Product information

D-grade Olivon S-HR 8-24mm ED eyepiece
Size 1.25"
Threaded for filters. Yes

In full working order and on testing gives stunning deep sky views

So why is this eyepiece at such a low price and classed as D-grade.
This eyepiece has a manufacturing defect. In the centre of view is a small circle that looks similar to a centre mark on a Newtonian telescope. Although this is visible on terrestrial objects and the Moon , it seems invisible when used on DSOs.

On testing with a 100mm refractor, I got some stunning views of the Orion nebula at all magnifications, even with light pollution and a scope not fully cooled down. Detail in the nebula was amazing + the trapezium within. The Castor double star showed a clear gap between the 2 stars with no false colour.

Twist eye cup and zoom move freely.
Note it says 20-60x , but this is the magnification when used with an Olivon 80mm spotting scope. But is still essentially an 8-24mm focal length ED glass zoom eyepiece.

If using for deep space views, you will not be disappointed.
