TS-Optics Super Plössl with 20 mm focal length
With a slightly higher magnification than the standard 25 mm eyepiece
supplied with many telescopes, the Super Plössl 20 mm is a nice
compromise for viewing extended objects, but in more detail than with
the lower magnification eyepiece. Due to its excellent transmission the
TS Super Plössl will offer a similar image brightness compared with many
simple 25 mm eyepieces, despite the higher magnification.
the field stop has no higher diameter as the illuminated area of almost
any binoviewers, so there is no vignetting. In fact, all currently
available astronomical binoviewers show no
vignetting.The advantages at a glance
Significantly better workmanship than standard eyepieces which often have only 2-3 elements.
No "tunnel vision" through 52° apparent field of view.
Multi-coated on all air-to-glass surfaces for maximum contrast and a bright image
Blackened lens edges to prevent reflexes
1.25" barrel with thread for 1.25" filters
Foldable rubber eyecups - ideal against stray light and as a safe rest for your eyeglasses (no scratches)
- Rubber armour for a safe grip (from 20 mm focal length upwards)
High contrast and fine internal blackening make the TS Super Plössl eyepieces suitable also for astrophotography. Focal lengths up to 20 mm can be used very well in eyepiece projection adapters.
You can remove the rubber eyeguard and directly attach the optional
TSO-FotoringT2. Thus you make an effective projection eyepiece
with T2 connector out of every TS Super Plössl eyepiece.
By suitable adapters, you can now connect your DSLR or compact digital camera.
digital cameras with permanently attached lens we recommend especially
the focal lengths between 25 mm und 40 mm. For classic eyepiece
projection, the focal lengths between 9 mm and 20 mm are more
Particularly bright image
For successful observations, it is often essential how much light reaches the observer. Especially when watching weak nebulae and galaxies, the light transmission often makes the difference between visible and not visible.
The eyepieces offer a very well balanced transmission. They have no colour cast. Especially in the range where the human eye is very sensitive, the eyepieces also provide maximum brightness. This guarantees maximal successful observations.
