The 1.25" diameter barrel 82°-Series 8.8mm Eyepiece from Explore Scientific is a wide-field telescope eyepiece designed for planetary and deep-space observations. Its wide exit pupil and long eye relief makes this eyepiece ideal for comfortable viewing for extended periods. The contrast is enhanced by a fold-down rubber eyecup that prevents stray light from leaking into your eye.

Anti-reflective multicoated optics ensures bright, high-contrast images with true color transmission across the entire wide field of view. The eyepiece features a textured surface for a sure-grip when changing it out, and it is argon-filled for water and fogproof performance when used in extreme temperatures and climates.

Wide 82° apparent field of view displays a broad image with minimal optical distortion, ideal for detailed observation
Images have true color transmission across the entire field of view, even as the observed object approaches the field stop.
Wide exit pupil and long eye relief ensure comfortable long-duration observation through your telescope
Fold-down eyecup prevents peripheral light from leaking into your eye, causing blurring and dimming of the image

    82° Series 8.8mm Eyepiece (1.25") is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this eyepiece I bought this eyepiece with the 14 mm version. I also own the 11 mm from the 82 Series and the 20 mm from the 68 Series. I use them with my Celestron 8SE for deep sky and planetary viewing. I can't say enough about these excellent eyepieces from Explore Scientific. They offer excellent optical quality from edge to edge of the field. They have generous eye relief. The build quality is impressive. I will probably buy two or three more. I recommend them highly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ES 8.8 This is a very well constructed eyepiece the views I have through the 8.8 are on par with the other 28mm ES eyepiece that I have,which is fantastic.Nice and crisp images all the way across the lens,eye relief is a bit tight but still 5 stars because it performs beautifully!
    Date published: 2017-02-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great AFOV, but not optimal eye relief Great AFOV and great image quality, but slightly tight eye relief (15.6mm) leads to frequent kidney-beaning blackouts (even without glasses). This EP can't be used with glasses at all.
