect but has many excellent qualities. The only flaw in this eyepiece is that it is not sharp to the field stop. In my 120mm f/7.5 APO star images start to lose sharpness in the outer 30% of the field. However, unlike many low cost, long focal length eyepieces the star images do not for curved lines so the falloff in sharpness is not an aesthetic distraction. The positive qualities of this eyepiece include: (1) very comfortable and easy eye placement, (2) sharp field stop, (3) clean and evenly illuminated sky background, (4) very sharp central field, (5) excellent transmission, (6) light weight.

The 32mm has been useful for all types of deep sky objects and low magnification lunar viewing. With the 120ED APO it provides high contrast views of the Milky Way, nebula, dark nebula, and large open clusters. (Posted on 11/17/2018)
