The Levenhuk Zoom Eyepiece is a varied focal-length eyepiece that can completely replace several eyepieces. You can easily locate an object for observation at a close focal distance and then study it in detail at maximum magnification. The twist-up rubber eyecup allows for comfortable observations with or without eyeglasses. All this makes this eyepiece a must-have for any keen astronomer.
The scale engraved on the shell allows you to easily set the desired focal length within the 8–24-mm range, and the view is guaranteed to be crystal-clear at any focal length. All the optical elements are made of glass.
The eyepiece has a T-thread under the eyecup (M38x0.75) allowing you to connect an SLR camera using a T-ring (not included in the kit). Note that to connect a T-ring you need to remove the rubber eyecup.

How does this differ between the Ra model, and what is the apparent field of view for the Ra model? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Dear Jason, thank you for your inquiry. These models have different specifications. Moreover, the RA model comes with more advanced fully multi-coated optics. Is there any additional information you might need?
Thanks for your answer! If I buy this eyepiece I guess I won't need to buy Barlow lens anymore? Or do you recommend to buy it to use with those two eyepieces included in the kit? Thank you! Levenhuk Customer Service:
Barlow lens would not hurt, you can combine it with eyepieces included in the kit indeed.
Does the field of view changes inside the eyepiece when changing zoom (the circle of vision, I don't really know how it's called, the frame or whatever, with pancratic binoculars it changes, it's not very convenient). Is it the same with this eyepiece? Is image quality provided by zoom eyepieces any worse than by regular eyepieces? Levenhuk Customer Service:
1. Yes, the same as with pancratic binoculars. 2. It's more reasonable to use eyepieces with constant magnification.
