NEW StellaLyra Eyepieces


Recommended Posts

We have some new StellaLyra LER eyepieces that provide bright high contrast views with very little false colour. 

A well established design (7 element / 4 group) manufactured by Long Perng in Taiwan. 

An excellent choice for high magnification lunar and planetary observation. 

Generous 20mm eye-relief so can be used use with eye glasses.

From the photo it looks as though the top of the eyepiece is threaded, so presumably the eye guard comes off.

Please would you confirm this and state what the diameter of the thread is?  If you haven't already guessed it's to see if a Dioptrx fits.

If so, would a Dioptrx rotate when the eyepiece is zoomed?

Many thanks.

A Dioptrx fits onto my Baader zoom that has a 43mm thread.  Apparently any  top between 41mm and 44mm should be suitable.

However, the eyecup has to be removed.  Is it possible to do so with this eyepiece? 

We have checked, it isn't suitable for use with a Tele Vue Dipotrx. Sorry.

We also now stock StellaLyra KITAKARU RPL eyepieces 😎

Designed by KITAKARU in Japan and manufactured by Long Perng in Taiwan. 

There is some debate around whether these are modified Orthoscopics or modified Plossls. Either way, they provide very well corrected views, negligible false colour and 62º FOV (65º in the 40mm). 

Their focal lengths make them an excellent choice for observing open star clusters with long focal ratio telescopes.
