    I have the Williams 33mm and use it a lot for finding objects , I am a circle user with no go to's and can usually get my objects in this eyepiece using my circle coordinates . It works similar to my Hyperions but with a little wider field , in my newbie opinion it is a good bang for the buck and mine gets lots of use ........................... when it is clear !

    whats bst? ive heard there simillar if not the same as some made by orion and a version by zhumell , i had a couple of the zhumells once. they were ok and decent compared to others in that price range. now at the moment im kind of fond of the hypereons and ES eyepieces, the ES have been getting allot of rave reviews, especially on the 82 degree versions which ive noticed have been out of stock everywhere i look.
