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!

      Now  looking for  either a 9mm or 11mm Televue Delite in good condition, boxed and with caps. I can tolerate fair wear such as marks on the barrel but nothing on the coatings or glass.
      Put the money towards a Delos? 😈

      Skywatcher illuminated reticule eyepiece. It has a red crosshair pattern. I think it’s 24mm rather than the newer 12.5mm models. Great condition. Looking for £35 including postage from France. Thanks.
