Perfect medium power eyepiecePros:
Strong Construction,Accurate,Compact,Lightweight,Easy to Use,Quality LensesCons: Comments:
This is a great medium power eyepiece on my 6" f/6.7 dob (72x). It gives a 1.14 degree field of view that is sharp nearly to the edge and has excellent contrast. The field is so wide I don't have to move the scope so often making it easy to use at our club's public nights. It barlows very well and provides a sharp to the edge image at 216x with my older 3x barlow. The twist up eye guard also helps keep the lens cleaner when a lot of people use it. It's waterproof and has no black-outs or ghost images. It has the safety undercut but at least it doesn't have the tapered barrel which I do not like. I'll stick with the Meade UWA's, thank you.

Excellent performance, unbeatable valuePros:
Easy to Use,Strong Construction,Quality LensesCons: Comments:
A very good eyepiece with superb optical qualities and decent eye relief
Very good transmission and contrast
In my F5.7 refractor I get excellent edge to edge correction.
Slight field curvature was noted but way less than other eyepieces with the same focal length from competing companies.
And all those at an unbeatable price
Get it while you can.
