15mm planetary eyepiece is great
I like this 15mm Planetary eyepiece very much. The fit and finish is very nice and solid and I especially like the rotating eyecup. I’ve used it in my 11” SCT f10 telescope and it gave me very sharp views nearly edge to edge, and the contrast was...

Pleased with this eyepiece so far
I've only had a chance to use this eyepiece one night since I've gotten it but it works fine in my 80mm f5 telescope giving a 1 degree f.o.v. at 67x. I barlowed it for 133x to look at the moon and was surprised at the detail in this little ...

Replacement Eyepiece for Celestron Regal Spotting Scope
I don't believe this matches the quality that comes with the scope. Used for digiscoping and videos and pictures not as sharp as the original

Wireless Reticle Eyepiece
Ordered this eyepiece to aid in checking polar alignment and drift in preparation for photography. The reticle is works exactly as it should. I provides the lines necessary to improve alignment accuracy. The lighting adjustment is appropriate. That...

BST 20mm eyepiece is fantastic!
I just received the BST 20mm eyepiece from Agena Astro, and the fit and finish on this eyepiece is beautiful. The eyecup rotation is smooth and the view is crisp and clean snaps to focus terrestrially. I was so happy with it, I ordered another focal ...

BST 1.25" Flat Field Eyepiece - 27mm
4.0
Good Eyepiece
Good build. I bought the complete set to use with my William Optics Z61. The stars are sharp almost to the edge which is amazing with such a fast scope. This eyepiece has some flaring with brighter stars that the rest of the set does not exhibit, als...

Woks well!
I use the reticle for aligning my 15” Dobson. With the double line cross hair and illumination (which is easy to regulate at low intensity), it performs as advertised.

Excellent product for the money.
Excellent product for the money. They work well in everything from my 80mm f/11.6 to my 10" f/5. Sharp to the edges with excellent color and contrast. From deep sky to lunar and planetary, this and my other KK's are my most used lenses.

Very good performance and an excellent value
Goods views, edge performance is good though eye placement is a little finicky. ER is comfortable enough without glasses, but may be an issue for those with glasses. Still, ER is generous compared to Orhtos and Plossls at the same FL...very generous....

Agena 12mm Eyepiece
This is an excellent eyepiece, one of my favorites. Wide angle gives moderate magnification of entire full moon, crisp image and good contrast.

Shipping was fast, as usual from Agena. Nice to have the free bolt case included.

Great Buy for Some Scopes, but...
I have owned several GSO Superview EP's, and they all are excellent value. However, on an 8" SCT I found this to be too long a focal length EP as it was next to impossible to place the eye in the right position before losing sections to bla...

The eye placement is terrible
The eye release is too long. You have to really lean back to see anything. However, the rubber eye guard is not tall enough to protect you from stray light. Very poor design!
