18mm - BST Explorer Starguider ED Eyepiece
BST Explorer - Starguider Super Planetary ED Eyepiece
Two elements out of the 6 optical elements are made of ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements to provide excellent sharpness edge-to-edge, low level of chromatic aberration and very well managed astigmatism, making this eyepiece a real competitor to much more expensive eyepieces.
These extremely sharp 60 ° eyepieces have a 16-20 mm eye relief. The contrast is enormous; one can compare them with other planetary eyepieces such as orthos. At the same time these give us larger field of view and more relaxed look for money than a conventional Ortho.
This is the Rolls-Royce version of our range of eyepieces sold under "the Planetary"
