    Default Vixen eyepieces



    Doe's anybody have/use vixen EP's? are they any good?
    As i live in Japan these are common and cost about $70-80 USD for 5-9mm 45-55 degree view. They have large lenses to look through compared to the std ones I have seen.
    there are two types, i'm looking at the larger more expensive ones.
    I may get a couple if people say they are ok.

    Haven't tried the NLVs, but the LVWs are very good.
