It's no surprise that the eyepieces in our Sirius Plossl line are our best-selling telescope eyepieces. Quality this good usually costs a lot more.
Offering a wide 52° apparent field of view, these 10mm, 17mm, and 25mm Orion Sirius Plossl Telescope Eyepieces provide extremely sharp images of impressively high contrast. They are ideal for all types of telescopes: reflector, refractor, and catadioptric. The Plossl 4-element design is renowned for its outstanding performance, and has become the standard by which all other telescope eyepieces are judged.
The Sirius Plossl optical system ismulti-coated for excellent light transmission. Lens edges are blackened to reduce scattering of stray light and maximize contrast.
The lenses are mounted in black-anodized aluminum housings with a 1.25"-diameter chrome-plated brass barrel for durability and precision fit. The barrel is internally threaded to accept standard telescope filters. The built-in rubber eyeguard enhances viewing by helping to block out ambient light and position the eye.
This Sirius Plossl Starter Set includes three eyepieces: our 10mm, 17mm, and 25mm models.
The 10mm is a great, moderately high power ocular for observing small planetary nebulas and globular star clusters, as well as for planetary probing when seeing conditions don't permit higher magnifications.
A medium-power eyepiece, the 17mm is perfect for broad-field lunar observations, medium-sized star clusters, and a wide range of nebular objects.
For moderately low power scanning of open star clusters, and viewing of extended nebulas and larger galaxies, the 25mm model excels.
