These are Super-Plossl eyepieces from GSO with possibly the best contrast in the middle-price range. The accurately polarised surfaces and the renewed anti-reflexion coating make their contrast even better.
These eyepieces, that otherwise come with an average transmission value of 96.4%, have a maximum transmittance above 98% in the range of orange light!

Specification:
Focal lenght:                      40 mm
Apparent Field of View:    43 deg
Clear Aperture:                 25 mm
Eye Relief:                        19 mm
Barrel Size:                       1.25 inch
Real Field of View:           103' (in the case of a telescope with 1000mm focal length)
Magnification:                   25x (in the case of a telescope with 1000mm focal length)


Just for clarification: these are sometimes being called "Plossl", sometimes "Super Plossl" eyepieces. Never-the-less these are the same...

Mr. Stephen Bassett

I was curious as to why the 40mm had been reduced in price and is now cheaper than the 32mm but decided to give it a go. I was not dissapointed. This Plossl is great value for money. Using my telescope this eye piece gives me 18x magnification which is a nice step up from my 9x finder scope. I managed some fantastic views of some of the larger deep sky objects and was actually quite taken back by the detail I could make out on the moon. a great budget eyepiece and I will be considering some of the other Plossl's in GSO's range
(The discounted price was only a way of reducing large stock that we had of the 40mm Plossl at the time of your purchase. Thanks for your purchase, Zoltan, the Shop Owner)
