    Default Explore scientific EP 30mm 82 degree $249



    I have been looking at buying a new 30mm for my xt10 just happened to notice that it was another $50 off the price. So I took the plung, anyway posting in case anyone else was considering a purchase I ordered from the Explore Scientific web site.

    That's one heck of an eyepiece. I really love mine -- over 2 degrees TFOV in my f/4.7 10" scope! It's like a "super finder"!

    I was amazed at the price I have been looking at it for a couple of weeks. It will be my first eye piece, I also ordered a telrad, to help get my scope alighned.
