I think it is time for a new test drive Gonna try out the new DeLites over the next several weeks and also see how they compare to other similar focal length eyepieces. Mainly interested in the planetary performance of the 5mm...so a 5mm XO will be called into service as well. Should be fun. Will post progress snippets here along the way and put up a full review article when done. Today gave a really quick look between the 9mm DeLite and the 9mm Morpheus in the P.S.T. solar scope. Both put up gorgeous views, high contrast, very detailed. Too much of a neck-in-neck battle between them so no clear winner. I felt though that the exit pupil was easier to hold in the DeLite. Often in daytime solar long eye relief eyepieces can be a chore to view with due to the bright surroundings, but the DeLite definitely easier one to use for solar.
