Good crisp eyepiece for the money.Pros: Cons: Comments:
I am using this with a Celestron 5" mak for terred trial viewing. It gives good crisp images. No problem seeing 1/6" holes at 200 yrds. Not a jaw dropping FOV, but perfect for my needs.

Great value!Pros: Cons: Comments:
I finally got some clear skies to use the new eyepiece.
The build quality seems excellent. And it looks nice too. And though that shouldn't matter, it does to me. Stars were extremely pinpoint, with very sharp focus on details of very faint galaxies. It was used with a 14-inch f/4.5 Dobsonian telescope, with no coma corrector, so the very far edges of the field had some distortion, but the same or less than much more expensive eyepieces I tried on the same night, so this is no fault of the eyepiece. The 60 degree AFOV is not as large as some other eyepiece in this focal length range, but is plenty, and worth the nice flat field it delivers.

Well pleased.Pros: Cons: Comments:
I purchased this eyepiece and used it at my club's public observing night on Dec. 16th in North Central Ohio for the first time. I'm not an expert on the subject of expensive eyepieces, i.e. Televue, etc., mainly because of their expense but am totally satisfied with this Meade 25mm eyepiece. It provides a nice view with plenty of contrast and pinpoint star images. I'm looking forward to using it again at the next opportunity. Agena Astro, in my opinion, offers a broad inventory coupled with excellent service.
