Product Info

Manufacturer Description

Agena Closeout - Brand new in box. Just 1 piece left. No winged eyeguard. Final sale - no returns please.

These premium Japanese made Antares Plossls offer the observer the ultimate in contrast. With 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 usable as an all-around eyepiece. Planets, as well as elusive nebulosities and clusters will be presented with dazzling detail. Standard features include 5 or 7 element designs with premium, fully multicoated, edge blackened optics, engraved lettering, and standard filter threaded barrels. The result: Ultra-crisp imaging. In Antares' tests, these eyepieces have never been beaten at what they do. For the discerning observer.

      4.0 It's pretty much the only choice.


      Strong Construction,Compact



      This is pretty much the only choice for reticle eyepieces and for finder scopes. And it is only available here. I did purchase another brand a while back that had a flashing feature but it was big, bulky, and broke after first use.

      It would be nice for these things to turn off automatically after a few hours of non use. I just can't seem to remember to turn them off and I'm always replacing batteries.

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
      Was this review helpful? Yes / No
