Nice little EP
My goto for aligning and lower mag viewing. Helps me dial in my scope's goto and gives fantastic views of DSOs and solar system alike. Well worth the money.
Agena 1.25

5.0
Good match
The swa 15 is a perfect match as a planetary for my C90. Great views of Jupiter, Saturn and Mars.
Meade Series 5000 1.25
Meade Series 5000 1.25" HD-60 Eyepiece - 6.5mm # 07731
5.0
Works great in my f/5 refractor
This eyepiece has longer eye relief than my other short focal length eyepieces. My other eyepieces work great for me, but other people have trouble seeing stuff when I try to show them. This eyepiece has 50% more eye relief and a nice 60 degree appar...
Tele Vue 1.25
Tele Vue 1.25" DeLite Eyepiece - 3mm
5.0
THE BEST
Just as good as Pentax XW and TV Delos on the planets, except the planet colors show up better in the Delite.

Baader Hyperion-Aspheric Eyepiece - 31mm # HYP-31 2454631
5.0
hyperion 31mm
great eyepiece, lots of eye relief and easy to see full picture without touching the eyepiece. Great for outreach in my 9.25 celestron
Vixen 1.25
Vixen 1.25" NPL Twist-Up Plossl Eyepiece - 30mm # 39208
5.0
Good mid-level eyepiece
Not premium but quite a bit better than entry level. Being in a 1.25 inch body, it has a narrower field of view compared to most 2 inch eyepieces. But in my case the narrower field of view works perfectly since I use it in an 80mm ED scope that h...
Vixen 1.25
Vixen 1.25" SLV Lanthanum Eyepiece - 25mm # 37213
5.0
25mm Vixen Lanthanum
Very pleased with this eyepiece. It is nice and bright and makes very nice views of fainter objects. Compared to my TV Plossls it is more transmissive with crisper color, but it has some pincushion across the FOV and doesn't manage stray light a...
Vixen 1.25
Vixen 1.25" SLV Lanthanum Eyepiece - 4mm # 37203
5.0
Very nice eyepiece
The view through this eyepiece is very nice indeed. It has a narrow AFOV so the field isn't the widest. But it's looks really good.

5.0
Meade 4000 series Super Plossl
Purchased recently as an upgrade to my Meade Infinity 102, It's a definite improvement in visualizing, excellent quality optic performance and works just great. The service from Agena was also excellent, with great packaging, quick service and v...

Tele Vue 1.25" Plossl Eyepiece - 11mm
5.0
TV 11mm Plossl
Great inexpensive higher power views of Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. Really nice view of M7 in a shorter focal length scope. Very satisfied.

Agena 1.25" Cheshire Collimating Eyepiece for Refractors
5.0
great tool
I was able to use this eyepiece to align a focuser that was out of alignment.
I thought I had to collimate the lenses but this eyepiece saved me the extra effort.
Vixen 1.25
Vixen 1.25" SLV Lanthanum Eyepiece - 4mm # 37203
5.0
Excellent. Sharp images and comfortable to use.
The Vixen 4mm SLV eyepiece is excellent in terms of performance and comfort in use. Images are sharp and color free, light scatter is absent and the 50° field is plenty for lunar or planetary observation. Contrast is high and color fidelity very goo...
Agena 1.25
Agena 1.25" Starguider Dual ED Eyepiece - 5mm
4.0
Nice eyepiece, but better than 5mm TMB Planetary II??
After doing a lot of research, I bought this eyepiece to see if it was going to be the "one-two knockout punch" for my longtime and well-used 5mm TMB PLanetary II eyepiece. Overall, construction of the Starguider looks and feels very solid...
