About the High Point 1.25" Eyepiece Kit
Five 1.25" Plossl Eyepieces: Representing a wide range of magnifications for your telescope, you will receive a 4 mm, 6 mm, 9 mm, 15 mm, and 32 mm focal length Plossl eyepiece. Our Plossl eyepieces have four optical elements and are fully multi-coated for good contrast views. Each of the lens elements has blackened edges to keep internal reflections to a minimum. A rubber eyecup tops each eyepiece to make viewing more comfortable, block out stray light, and keep your eye from touching the cold metal during observations. Plossl eyepieces have a field of view of around 50º and work best for observations without eyeglasses. The 1.25" chrome barrel is threaded to accepts 1.25" filters and fit easily into the included High Point 2X Barlow to double their magnification. This means you can get 10 different magnifications out of 5 eyepieces when you add the Barlow to the mix!
High Point 2X Barlow Lens The 1.25" 2x Barlow in the High Point Ultimate Plossl Eyepiece Kit works in conjunction with any 1.25" eyepiece (including the five Plossls included in this set) to double their magnification. Just slide the barrel of any 1.25" eyepiece into the opening of the Barlow, and enjoy twice the power of the eyepiece alone. High-grade glass optics with fully multicoated lenses are used so there is no degradation of the image.
Five High Point 1.25" Colored Filters: Enhance your enjoyment of our Solar System with a #12 yellow, #56 yellow/green, #21 orange, #25 red, #80A medium blue, or #58a dark green planetary filter. These 1.25" filters thread onto the bottom of most any 1.25" eyepiece barrel. Depending on the color of the filter and the planet being observed, you can bring out details that are not as easily seen without a filter. Observe the ice caps or maria on Mars, the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, and more by adding a filter.
