  Accessory Accessory: Astronomy: Accessory - EASY POWER

EASY POWER

Eyepieces with a short focal length (4 to 8 mm) provide high power, but, as a rule, the higher the power of the eyepiece, the shorter its eye relief. The shorter the eye relief, the closer your eye must be to the eyepiece, making it less comfortable to use.
