Elite Plossls

These premium Plossls offer the observer the ultimate in contrast. Superior lens polishing with multi-coating on all internal air-glass surfaces, these eyepieces provide orthoscopic-type definition with the added luxury of a 52 degree apparent field. In this regard, the extra field makes them more useable as an all-around eyepiece. Planets, as well as illusive nebulosities and clusters will be presented with dazzling detail. Standard features include 5 or 7 element designs with premium, fully multicoated, edge blackedned optics, engraved lettering, slip-on eyeshield and standard filter threaded barrels. The result: Ultra-crisp imaging. In our tests these eyepieces have never been beaten at what they do. Get the set and the aluminum case is included. For the discerning observer.
   
Classic Erfles

The 6-Element Erfle has a renowned reputation for providing wide, expansive, flat-field images. If your telescope has a 2" focuser, these eyepieces will deliver crisp, high contrast and stunningly wide views of the heavens. Standard features include 2" barrels threaded for standard filters, fully mulit-coated design, edge blackened lenses, rubber grips and fold-down rubber eyeshield. All models have luxurious eye relief and have apparent fields of 65 degrees. If you have high F-ratio, the Erfle 32mm is available with 70 degrees. If that isn't enough, get the 8-element Modified Erfle 300mm: just about the widest view possible with the 2" format. Get any three of them and the aluminum case is included.
   
Antares W70 Series

The W70 series eyepieces offer extra field and extra eye relief without sacrificing image quality. Many observers don't like having their eye too close to the eyepiece, on average, the W70 series oculars have an eye relief of 15mm. Combine that with a wide apparent field of view and you have eyepieces that are very comfortable and nice to use. Larger clusters and nebulosities will now easily fit into your field of view at higher magnification, and your eyeball won't be pressed up against the glass. Standard features include multi-coating, fold-down rubber eyeshield, rubber grips, standard filter threaded barrels and edge-blacked lenses. Get the set and get the aluminum case included.

With a wide 52 degrees of apparent field, the Antares Plossls provide clear, crisp images with outstanding contrast. There are many focal Lengths available and each features precision optics with all four faces multicoated and edge blackening for the maximum possible contrast. Fold-down rubber eyeshields and barrels threaded for standard filters are included. If you compare the features found with Antares Plossls, you must agree that they are an outstanding value.
