Ascension Super Abbe Orthoscopic Eyepiece 4.8mm short review


Recommended Posts

Afternoon all ,

Ebay asked my to write a review on the above lens ( they do that from time to time whatever you buy ) 

This is my first Orthoscopic lens , hence the short review . But I did try it very early this morning on Jupiter and compared it against my 5mm ED BST ( also a great little lens )

From my experience with the Super Abbes, I found they work better in longer focal length scopes, or when used with a Barlow lens. So if a Barlow is to be used, it would be worth acquiring some of the longer focal lengths. They are also good in binoviewers!
