We are pleased to introduce a new 100 degree AFOV Ethos eyepiece in an 8mm focal length. In addition to matching all the key performance criteria of its 13mm sibling, the new 8mm Ethos is parfocal in 1 1/4" focusers with Radians, Plęssls, Type 6 Naglers and 1.25" Panoptics. Further, its lighter weight and smaller diameter than the 13mm Ethos makes the 8mm suitable for anyone using a binocular viewer. Another application is for spotting scope set-ups with the Tele Vue 60 degree 1 1/4" diagonal. In comparing it to our 8-24mm Zoom eyepiece, the 8mm Ethos has the power of the 8mm Zoom and 83% of the field of the 24mm setting!
An important benefit of the combination of large apparent field of view and shorter focal length is that for a given field in the sky, higher magnification results in a darker sky background. Fainter stars become visible and more detail is seen on all deep sky objects. Ethos provides another big magnification/contrast jump, yielding dramatic views simply not previously possible in any telescope. With the smaller exit pupil, eyesight limitations are also reduced.
8mm Ethos delivers: 100deg. apparent field (50% larger in area than 82 degree Naglers), comfortable eye-relief, accepts DIOPTRX eyesight astigmatism correctors, distortion correction, high contrast and on-axis sharpness for planetary viewing. It is the "do-it-all" eyepiece perfect for all scopes that can utilize this focal length.
