This eyepiece offers an apparent wide field of 68 °, high level optical quality, surprising light transmission and correctly corrected field planarity ...
The Explore Scientific 68 ° eyepiece range is well suited for the amateur astronomer looking for optical quality while remaining within a moderate budget. It is an excellent compromise for owners of telescopes with diameters between 150 mm and 300 mm. Observing the Orion nebula in these eyepieces through a Dobson telescope of 200 mm reserves very pleasant surprises.
Each eyepiece of the series 68 ° is sealed and filled with an inert gas, argon. This process prevents the formation of condensation inside the eyepiece and prevents the entry of dust to maximize the lifetime of the internal coatings.

The focal length of the Explore Scientific 68 ° eyepiece of 20 mm predestines it at fairly low to medium magnifications (50x on an optical tube of 1 meter of focal length), making it very versatile for planetary observations (Moon, planets, Sun) , As well as looking for details in nebulae and galaxies, while keeping a large field of view.
The eye relief of 20 mm is 15.3 mm: this means that the image remains comfortable up to 15.3 mm above the lens, to fully enjoy the field offered by the lens, ocular. This is an important detail for the viewer wearing eyeglasses, which will keep them on the nose.
Finally, it fits into the 1.25 "(31.75 mm) eyepiece holders. The inside of the sink is threaded in M28.5 x 0.6 mm to accommodate filters with 31.75 mm (1.25" ), Such as interference filters of type OIII, UHC, H-Beta, etc., which serve to enhance the contrast on many nebulae.
