The advantages in a nutshell
orthoscopic eyepieces have very high field sharpness
perfect for planets and double stars
only 4 lens elements - for bright, high-contrast images
soft rubber eyecups for comfortable viewing
Pin-sharp both in the centre and at the edge
Omegon ortho eyepieces provide extremely high field sharpness, so planets can show you all their details. Not only that, but this superior sharpness is maintained right out to the edge of the field of view. You also enjoy an aberration-free image in these eyepieces - you see astronomical objects as they really are.
Excellent contrast and high light transmission
Less is often more. This is of particular importance to these eyepieces - their use of only 4 lens elements means that Omegon ortho eyepieces have very high light transmission. That is something that is high on the wish list for planetary and double star observing. So don't be surprised if you can split close binary stars which had always given you trouble in the past using these eyepieces.
Multi-coating to supress reflections
The lens elements in these Omegon ortho eyepieces have been fully multi-coated. Reflections are hence suppressed, giving higher contrast and increasing your observing pleasure.
Rubber eyecups to block stray light and increase observing comfort
Omegon ortho eyepieces come equipped with a soft rubber eyecup. They let you observe in comfort and block lateral light which could otherwise lead to unwanted reflections.
Available in 3 versions
