The Altair Lightwave TM 9mm Planetary Long Eye Relief Eyepiece delivers high power with a short focal length telescope, such as a small refractor, so it's ideal for high power planetary or lunar observing.
The 7-element, 4 group computer optimized design, a very smooth polish, and fully multi-coated optics deliver exceptional contrast and clarity. The 55° apparent field of view is flat, and well corrected.
20mm of Long Eye Relief means you can position your eye 20mm from the eyepiece rear lens, making this is a very comfortable eyepiece for beginners and experienced observers alike, whether or not you're wearing glasses. This helps you spend more time observing fine details on the planets or moon without fatigue.
