Brandon eyepiece 16 mm with eyeguard
eyepieces are noted for their exceptional contrast and extremely dark
background, two reasons why Questar Corp. has been using them since
1971. In a test of many eyepieces, noted deep - sky observer Ron Morales
rated Brandon #1 for contrast, which is the single most important
function of any eyepiece.
So, whether you´re looking for the faint arms of a spiral galaxy or a minor division in Saturn´s rings - Brandons perform best.
Some may question why we haven´t multicoated our Brandons. The
truth is we made several sets using 7-layer multicoatings and found no
improvement whatsoever. One reason not to multicoat is to eliminate or
greatly reduce a phenomenon known as "narrow angle light scatter".
Multicoatings have more narrow angle scatter than standard eyepiece
coatings. You can see this effect on bright objects like Venus, Mars or
Jupiter, which greatly interfere with low contrast detail.
Brandon eyepieces, you will also notice a significant difference in the
background darkness immediately surrounding a bright object, especially
important for planetary or double-star observing. In addition, lunar
detail such as the bands of Aristarchus are much better defined.
1991, our Brandon lenses have been made on the latest optical
generating equipment and highly polished to avoid cosmetic defects. All
Brandon eyepieces are assembled at our Candor, NY facility where they
must pass several optical testing procedures, thus assuring that you
will receive consistent high quality.
The famous BRANDON oculars
has been conceptional developed from Carl Zeiss. 1949 Chester Brandon
refined the optical designs.Leading astronomers acclaimed this eyepieces
as unquestionably the finest ocular set in the world. They will totally
