Model: bcortho-6-2954106Part Number: 2954106Brand: Baader
These new premium quality orthoscopic eyepieces from Baader are a worthy replacement for their earlier Baader Genuine Orthoscopic.
Baader also offers a Classic 32mm Plossl which when used with the three orthos produces a variety of useful and complimentary magnifications.
The 6mm and 10mm Classic Orthoscopics incorporate an inset volcano-top shape that provides eyelash clearance and comfortable folding rubber eyeshields. The 18mm Classic Orthoscopic and 32mm Classic Plossl also incorporate winged rubber eyeshields.
Baader Classic Ortho and Plossl Review by John Huntley
If your scope came with the standard 'super' 10mm and 25mm then you will probably heard plenty of advice telling you to consider replacing the 10mm eyepiece. In my previous scope I did this with a plossl and having recently bought a 10" f/4.7 I decided to give the Baader Classic Ortho 10mm a try. I have not been disappointed. If eye relief and a relatively narrow (compared to some eyepieces costing 4 times as much) filed of view aren't much of a problem I can wholeheartedly recommend one of these. They represent a big step up in sharpness and contrast over a plossl and a massive jump compared to the stock 10mm supplied with some scopes. You really cannot go wrong with one of these unless you struggle with slightly tight eye relief. Well worth the money even just for the planetary views I have had so far. Jupiter and Saturn are fantastic in this little eyepiece. Get yourself one for planetary observations right now.
