<p>If you are one of the legions of folks who have "upgraded" to a big flat-screen television set lately, then you've probably become spoiled by its wonderfully expansive picture.</p>
<p>Well, if you are a telescope user, you will be equally spoiled by the wide-field window into the heavens served up by an Orion Stratus eyepiece. With an apparent field of 68 - which translates to a 71% greater viewing area than that of a typical 52 Plossl - Stratus eyepieces quite literally put more stars in your eyes. In the same way you feel more a part of the action watching a big-screen TV, with Stratus "sixty-eights" you will feel like you are really experiencing your celestial targets, rather than just viewing them from afar.</p>
<p>But it isn't just the Stratus' field of view that will widen your eyes. Each ocular has a sophisticated eight-element optical configuration that features a monster 1 1/4"-diameter eye lens to look into. Each also has a generous 20mm eye relief, so you'll get the "big picture" even if you wear eyeglasses. The optics are fully multi-coated to maximize light transmission to your eyes, and the lens edges are blackened to ensure excellent contrast.&#160;&#160;</p>
<p>Orion Stratus eyepieces fit in both 1.25" and 2" telescope focusers. They sport fold-down rubber eyeguards and a knobby rubber grip. The chrome barrels feature a setscrew security recess and are threaded for filters. Each Stratus eyepiece comes with protective lens and barrel caps.</p>
