Well, with my ES 82 eyepieces, I can see the field stops, even with the ones with short eye relief. I don’t wear glasses, btw. But for pure viewing comfort I prefer my Pentax XW’s a lot better with their large eye lens and eye relief.
You picked up a good eyepiece. Nice to see it’s working well with your scope with good AFOV.
Celestron also has their Luminos line of eyepieces with wide, 82* AFOV but don’t seem to be very popular amongst the CN crowd.
I have a few Explore Scientific 68* & 82* eyepieces which I use on my...
I like the interchangeability of eyepieces on my Pentax scope. I bought the scope without the zoom eyepiece. And as mentioned above the scope accepts most any other astronomical eyepieces. I have about a dozen other eyepieces for my telescopes and they are all compatible with the two...
I have UV filters on my spotting scopes and the lens shades extend well beyond the filters.
But with nothing to shade the filters on your bins, that may possibly create some sort of glare or reflection problems?
No, I have not them for seawatching.
I’ve had the EP’s for my telescopes, primarily.
For my 65mm Pentax I like the 14XW. Also, the Explore Scientific 11 & 14mm. I sometimes favor the ES eyepieces over the XW’s for their compact size, especially when hiking.
I have the 20, 14, 10, & 7mm XW eyepieces and they all perform extremely well on both my Pentax 65 & 80mm scopes. I don’t own the zoom EP so I don’t have the basis for comparison.
i also have a few 82 degree Explore Scientific EP’s which also perform well, but with noticeably shorter ER.
