The advantages in a nutshell
- resistant – waterproof and nitrogen-filled to repel moisture and for a long life
- huge 82° field of view with almost no limits
- firm grip – ribbed rubber armouring
- elegant design – anodized aluminium housing
Almost unlimited 82° field of view
Look for an object or take a close look at an extended emission nebula – a wide field of view is tailor-made for this. When looking through an 82° Oberon eyepiece, you get the impression of being immersed in space – also known as the ‘space-walk’ effect. You seem to be able to meander through the universe with your eye alone, and without seeing the edge of the field of view of the eyepiece.
Planetary and deep space eyepiece
High light transmission, clever optical design and baffles mean this eyepiece has ‘professional level’ contrast. The eyepiece is hence an excellent choice for both planetary and DSO observing. Save yourself having to constantly change eyepieces and spend more time observing the object.
Lasting quality – waterproof and nitrogen-filled
Oberon eyepieces are extremely elegant – they are anodized and look good in any telescope. But the best thing is that they are also water-proof and nitrogen-filled. This provides an enormous advantage when looking after them – you can clean the housing and the lenses with water and hence free the optical elements of grease and dirt.
This is easy with the Oberon eyepieces as no moisture can get into them.
The Oberon series
The Oberon eyepiece series consists of 6 eyepieces with focal lengths between 32mm and 7mm. The spacing of the focal lengths results in sensible magnifications with most telescopes – from an general overview eyepiece to observing planets at high magnifications.
