SLV series 5mm lanthanum eyepiece 50 deg FOV with solid anti-roll body for general close up viewing
The Vixen SLV eyepieces feature long 20mm eye relief and extremely high-grade lanthanum (rare-earth-element) glasses to minimise aberrations (spurious colours). Lenses are fully multicoated to reduce reflections and improve light transmission for high contrast views and elimination of ghost images. With twist-up click-stop eyecups they are perfect for those who wear eye eyeglasses and help shield unwanted and distracting external light sources.
