    The HR 2.0 mm Eyepieces are designed for observation of subtle differences of the surface of the planets. The high resolution eyepiece deliver breathtaking, superb images with extremely high level of definition and contrast.

    "Their high precision build, over-the-top attention to light suppression and scatter and contrast, comfortable eye relief, very positive focus snap, and uncompromising views make it, in my humble opinion, an optical and engineering work of art." -William A. Paolini Oct 6, 2016

    ? Approx. 100% Strehl ratio on the axis
    The resolving power outperforms similar eyepieces designed for planetary viewing. The HR-series maintains
    more than a 97% Strehl ratio to the edge of the field of view when combined with a Vixen AX103S refractor.
    In comparison, the ratio is about 90% with the use of a standard LV2.5mm eyepiece.

    ? Suitable for Newtonian telescopes with fast primary mirrors
    The HR-series work extremely well with the Vixen R200SS as it has the ability to correct coma aberration. Even at the edge of the field of view, the HR-series have a 93% Strehl ratio. In comparison the Strehl ratio with use of the LV2.5mm falls rapidly as the viewing object is moved toward the edge of the field of view. The ratio is only 93% at a
    fifth from the center and 0% at the edge. Conventional eyepiece specifications merely show the performance
    when an object is put in the center of the field of view of the eyepiece. As a result, the resolving power
    declines as you move toward the edge of the field of view. The HR-series are best suited for observing the
    surface of the moon to extend your view to the entire field of view.

    ? Simple 5 elements in 3 groups lens design
    While most eyepieces are constructed from 7 or 8 lens elements, the Vixen HR-series are constructed with
    a 5 lens elements design to achieve the largest possible transmission of light. The absorption and reflection
    of light are virtually eliminated.

    ? Enhanced light transmission characteristics
    The Vixen AS-coating achieves extremely high light transmission of 99.9% per lens surface. It is applied
    to each of the surfaces to deliver extremely high contrast images.

    ? Complete stray light correction
    The grooved lens frame construction contributes to the reduction of stray light. The inside of the eyepiece is
    perfectly threaded and blackened to prevent deterioration of the image from stray light. The inner baffle rings
    effectively stop any stray light. Even a hint of reflection which might occur on the tip of the sleeve is eliminated.

    You can estimate the deliver time to your home or business by viewing the "Ships Within" information listed with every product. This refers to the time from when you place your order, to the time it leaves the warehouse. The total delivery time for your order is calculated from the time your order is placed, until you receive it. The diagram below shows how the total delivery time is broken down into pre-ship processing time and shipping time. 

    Processing time is the time it takes from when you submit your order to when the product leaves the warehouse. The "Ships Within" time frame listed with each of our products on the website applies to this time frame. For example, if your order a product that reads "Ships Within: 2 Weeks", this means that the product typically leaves the factory within two weeks. If there will be any additional time required to process your order, we will notify you immediately to confirm the delivery period. This time is needed for products that are shipped to you directly from our manufacturers. The manufacturers need this time to fulfill your order. In some cases, the items are custom built.  Shipping time is measured when your order leaves the warehouse to when it arrives at your address. Actual shipping time can vary between 2-5 business days.

    Vixen HR 2mm eyepiece performance

    I have only been able to test the eyepiece on one night due to poor weather conditions but it did perform perfectly on 32Ori which is a double with only 1.27" separation. Before having this eyepiece I used my TV 6-3 zoom with a barlow but with the Vixen alone the image is brighter and so better. Very happy so far. will keep testing soon.
