Five 1.25" Sirius Plossl Telescope Eyepieces
Using different eyepieces enables you to "zoom in" on details with
low focal-length high-magnification eyepieces to view, for example, a specific
cratered region of the Moon. Conversely, using moderate to long focal length
eyepieces provide a wider field of view to take in larger swaths of the night
sky to view, for example, the entire disk of the full Moon, or a wide-field
open star cluster or gaseous nebula. Five Sirius Plossl eyepieces are included
to provide a comprehensive variety of viewing magnifications. Plossl eyepieces
feature four-element optics that are multi-coated and a pleasantly wide 52°
apparent field of view (43° for the 40mm eyepiece).
The 40mm focal length eyepiece will show a very wide area of sky in most telescopes.
The 17 and 10mm eyepieces provide a moderate viewing power for taking in more
detail on target objects. The high magnification 7.5mm and 6.3mm Plossl eyepieces
yield very high viewing powers.
1.25" 2x Shorty Barlow
The included Shorty 2x Barlow doubles the magnifying power of any 1.25"
eyepiece used with it, providing an easy way to effectively double the number
of magnification options at your disposal. The Shortys 2x amplifier lens
is an achromatic glass doublet that is multi-coated with anti-reflection coatings
to ensure excellent light transmission. The machined and anodized aluminum housing
is internally baffled to eliminate unwanted reflections and increase contrast,
and features filter threads to accept any 1.25" Orion eyepiece filter.
1.25" 13% Transmission Moon Filter
A neutral density Moon filter reduces distracting glare during brighter phases
and optimize contrast of lunar landscape features. Not only will you see more
surface features, but you can study them in greater comfort. This telescope
filter reduces irradiation, which is the distortion at the boundary between
light and dark areas, such as along the lunar terminator.

and details as indicated below:
