Vixen's new HR line fills a previously unserved niche in the market for ultra-high magnification eyepieces.
These eyepieces are the perfect accessory to hunters of tight double stars. They are also a useful tool for planetary observers looking to push their telescopes to the limit of what the seeing allows or to those looking to tweak out that extra bit of detail from a small planetary nebula or a faint galaxy or globular cluster.
These are high quality eyepieces whose performance has been compared to that of now legendary and difficult to attain eyepieces like the Pentax XO series.
The optics is of a 5 elements in 3 groups design. Each eyepiece is equipped with baffle rings in the barrel in order to eliminate stray light.
Focal length: 1.6mm
Apparent field of view: 42°
Eye Relief: 10mm
