The Vixen HR 1.25” eyepiece range is specifically designed for the observation of fine details on the surface of the planets and the moon. These 100% made in Japan eyepieces deliver high resolution, breathtaking images with extremely high levels of definition and contrast.
Eyepieces are generally constructed from 7 or 8 lens elements. The Vixen HR series is constructed with a 5 element, 3 group design to achieve the best possible light transmission. All HR eyepieces have baffle rings in the barrel to eliminate stray light.
They are suitable for Newtonian telescopes with fast primary mirrors such as the Vixen R200SS. The top of the range quad element AX103S ED refractor is another great partner for these specialist eyepieces.

No hesitation giving this 5 stars. Lightweight but powerful. A no nonsense eyepiece.
Stunning views of the lunar surface. I only tried this with a light grab and go mount but imagine the results will be even more impressive once I get out with a sturdy set up. Very easy to view from with no awkward eye relief problems.

I bought this eyepiece when it came out. Initially, it was used for my TV-60 at 150x, but now it is also used with my Tak FC100.
It's a great little eyepiece. The construction quality is really high. Optically, it has an exceptional light scatter control, light transmission, and shows a great contrast.

Having spent several observing sessions with the eyepiece I am truly amazed at the detail this eyepiece extracts. The performance on Lunar and planetary is nothing short of breathtaking across the whole FOV. With no discernible light scatter or coma splitting tight doubles such as 57 Cancri is a joy. The eyepiece is has a lovely feel to it and the build quality matches the performance. The eyepiece also comes with a bolt case to enable safe storage.
