    Default Explore Scientific 14mm 100 degree Eyepieces



    You're welcome JG.
    --------------------------------------------------------

    Here's a visual perspective of the two siblings, the Explore Scientific 100° 14mm N2 and the 14mm 82°:


    ES 14mm 100°; ES 14mm 82°

    With the 100° towering above the 82°; now for the underbellies:


    Bottom view, ES 14mm 100°; ES 14mm 82°

    The 100° version on the left is the waterproof/nitrogen-purged EP while the ES 14mm 82° is Series I, not waterproof yet (N2 version is); examining the bottom of the two, the 100° does look like it is very well sealed and air-tight, but I'm not about to test its waterproof feature anytime soon.

    Best,

    Hernando

    I have the 14 100* and enjoy it very much and great for the price. No bath for mine either. Have fun with great views.
