A terrific eyepiece

By

from Burlingame, CA  -  Casual/ Recreational

Very useful for planets and deep sky objects. Extremely sharp images from edge to edge. Higher contrast than other similarly sharp eyepieces, which I especially like when viewing faint galaxies and nebulae. Very high contrast is what sold me on Pentax SMC-XW eyepieces. I also use the SMC-XW 20 mm eyepiece for the same purposes. Thank you Pentax!!

Premium Optics

By

from New Jersey  -  Casual/ Recreational

I am very happy with this purchase.The twist up eyeguard is a big improvement over the traditional rubber type.All six of the 1 1/4 eyepieces are parfocal(almost no refocusing).There is a generous 20mm of eye relief.The optics produce excellent views, even in a short focal length scope.

Questions about this item:

Gerry H  Does the Pentax XW eyepiece accept standard threaded 1 1/4" filters?
RANDALL P  Yes, and an outstanding ocular. This is one of the (if not the) best 10 mm oculars you can own. I hope this helps.
