The 8.8 mm focal length is perfect for observing objects that would benefit from higher magnifications, but that also require a bigger field of view. With our bigger refractor telescopes (127mm and 152mm) this is an incredible eyepiece to use on Globular Clusters like Messier 13 in Hercules. When using this eyepiece with our 102mm 714 focal length refractor the Eagle Nebula and other similar sized objects will fill your entire view and explode with details. On our smallest scope, the 80mm 480mm refractor telescope, this eyepiece will delight you with a full view of the Double Cluster in Perseus.

Explore Ultra-Wide Eyepieces - Comfort, Quality, Value. Explore Scientific 82° Series eyepieces, with their 82° apparent field of view, immerses you in a very comfortable ultra-wide field that naturally promotes relaxation at the eyepiece. When you relax your eyes and take in the scene presented before you, it is much easier to observe for longer periods of time, and details begin to materialize that may not have become apparent to you at first glance. Another great benefit of ultra-wide eyepieces is the ease with which you can gaze, not directly at an object, but slightly to either side. This skill, called using averted vision, is especially helpful when observing faint objects, because using averted vision puts the image on a part of your eye that is more sensitive to light, allowing you to see fainter images.
