The Opticstar XL Ultra Wide Angle eyepieces have an 82° apparent field of view and provide the highest optical quality and usability. These eyepieces are optimized to produce high contrast, high resolution and superior flat field all the way to the edge of the field of view. They are fully multi-coated with enhanced optical coatings and edge-blackened to produce maximum contrast. Internal reflections are kept to a minimum because all internal surfaces of the eyepiece barrel are flat black, as well as the edges of the lenses themselves to minimize the scattering of light within the lenses themselves.

Opticstar XL Ultra Wide Angle Eyepieces

These eyepieces are waterproof and purged with argon, a non-reactive gas that ptotects the optical elements from fogging up. Furthermore, these eyepieces are parfocal.

Better Manufacturing Standards
The Opticstar XL UWA eyepieces are optimized through each design, fabrication, and testing process. The superior quality large optical elements produce high contrast and high resolution images.

Optical Coatings
Fully multi-coated with EMD enhanced optical coatings result in durable coatings, bright and sharp images. All optical elements have blackened edges to reduce internal reflections and increase contrast.

Premium Quality
The Opticstar XL UWA deliver high quality images backed by a solid design, careful fabrication, multiple tests, and continued diligence to deliver a cutting edge, quality product.
