SWAN 15mm (1.25 inch) Eyepiece (discontinued)
SWAN: how many comparable EPs are there at this price?
The Swan eyepieces are super wide angle designs with 72° apparent field of view. They use simple but sophisticated five-lens optical systems for generally higher contrast than the more complicated optical designs used in some other super wide angle eyepieces that use up to eight lenses. All lenses are fully multicoated for high light transmission. Lens edges and internal field stops are blackened to reduce internal reflections and improve contrast. The rubber grip ring is useful for safer handling of the heavier 2” eyepieces when wearing gloves in cold weather. The eyepieces have soft roll down rubber eyecups for eyeglass use. They can be used for all types of observing, with all telescope types, but they are recommended for use with focal ratios up to f/6 and above. Dust caps are provided for both ends of each eyepiece. A soft protective drawstring-equipped velvet storage bag is standard equipment with each.
This 5-element super-wide angle 15mm SWAN EP’s panoramic views at 72 deg. F.O.V. will leave you speechless!
For day and night! A very useful focal length which every user should have.
