Astro-Tech 32mm Titan Type II

Discuss this article in our forums
After finally pursuing my curiosity in astronomy this summer, the requirement to upgrade from my two plossl's was evident to bring my Orion XT8 to maximum potential. I believed that the dark sky's of Maine had more to offer than what the two scope manufacturer eyepieces had to offer. I do not have much experience is the astronomy world though have been researching best bang for the buck. Central Maine does not offer a heavy interest in this hobby so I have had to rely on my instincts from research. After reviewing several of the better known name brands, I elected to purchase The Astro-Tech 32mm Titan II. Not a lot of information exist though what was found was positive.

All I can say is wow!!. This has opened up a whole new world of enjoyment in viewing.

Some of the positves:
  • Very well crafted
  • Sharp crisp images over most of the viewing field
  • Eye cup is quite comfortable and after realizing the need for this on this size of eye piece I would not buy another without.
I was so impressed with the overall performance of this product that I will most likely pursue the higher power 1.25mm paradigm dual eyepieces in the near future. I may be incorrect though the average astronomer would have a hard time justifying the extra dollars spent on the name brand products when comparing to these.
