Mid-range high power eyepieces like the 6.5mm are instrumental when transitioning through magnifications to observe an object until it is best seen. There are several aspects that have to come together when observing at high powers: good-to-perfect atmospheric seeing conditions; telescope optics that are collimated; a telescope that is acclimated to the ambient temperature; brightness and size of the object being observed are just a few aspects to consider. The observing challenges are high, but the rewards of observing at high power with razor sharp views are unforgettable.

Explore Scientific Waterproof Eyepieces - Comfort, Quality, Value. The Explore Scientific 52° Series eyepieces are excellent flat-field multi-element oculars that can transform your visual astronomy experience. With an apparent field of view of 52 degrees, these eyepieces offer incredible value in a very nice eyepiece. Expect exceptional quality and value versus a comparably priced Plossol.

Another great benefit of these eyepieces is the excellent contrast and 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.
