Eye relief ocular.

Vixen's newSLV Lanthanum Eyepiece series ($169 each) is designed with the eyeglass wearer in mind. Each of these 1 1/4-inch oculars is designed with 20 millimeters of eye relief and a twist-up eyecup, allowing eyeglass wearers to comfortably enjoy the entire 50[degrees] field. The SLV Eyepieces also incorporate a 7-element design in 4 groups with fully multicoated glass-to-air surfaces, a scratch-resistant coating on the field lens, and a rare-Earth lanthanum element. The unique polygonal barrel is easy to grip and will not roll away when placed on its side. The series is available in 2.5, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 15, 20, and 25-mm focal lengths to suit most observing needs.
