Masuyama eyepiece review

Recommended Posts

Doc

The originals in the early eighties were the ones everyone thought were brilliant, these are the new ones, I doubt if they are made by the same company. The originals are very expensive and highly sort after. If you read the report they don't get a great report, in a few places Bill says the ES68° are better.

Yes, it goes to show what a good eyepiece the ES 24/68 is.

And at a little over £120 you can't really go wrong.

I think the Masuyama eps look quite nice and are a bit different from the outside, but they don't seem to be a popular one in the UK.

 

They do quite a range of focal lengths right up to this heavyweight. 

 

Anyone with a long slow refractor might like these 3" 80mm Masuyama's, especially now they have been reduced from $2199.00 to just $1799.00 in Agena Astro's thanksgiving sale. What a bargain!!!! :lol:

 

They are a massive 213mm tall and 110mm wide! Don't think they'd work in the binoviewer Rob. :D

The era of the £1000+ eyepiece looks to be upon on. :blink:

 

 

Yup you could get a half decent camera for that :P

If one uses a 9m focal length Rumak Maksutov, there aren’t many options for long focal length eyepieces and low magnifications!

9 metres......?????  😲

 

And there was me thinking 2.7m (SW 180 F15 etc) or 4.0m (OO  OMC200) was long....
