Agena 1.25
Agena 1.25" Starguider Dual ED Eyepiece - 12mm
5.0
Good at f/5
I purchased this for use with 130mm f/5 Newtonian reflector. There's astigmatism near the edge of the field, as one would expect with a fast scope, but it's not objectionable. With an inexpensive barlow lens most of the edge astigmatism dis...

GSO 1.25" Plossl Eyepiece - 20mm

Excellent value
Beautiful, crisp views. I'm a beginning astronomer, but have used pro still and video equipment for years. I'm impressed by the build quality and the clear views this eyepiece affords.

Agena 1.25" Super Wide Angle (SWA) Eyepiece - 10mm
I'm a beginner but there is definitely a bid difference between the stock eyepiece and this one. Yes, this is a super wide angle and the stock was not. The clarity is much better and eye relief is much better. You can also tell by the weight of ...
Celestron 1.25
Celestron 1.25" Luminos Eyepiece - 15mm # 93432
5.0
Great eyepiece
Excellent clarity with a Celestron 127 mm Mak. Need to view without glasses to take advantage of the wide apparent field of view. Nifty eye cups. Easily distinguish 1/6 inch holes @ 200 yrds.
Kokusai Kohki 1.25
Kokusai Kohki 1.25" Fujiyama HD-OR Orthoscopic Eyepiece (Japan) - 6mm
5.0
Fujiama HD orthos
Going back to old-school certainly is refreshing when you have such quality Japanese lenses to look through. Sure they have narrower fields of view compared to the wide Field eyepieces of today. It’s the clarity and “snap” of the image that imm...

I love this eyepiece! In
I love this eyepiece! In my Orion XT8 Dobsonian, it yields beautiful, immersive wide-field views, with crisp focus across most of the view; only subtle distortion near the edges.

Meade Series 5000 1.25" HD-60 Eyepiece - 25mm # 07735

Works Great
I like the 25mm HD-60 better than the 25mm X-Cel LX
Celestron 1.25
Celestron 1.25" Omni Plossl Eyepiece - 15mm # 93320
5.0
Favorite Plossls
The Celestron Omni EP's are my favorite Plossl eyepieces for longer focal ratio scopes. I use the Omni 15mm, in both a f/10 refractor and an f/8 6" dobs. In both scopes, I get clear sharp crisp views. In the f/8 this is a favorite for brigh...

Agena 1.25" Wireless Illuminated Reticle Eyepiece with Focusable Single Crosshair - 24mm
5.0
1.25", 24mm Illuminated Reticle Focasable Eyepiece
Once I remembered it had a focus it looks great. When out of focus the red reticle can be quite wide. I like the wide field of view in the 24mm. Very clear view.
BST 1.25
BST 1.25" 58-deg UWA Planetary Eyepiece - 7mm
4.0
Overall very good, only one complaint
I have had the 4mm and 6mm version of this eyepiece for some time so I kinda knew what to expect. The 6mm is very good; this 7mm version is equally good except for having a bit more scatter (the halo around bright objects). But its still a very good ...

12.5 and 9mm Fujiyama HDOrtho
They’re are very few eyepieces in my astronomy hobby/career that I can truly say have that “snap” to them...these deliver!

Agena 2
Agena 2" Super Wide Angle (SWA) Eyepiece - 26mm

Great bang for the buck
Recently switched to 2 in eyepieces and this one performed better than I expected for the price. With an 8in SCT I can't find anything I don't like about it.
Agena 1.25
Agena 1.25" Wide Angle (WA) Eyepiece - 8mm
4.0
Better than most
When I purchased this EP a few years ago it was more to cover a gap in my eyepiece collection than the 60 degree FOV. How things can change with time and a bit of experience. My first impression upon receiving the item was favorable. It was careful...
Agena 1.25
Agena 1.25" Zoom Eyepiece 8-24mm with T-Thread
5.0
Nice zoom!
This is a nice zoom as a grab & go. It's labeled star guider. I've only used it to look at the moon & Saturn it produced very nice views on par with my plossel eyepieces. Price was right as well.
BST 1.25

BST 1.25" 25mm 58 degree
This was a perfect improvement for my 140mm f/3.6 Schmidt-Newtonian. It gives me a wider FOV for the second step in location of bright stars; the first step being location in the Orion 6X30 RACI finder with its 7 degree FOV. And a bargain too! In thi...

Top-Drawer, as Usual
Williams-Optic stuff is always terrific. This eyepiece is no different. EXCELLENT quality, performance and look/feel. Great service, yet again, from AgenaAstro!!
