Explore Scientific 4.5mm 82° Series LER Waterproof Eyepiece EPWP8245LE-01


Product Description

With its particularly long eye relief of 15.9mm, the 4.5mm LER ocular from Explore Scientific’s 82° Series of Argon-Purged Waterproof Eyepieces puts the focus on a comfortable viewing experience for all observers. A long eye relief is especially important for eyeglass wearers because it allows them to enjoy the full field of view.


The 4.5mm focal length is perfect for observing objects that would benefit from high magnifications such as the Moon, the planets and binary stars. When atmospheric conditions are almost perfect, this eyepiece can reveal planetary details that will are truly stunning. The 4.5mm size is also great for detailed examinations of the structures within deep sky objects like nebulae.


This multi-element eyepiece achieves superior light transmission with edge-blackened optics made of low-dispersion glass with a high refractive index. Each lens also is fully multi-coated with durable enhanced multi-layer deposition (EMD) coatings. The combination of these factors maximizes the potential of your telescope to capture the celestial wonders you seek with sharp contrast, high resolution and crisp definition.


Like the others eyepieces in Explore Scientific 82° Series, this ocular has an ultra-wide 82° apparent field of view that immerses observers in the cosmos and naturally promotes relaxation at the eyepiece. When you relax your eyes and take in the scene presented before you, it is much easier to observe for longer periods of time, and details begin to materialize that were not revealed at first glance. The broad field of view promotes the use of averted vision, which involves looking slightly to the side of a target object rather than directly at it. This 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.


All Explore Scientific Waterproof Eyepieces are gas-purged and O-ring sealed to create a waterproof environment that is impervious to internal fogging and prevents contaminants like fungus and dust from entering the ocular housing. This design makes cleaning the eyepiece a breeze.

6.5mm 82° Series LER Waterproof Eyepiece - EPWP8265LE-01

With its impressively long eye relief of 16.8mm, the 6.5mm LER ocular from Explore Scientific’s 82° Series of Argon-Purged Waterproof Eyepieces puts the focus on a comfortable viewing experience for all observers. For eyeglass wearers, a long relief is a must because it allows them to enjoy the full field of view.


Although it is not the shortest focal length in the 82° Series, this eyepiece’s 6.5mm focal length will produce high magnifications that are great for observing objects like the Moon, the planets and binary stars. When atmospheric conditions are almost perfect, this eyepiece can reveal amazing planetary details and allow for thorough explorations of the structures within deep sky objects like nebulae.

82° 18mm Waterproof Eyepiece - EPWP8218-01

The 18mm 82° Series Waterproof Argon-Purged Eyepiece is a popular focal length in the upper-medium power magnification class providing both super-wide apparent field and generous eye relief. It is perfect for any application where more power is desired including observing globular star clusters, planetary nebulae, the bright cloud structure near the nucleus of comets, initial observations of planets, and (with the proper safe filtration on your telescope), observations of active regions of the sun. Use with Explore Scientific Focal Extenders for 2X, 3X, or 5X magnification increases while maintaining the eyepiece native apparent field and eye relief.

Using advanced computer design, combinations of low dispersion and high refractive index optical glasses, and durable enhanced multilayer deposition (EMD) coatings, Explore Scientific 82° Series super wide field eyepieces are optimized to produce high contrast, high resolution, and superior flat field characteristics. The visual effect of these eyepieces with their long eye-relief and their 82° apparent field is truly a full-immersion experience. Your eye is relaxed, allowing you to easily use the “averted vision” technique to study faint details across a huge field-of-view.

Each eyepiece is meticulously assembled into precision machined metal lens barrels that maintain the perfect alignment of the optical train for years of rugged use in the field. To keep internal reflections to a minimum, all internal surfaces of the eyepiece barrel are flat black, as well as the edges of the lenses themselves to minimize the scattering of light within the lenses themselves.

Explore Ultra-Wide Eyepieces - Comfort, Quality, Value. Explore Scientific 82° Series eyepieces, with their 82° apparent field of view, immerses you in a very comfortable ultra-wide field that naturally promotes relaxation at the eyepiece. When you relax your eyes and take in the scene presented before you, it is much easier to observe for longer periods of time, and details begin to materialize that may not have become apparent to you at first glance. Another great benefit of ultra-wide eyepieces is the 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.

82° 24mm Waterproof Eyepiece - EPWP8224-01
