Manufacturer Description

Looking for $400 performance in an under-$100 eyepiece? Then you can look no further.

With features like a wide 70 degree apparent FOV, five elements of fully multi-coated high-index glass, beautiful black anodized body and barrel, the Agena Super Wide Angle (SWA) eyepieces are as close as you can get. These eyepieces will give you crisp and wide views of the Moon, planets, galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters, rivaling the performance of much higher priced eyepieces.

Features:

  • 70 degree apparent field of view, for that immersed in space feeling
  • Available in 1.25" (10, 15 and 20mm focal lengths) and 2" (26, 32 and 38mm) formats to cover a wide range of magnifications and true fields of view
  • Super sharp, with excellent aberration correction and extremely high resolution rivaling higher-priced eyepieces
  • Blackened lens edges, anti-reflection threads for maximum image contrast
  • Fold-down rubber eyecups, rubber grip rings for comfort and safety
  • Sleek black barrel with safety undercut to reduce the possibility of the eyepiece slipping out of the focuser or diagonal
  • Light in weight for their size, thus minimizing or eliminating the need to rebalance your telescope

See why Erik Wilcox, reviewing the Agena SWA 2-inch eyepieces for Astronomy Technology Today magazine [Oct. 2007, pp. 36-38], said:
All these three eyepieces offer a great value, with a lot of "bang for the buck." Agena AstroProducts has really raised the bar with this line, and in the under $100 category, I feel that it would be difficult to find another line of 2-inch eyepieces that offer better performance for the price.

Reviewing our 20mm 1.25-inch SWA eyepiece on Cloudy Nights [Jun. 2007], Nathan Melendez concluded:
"Excellent performance in an inexpensive package. Highly recommended whether you wear glasses or not. These are great all purpose eyepieces...an incredible buy!!"

      4.0 All Ok so far

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I've been hampered by really bad weather so far. I did take a quick look at the moon through all three Eyepieces and didn't see anything that would distract me at the edges of the F.O.V. - Only very minor coma (@ f/5 though the 38mm . No diffraction rigs, nothing bad jumped at me. I was concerned that the eye relief on the 25mm might be a issue, but that turned out to be O.K. (I wear glasses) Cost / Benefit ratio very good so far,,,,,,,,Jury is still out long-term though.

      5.0 Quality Very Good, Value Excellent

      Pros:

      Sharp,Strong Construction,Almost Parafocal,Neutral Color,Quality Lenses,Contrast

      Cons:

      Comments:

      These eyepieces work well in F6 telescopes, and very well in F6.5 and above. Very good engineering and manufacture. I have and use TV and UO with similar AFOV. But for star parties, Astronomy Merit Badge, Grab and Go, other "many hands, eager hands" uses these just can't be beat. The set of three costs less than one of "the best". Peace of mind combines with the Agena SWA very good optics to create comparable views in the central 2/3s of the field, with the surround enhancing the experience. Include Agena's case, excellent customer service, and prompt free shipping and you are at 5 stars.

      5.0 Nearly the same performance as my higher priced eyepieces

      Pros:

      Easy to Use,Strong Construction,Quality Lenses

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I bought the 38mm used and loved it so much I almost immediately bought the 32mm and 26mm from Agena. For the price you cannot beat these eyepieces, period. I found myself using these over my other eyepieces costing 3X as much. Edge to edge clarity and they produce a quality image through my 9.25" SCT. These are perfect for star parties or public events were you can get spectacular views and not worry about your $300+ eyepieces.

      Using these eyepieces is like looking thru a big picture window. You feel like you could almost step thru into a new world.

      4.0 Acidity - distinctness field - big field

      Pros:

      Quality Lenses,Compact,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Heavy

      Comments:

      I have this product roughly 2 months and am very happy. It came very fast in Greece and in excellent packing. I tried them compared to Hyperion Baader. Personally I find for them better their Agena in the acidity, the big field, and in the low price. The stars
      they was specific almost in the all field. The deformity in utmost the field they is small and does not influence the observation. I believe that I would change to them only with Nagler.

      4.0 SWA EPs

      Pros:

      Accurate,Quality Lenses,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I had read about the advantages of these SWA 2" EPs. I was really looking forward to getting the immersed in the sky effect. I was not disappointed. For the money, these are great. I would not hesitate in recommending these. I use these with my medium speed 80ED and the FOV and eye relief are very nice.

      4.0 Great Set of Eyepieces at a Great Price

      Pros:

      Strong Construction,Quality Lenses

      Cons:

      Soft at edges

      Comments:

      Very good price for a good set of eyepieces. Bear in mind these are no Naglers or Panoptics but at a fraction of the price, you'll get your money's worth.
