Description

Explore Scientific 120° Series 9mm Waterproof Eyepiece EPWP12009-01

The Explore Scientific 120° Series 9mm Waterproof Eyepiece EPWP12009-01 really is in a class by itself. The 120° apparent field of view is unlike anything you have experienced before. Normally, when we look through hyper wide field eyepieces, we see a huge swath of the night sky at low magnification. With the 9mm 120°, however, you see even more universal real estate, but you also see the main attraction, whether it is a nebulae, a galaxy, or a star cluster, close up and personal. In our opinion, it is the best of both worlds.

With such a wide field, you will also notice that objects stay in the field of view for a long time. This is especially noticeable when your telescope does not have a drive, like a Dobsonian or a refractor on a grab and go mount like the Explore Scientific Twilight I. Another great benefit of hyper-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..

Top Notch, Well Done!

It's absolutely phenomenal. Three nights ago we had sub-arcsecond seeing on Saturn at the Observatory Bed and Breakfast here in Osoyoos with my 16-inch Meade LX200 at over 450X with the Explore Scientific 9mm 120 Degree eyepiece. We could trace Cassini's Division right through the thin part of the ring and all the way around. The color was unbelievable, you could see the yellow tints and the bands on Saturn. The guests who viewed that night were absolutely blown away. What I really like about the eyepiece is it's 120 degree apparent field of view. Even though I am too old to see the entire field of view at one time, I can find objects that the telescopes slews to at high power that would not normally be in the field of view of an eyepiece with less apparent field by tipping my eye. With this telescope of over 4000mm of focal length I am getting over a quarter of a degree true field of view which is fantastic!

Whoa!

I have not had a chance to do meaningful planetary viewing since I got this eyepiece, but I am already impressed with its performance. My setup is a Celestron 9.25" Evolution SCT and a TeleVue 2" Everbright diagonal. I started out just doing land-based observation to calibrate the finder scope. I spot the top of a pine that's about 3/4 of a mile away. It was pretty windy so the pine kept swaying, and I couldn't calibrate the scope to the finder as I wanted, but the field of view of the eyepiece was so large that the top of the tree stayed in view as the tree swayed! Later I got the finder calibrated and was able to view some objects, but conditions were far less than ideal for viewing. Not many planets visible during the night this time of year, except for Neptune and Uranus. I pointed the scope at the Orion Nebula, and even in light polluted skies with a moon two nights after full the nebula was visible. When viewing, I can see the entire 120 degree field of view, but it is difficult to maintain it for more than a couple of seconds. It is much easier to back off a bit from the eyepiece, and just tilt my eye in different directions. This makes it easy to find objects that are off center, because you don't have to move the telescope, you just have to move your eye. Color preservation and light transmission are both excellent.
