    Default New explore Scientific 11mm 82 degree on the way



    Well decided to take the plunge and add at least one more new EP I ordered the 11mm for $99 to replace my 10mm to gain wider FOV. I hope this will improve the views on globulars, as I love my 30mm. Anyway I got a little excited and wanted to share, especially after a fairly decent night hunting Messieurs.

    Congrats, I really hope you enjoy it! I have been eying up the 14mm ES 82 degree EP myself... and it has been very difficult trying to resist the temptation to hit the buy button! A little more expensive over here by the sounds of it though... the 14mm is £165. I think it will be well worth the money though i'm going to break before too long! I have just bought a Baader Planetarium Hyperion 31mm EP to replace my 40mm Celestron EP that came with my scope (I was using it properly for the first time last Wednesday and decided that I really don't like it at all, it's a stock 40mm Celestron Plossl) so I am really looking forward to trying it out when it arrives in a few days. The ES EP will have to be the next on the list... and then there's the rest of the stuff on my list...

    Just be aware that the 14mm ES82 is considered the worst of the bunch. I have it myself. While I personally think it is a good eyepiece, the general opinion seems the be that it is not as good as the rest of the lineup. The problem with the 14 is that it suffers more from field curvature than the other 82s. Google "es 82 14mm field curvature" and make up your own mind. Personally I think it is a great eyepiece for the $99 I paid for it and I would buy it again.

    I hope the 11mm works out well I just bought to 30mm last month and love the view. I will provide a review once I get it and try it out. I hope it works well for a globular EP.

    I took the plunge and ordered that EP, and it's by far my favorite one in my collection. Great FOV, sharp to the edge, excellent color saturation. Recommend it if you can afford it sometime.

    You'll love it. I have the 30mm, 14mm and 11mm 82* ES for my Dobs, they are great. I have the 20mm and 16mm 68* as well. Nice eyepieces. Enjoy

    I have the ES82 11mm and its a super nice EP, nice big FOV and i use it for DSOs. It works great and frames globs and clusters nicely, you can also frame m81,m82 in same FOV as well as Leo triplet. In my dob i can also frame the entire moon at 110x

    I also have the 30mm ES82 and i use it as a low power scanner.

    Thanks for all the feedback, I figured for$99 I couldn't go wrong. I want another one to replace my 25mm. I really like the wide field of view.
