I have for sale an Antares 25 mm Plossl eyepiece. The 1¼" Antares eyepieces are premium eyepieces at very unpremium prices. Another mail-order dealer calls them “ultrascopics” and sells them at substantially higher prices. They are designed in Japan by one of its most respected optical designers, and manufactured to exacting tolerances and to a higher degree of surface polish than similarly priced but older and less sophisticated designs.

This is a very good medium to low power (depending on the focal length of your telescope) high contrast eyepiece, and an excellent choice to replace the so-so 26mm eyepiece that comes with many moderately-priced telescopes.

It has an 1¼" barrel and an apparent field of view of 52 °. It features 5 optical elements, offering 17 mm of eye relief, in a package weighing only 5 ounces.

This eyepiece sells new for $74 plus shipping.
I will sell this one for $40 shipped via Priority Mail to any address in the CONUS. If interested, make me an offer as this EP is not getting the use that it deserves.
It is in excellent condition. Included with the eyepiece: box, end caps and a bolt-style case. Also a winged eyecup that is not in the photo below.
Prefer payment by PayPal (no additional fees), but will also accept money order, cash, or check.

Thanks for looking,
