About the Sky Mentor 8mm-24mm Zoom Eyepiece - 1.25"...
Why buy several Eyepieces, when you can own one that does the job of them all? Check out the Sky Mentor 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece!
This zoom eyepiece is remarkable because it is one of a kind. Most Zoom eyepieces are poorly manufactured and cheaply made or very expensive and way overpriced. Its about time someone came up with a good quality zoom eyepiece at a reasonable price, and Sky Mentor has done it again with the Sky Mentor 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece!
Consider these benefits: Instead of fumbling in the dark and changing eyepieces, you merely rotate the knurled barrel to the power of your choice. Stop looking through a peephole, enjoy the luxury of good eye relief. The Sky Mentor 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece will work with all brands of telescopes with 1.25" focuser and different makes of Telescopes, Meade, Celestron, Tasco, Bushnell, Swift, Orion, etc.
Simply insert the Sky Mentor 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece into telescope focuser. The eyepiece barrel rotates without moving the eyepiece up and down, so your eye never moves position. There are 4 different positions marked on the barrel indicating the Zoom eyepiece focal length in use at the time: 24mm, 18mm, 12mm, and 8mm. Of course, you can also use the ranges in between these numbers. It'''s like a whole selection of eyepieces rolled into one!
One of our customers, Mr. Doug Cann, of Vancouver BC recently commented on the Sky Mentor zoom eyepiece:
"Just to let you know that I have recently had a chance to test my new Zoom Sky Mentor eyepiece at high and low powers. I cannot see any difference between the Sky Mentor Zoom eyepiece or the Meade Zoom eyepiece (ed note: selling for substantially more). If I did not know otherwise, I would have thought I was looking through the same eyepiece."
