The 12.5mm Orion Edge-On Planetary Eyepiece brings flat-field performance to solar system viewing. This eyepiece utilizes a chic 7-element lens design reminiscent of exotic, high-priced oculars to provide a sharp focus all the way to the edge of their wide 55-deg apparent field of view. Virtually gone are the field curvature aberrations and barrel distortion common in standard telescope eyepiece designs. Whether you're studying Jovian cloud belts or canvassing the lunar terminator, the Orion Edge-On Planetary eyepieces let you push the power.

The 7-element optics are fully multi-coated for high light transmission, and each eyepiece has 20mm eye relief for viewing comfort. Other nice touches include pop-down rubber eyeguards, blackened telescope lens edges, and barrels threaded for 1.25" filters. The barrel diameter is 1.25".
