Product Info

Manufacturer Description

Flexible rubber eyeguards reduce ambient light and glare reflections, thus protecting your dark adaptation, while providing the viewer with comfort for maximum visual effectiveness. Eyeguards assure proper eye-to-lens positioning and also protect the optical surface from grime and oil. The eyeguards are made of flexible, yet strong rubber so they will stretch a bit (3-5mm) beyond the nominal diameter noted below to fit over many other eyepieces.

Please note that these are sold individually.

Nominal diameter ~33.5mm (unstretched). Winged eyeguard that fits Antares' 1.25" Ultima Plossl, Abbe Ortho, and many other eyepieces. As a reference, the diameter of the upper barrel these can fit on is 32mm (Antares Plossl) and 34mm (Antares Ortho). Made in Japan.

      4.0 It's pretty much the only choice.


      Strong Construction,Compact



      This is pretty much the only choice for reticle eyepieces and for finder scopes. And it is only available here. I did purchase another brand a while back that had a flashing feature but it was big, bulky, and broke after first use.

      It would be nice for these things to turn off automatically after a few hours of non use. I just can't seem to remember to turn them off and I'm always replacing batteries.

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
