StellaLyra 18mm 1.25" KITAKARU RPL Eyepiece

Premium eyepieces manufactured in Taiwan to a Japanese design. 

KITAKARU designed the RPL (Really Perfect Lens) series to improve upon traditional orthoscopic eyepieces. The RPL design increases apparent field of view to 62º (65º in the 40mm) and suppresses distortion for a flat, clear, sharp view across the field with negligible chromatic aberration. 

Long Perng in Taiwan manufacture the RPL series to a very high standard. The result is a range of truly premium quality eyepieces with a beautiful fit and finish and optical clarity to match. 

Available in a range of focal lengths with 1.25" or 2" nosepiece. 

Includes two end caps for storage.
