About this product
Part Number: SP10852
Please note BST StarGuider ED eyepieces are occasionally branded 'Astro Essentials'.
Remarkably high performance-per-£!
Features include two ED glass elements and fully multicoated edge-blackened optics for excellent colour, enhanced contrast, high light transmission and minimal ghosting.
The six-element / four-group design minimises field curvature for a nice flat field, even when used with telescope f-ratios as low as f5.
Modern twist-up eyecups, 16mm eye relief and 21mm diameter eye-lens makes them comfortable to use, even when wearing eyeglasses.
The tactile rubber grip and milled indentations make them easy to handle in the dark and the 1.25“ nosepiece includes a safety undercut so the eyepiece is less likely to slip out of the focuser. The 1.25” nosepiece is also threaded to accept 1.25“ astronomy filters.

Thankfully the guys at flo recommended these e/ps over a dearer type that i was interested in, usually with shops its the other way round. Nice to deal with an honest business. The e/ps themselves are very good quality and very well priced, they also barlow well. So good good every way. Goods came well packed and very prompt delivery. i will be ordering more to add to the set. thank you flo.
The best value for such money

Pretty sure there's no better eyepiece for this price-range.
It's optical quality, FOV (field of view) and ER (eye relief) are unbeatable in this price-range!

I bought this to go with my new Sky-Watcher Skyliner 200P, as I didn't really like the supplied eyepieces. I was impressed with the quality and weight of the 8mm eyepiece, certainly not plasticky like the OEM ones. It gave some nice views of the phase of Venus, so a winner in my book. I will be buying more in this range!
Please fill in the form below to ask a question.
Q1. But aren't these the same as ........ ?
Probably... BST (BarSTa) Starguider ED eyepieces are available under a number of brands but we source them with their original factory name.
Q2. Are these noticably better than the 10 & 20mm eyepieces supplied with my telescope?
