Olivon Manufacturing Group rolls out its new 80° ED Wide Angle Eyepiece series. Each of these eyepieces incorporates extra-low-dispersion elements for color-free images, and every air-to-glass surface is multicoated to reduce light scatter and to produce sharp views across the entire visible field. Collapsible rubber eye guards and end caps are also included with each purchase. The 11- and 16-mm eyepieces are 1¼-inch format ($74), whereas the 15-, 20-, and 30-mm focal-length models are formatted for 2-inch telescope focusers ($190). See the manufacturer’s website for a list of dealers.
