    Everyone has his or her own opinion of eyepieces ..BUT the Pentax XW series is rated as one of if not the best high powered eyepieces you can buy...And I agree Anything 10 mm or lower are just plain great.. the 14 and 20 show a slight amount of field curvature in Scts and the 30 and 40 are just plain too expensive

    Everyone has their own opinions on eyepieces ..

    I have to agree with you that Pentax XW series are some of the best eyepieces on the market.
