GSO has enhanced the mechanical design of some of their most popular eyepieces to create an effective and innovative eyepiece that can be used not only for visual observations, but also for variable projection photography through a telescope. This new series Camera Projection Lens (CP Lens) is perfect for use with compact Digital or SLR cameras.
The top of this 1.25" eyepiece features a standard T / T2 male thread (M42x0.75) that can be exposed by unscrewing a threaded guard. Using a T-ring specific to your camera brand (not included), you can connect your camera easily to this eyepiece. This combination can be inserted into any telescope with a 1.25" focuser tube. The outer sleeve / barrel of the CP Lens eyepiece can then be adjusted to move upward or downward for optimum viewing performance, and can be extended until you have reached its perfect viewing position for your imaging needs.
The Ploss CPL eyepiece series features fully multi-coated lenses, good apparent fields of view, excellent contrast, and the convenience of a versatile photography adapter and eyepiece in one intergated accessory for your telescope.

Finally ImagingPros: Cons: Comments:
Used this eyepiece with 2x shorty barlow to image sun today with a Canon 5ti on a Coronado PST Double Stack. I have not been successful using this eyepiece with Skyrys 236M camera as additional extension is required between eyepiece and image sensor. I have additional 19mm tube stack on order to solve problem.
With the DSLR images focused well and and were pleasing for a single frame image. Will test to see if that is enough extension.
The eyepiece is very well built with excellent optics. Have not used it yet for visual observing but I understand it is very good. The sliding barrel is stout and allow adjustment of image magnification. Barrel lock is secure when tightened.
Very nicely built piece of optics and will prove very useful

I bought this eyepiece to attach directly to my Canon 60D and with the right T adapter it works like a charm. You can adjust the position of the eyepiece so the field of view covers the APS-C sensor of the camera. Just waiting for some clear dark skies now.

During the recent transit of Venus I spent an hour struggling with a small digital camera to get handheld afocal images through a 26mm eyepiece that had a too narrow FOV for the subject. Then I discovered that Agena was offering these excellent GSO eyepieces that could almost instantly be attached directly to my CCD imagers and NexImage webcam via a T thread for afocal work with a decent wide-field lens set. So I bought the 32mm and 40mm. I now see that Agena has a 42mm and I may have to order that. These lenses also function as outstanding eyepieces and are extremely well made. The price is outstanding. I am quite satisfied with the eyepieces and always satisfied with Agena's excellent customer service.
