LV series eyepi...

LV series eyepieces: the extra-long eye-relief is prized for comfortable viewing and eyepiece/afocal projection imaging.

A Vixen-designed eyepiece that uses low-dispersion Lanthanum glass.

  • 3-group 5-element lenses or 4-group 7-element lenses
  • extra-long 20mm eye-relief allows comfortable observation - even with glasses - and is prized for eyepiece projection imaging.
  • excellent field of view, virtually eliminating ghosting and flare
  • Fold-down rubber eyeguards
  • Fully Multi-Coated


"Half the price of other Long-eye relief models, the Vixen Lanthanum eyepieces are ideal on small scopes that can't handle hefty wide-field eyepieces, providing good eye relief and a tall eyepiece for comfortable viewing."

"Among the best values in quality wide-angle eyepieces are the Vixen Lanthanum Superwides, made by Vixen of Japan. Each features 20mm of eye relief - an added bonus. Edge performance is very good...."

— The Backyard Astronomers Guide, Revised Edition 2002, pg. 73

LV 2.5mm
"[A] very nice eyepiece for those power views of the moon. It's like flying over it up close. I use this eyepiece with 3" and 4" (Stellarvue and Genesis) refractors; and when seeing conditions are good, nice detail can be noticed on Jupiter and Saturn."
"An excellent high contrast very high power EP."
"This is a high power eyepiece that one can really use."
"Was pleasantly surprised by it's performance. No false color, good field."
