Beautiful, crisp images with tremendous AFOVPros: Cons: Comments:
For the (comparatively) low price of this eyepiece, I was moderating my expectations. I'm happy to say that it looks great. The images are sharp and bright all over the field. I see no obvious distortion either.
The end of the eyepiece is a little weird because there is no eyecup. When I'm actually looking through the eyepiece, I don't *miss* the eyecup, but if feels odd as I put my head down to it.

Nice fovPros: Cons: Comments:
Use this with my 8 inch dob and it great. Its heavy and big and awesome. Good eye relief and you can look around without the kidney beaning effect. Nice. Took off a star because of the greese on the threads.
