Sometimes less is more.
With most telescopes you can often see some objects in the sky better with lower power and a wider field of view. You can increase the true field of view of your telescope and lower the power, which makes finding objects easier, with the Orion 2" Telescope Accessory Kit! This assortment of a carrying case with pluckable foam (so you can sort your accessories any way you desire), 3 DeepView eyepieces, an Orion 2" Barlow lens and a 2" Orion SkyGlow filter gives you a perfect introduction to the advantages of 2" eyepieces for deep-sky viewing.
The eyepieces in this kit include the Orion 42mm, 35mm, and 28mm focal length DeepView models which are optimized for bright, low power, wide fields of view. The included 2", 2x Barlow lens allows you to double the magnification of any of the three included eyepieces, allowing you to achieve a total of 6 possible magnification options (resulting magnification of each eyepiece and Barlow/eyepiece combination depends on the focal length of your telescope). The 2" Barlow is threaded for use with big 2" eyepiece filters. We've also included a 2" SkyGlow Broadband Filter which will help combat the ill effects of light pollution, and help optimize your wide-field observations.
Remember, while 2" eyepieces have definite advantages for deep sky observers, you must have a telescope focuser with a 2" holder that will accept 2" eyepieces - these usually come standard on an 8" or larger diameter telescopes.
The Orion 2" Telescope Accessory Kit includes:
- 42mm Orion 2" DeepView Telescope Eyepiece
- 35mm Orion 2" DeepView Telescope Eyepiece
- 28mm Orion 2" DeepView Telescope Eyepiece
- 2" Orion SkyGlow Broadband Eyepiece Filter
- 2" Orion 2x Barlow Lens
- Orion Pluck-Foam Accessory Case
The included carry case measures 17.5" x 13.5" x 6" and has a pluck-foam interior so you can choose exactly how you want to arrange your eyepieces and accessories inside. This 2" kit of accessories is a great introduction to the joys of using low-power and wide field of view eyepieces with your telescope that will take your observing sessions to a new dimension. It's a must-buy for anyone interested in exploring deep-sky objects!
