1994 Nikon ED78+Fieldscope Brochure Tidbits (1 Viewer)

thanks for sharing this - interesting how many not so wide fixed EPs there were back then... and only one wide angle...
Remember that was way back, long before WA eyepieces became widely available all over the place.

I know four of the eyepieces shown: 20/25x (that's actually reasonably wide with an AFOV of 60 degrees, works well for many eyeglass wearers), 40/50x (an orthoscopic eyepiece, very short eyerelief, narrow, but excellent optical quality), 30/38x WA (an excellent eyepiece, the eyepiece shown is the first version of this eyepiece, my mother has been using it on her EDII for many, many years now) and of course the zoom (fairly narrow field of view, optically still a nice eyepiece, small and light, I use one on the ED50 quite a lot).

Nice posting. I unfortunately lost some of my old catalogues when I moved the last time.
