Even before the disappearance of the famed Baader Genuine Orthoscopics, Baader Planetarium sought to develop a true Planetary eyepiece set that was accessible for any amateur - without breaking their bank. Introducing the new Baader Planetarium Classic Eyepieces and Q-Turret Eyepiece sets.

Foregoing fancy (and costly) cosmetics, the new Classic Eyepieces deliver where it counts - performance. Their sharpness and contrast rival other 'planetary' eyepieces costing much more. To achieve this performance and value, Baader drew upon their extensive in-house knowledge and experience, combined with optical designs and processes leveraged from Zeiss.

Features of the new Classic Eyepieces:

 

  • Optical design and manufacturing specs based on the highly regarded Zeiss Jena .965 orthoscopics (not any Japanese or Chinese makes).

  • Fully Multi-Coated: All air-to-glass surfaces coated with Baader's HT MultiCoatings, specifically matched to each substrate.

  • Excellent Ergonomics: The innovative recessed volcano top provides clearance for eyelashes and enables a comfortably located eyepoint without the stray light problems of a full volcano top.

  • Integrated winged folding rubber eyecup: Eliminates distracting stray side-light, enabling full concentration on the object, as well as providing a thermally insulating and soft non-scratching top surface (ie, for eyeglass wearers). Also outstanding for BinoViewing. May be folded down or removed, if needed .

  • 50degree apparent field (6/10/18mm Ortho): Makes finding and centering objects at high powers easier than typical 40-45deg eyepieces.

  • Threaded for 1.25" Astro Filters.

 

NOTE: The 32mm Classic Plossl also includes a slip-on eyeguard extension tube to permit positioning the eyeguard farther back, for use with the barlow lens, or if the user prefers a shorter eye relief.
