Customer Feedback on these eyepieces:
“I managed to put the Kson eyepieces through their paces. Jupiter and Saturn were very visible and using the Kson gear in my C90 Mak the results were, eventually, eye-popping. I say eventually because I found that achieving focus was a tad finicky but once I got the hang of the subtleties it was all systems go. I found the 10.5mm produced lovely clear images which were replicated through the 7.7mm. Using a 2x Barlow with the 10.5mm was right on the edge of overpowering the Mak, after all it was x240, but when seeing conditions were good it delivered. At one stage I barlowed the 7.7mm but it was a bit much so I modified the Barlow back to x1.5 with stunning results – crisp to the edges.
The highlight came on Monday night around 2230 when, thanks to the Sky and Telescope website, I managed to get a fairly clear bead on Jupiter’s Great Red Spot (more brown than red). A couple of nights later I concentrated on Saturn and actually discerned some separation, only just, of the Cassini Rings. It’s all well and good to read of such things and see photographs of them but to behold them with your own peepers is very special. Once again many thanks for your advice and excellent customer service.” – Randall
