Model: vixen_slv_2.5Part Number: 77202Brand: Vixen
The Vixen SLV series are premium eyepieces with high-grade fully multi-coated Lanthanum glass for bright, high contrast views.
Seven elements in four groups.
Comfortable 20mm eye-relief and convenient twist-up eyecups make them suitable for use with spectacles.
All the eyepieces are parfocal so little, if any, refocusing is required when changing from one focal length to another.
New polygonal rubber grip - comfortable to hold and prevents the eyepiece rolling away.
This eyepiece feels well-made, solidly constructed, and comfortable to use with generous eye relief, however I feel that it is let down by being quite bulky and heavy for such a small FOV. In fact the apparent field of view appears somewhat smaller than the stated 50 degrees, probably nearer to 45 degrees, and significantly smaller than that of traditional 50 degree Plossls.
A great looking eyepiece with 20mm eye relief, a twist up eyecup and Ortho performance what more could one ask for ??The contrast and clarity are superb, I could detect no light scatter or distortion right across the FOV.In addition to razor sharp views the eyepieces are very well put together and feel great in the hand.As an indication of just how good the SLV range are I have replaced my very expensive set of eyepieces and have experienced no regrets whatsoever.
