These modern eyepieces with Super-Wide 68° Apparent Field Of View are an excellent choice for telescopes f5 or higher. 

Low dispersion glasses with high refractive index and anti-reflection multilayer coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces provide maximum light transmission and high contrast. Blackened lens edges and internal baffling also enhance contrast and minimise ghosting from internal reflections. 

Sealed waterproof construction and an Argon gas-purged interior protect the eyepiece from rain or dew and and eliminates internal condensation to ensure the optics remain pristine. 

Removable and foldable soft silicone-rubber eyecup for comfort and convenience and a tapered nosepiece provides peace of mind (the eyepiece is less likely to fall out of the focuser).
