Explore Scientific 3mm 52° 1.25-inch O.D. Argon-Purged Eyepiece

 The 3mm Explore Scientific 52° was designed for high-power on-axis observations of planets, close-paired double stars, and bright compact deep sky objects.

The 52°-series eyepiece features a standard 1.25" barrel to make it compatible with the most popular size drawtubes and accessories.

Features:
  • EMD anti-reflective multi-coatings ensure bright, high-contrast images with true color transmission across the entire wide field of view.
  • Great for viewing celestial objects by using averted vision
  • The fold-down rubber eyecup prevents stray light from leaking into the eye, further boosting contrast.
  • The eyepiece is internally sealed and purged with inert, dry argon gas, which maximizes the life of its internal coatings.
  • The eyepiece is tested by submerging it down to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes.
  • Fully multi-coated and edge-blackened to produce maximum contrast.
