Saxon ED 6.5mm 1.25" Low Dispersion Telescope Eyepiece
The Saxon Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) Eyepieces are 6-elements, Fully Multi-Coated for maximum brightness, with blackened lens edges to improve contrast across their 60 degree field of view, finished in high-gloss Anodized Aluminium with rubber grips and twist up rubber eyecups for longer Eye Relief
These Saxon ED Eyepieces able to provide high resolution and excellent sharpness while minimizing the chromatic aberration.
Why Choose Saxon ED Eyepieces?
ED Eyepieces are using two separate ED glass elements which able to provide better refractive properties if compared to standard optical glass, results in better colour correction. Visible colour differences between stars and planetary surface will give you more details while during observation.
ED Glass is often used in high-end Camera Lenses, Spotting Scopes and Refractor telescopes.
Hi Im a bit new to this stuff but i would like to know if this would support my Saxon Dobsonian 8" and whats the zoom capabilities compared to a 10mm eyepiece?
This eyepiece is certainly compatible with your telescope :)
The magnification you would get from this eyepiece would be around 315x. A 10mm eyepiece would give you a magnification of 120x. This eyepiece has no zooming feature as it has a fixed length.
I bought (from ozscopes) a celestron 4 se + a saxson eds 5.2mm) about a year ago. The 25mm eyepiece that came with the 4se is great but the 5.2mm is very poor. Is it possible the eds 5.2mm was damaged in transit or are they usually crappy like this? I like the 4se and am enjoying some great viewing of jupiter currently too.
With a 6mm eyepiece you should definitely be able to focus on an image with your telescope, compared to the 5.2mm. The problem with using an eyepiece that gives you a magnification over the telescope's highest useful magnification is that the image will just become dark and blurry, which is why you couldn't focus with the 5.2mm. A 6mm eyepiece will give you a magnification of 220x that falls just below your telescope's highest useful magnification, so you will be able to focus on an image with it. As long as you get an eyepiece that gives you a magnification of 241x and under, you'll be able to focus with your telescope.
