    Exclamation GSO eyepieces - not all the same



    Guan Sheng Optical sells their eyepieces through 3 dealers in the US. Two of those dealers sell a generic version of the GSO plossl and only 1 sells their plossl under the GSO label. Upon further scrutiny, the two generics aren't exactly the same specs as the GSO plossls. Either the eye relief is less or the apparent FOV is less. The reviews for the GSO plossl eyepieces seem to be favorable, so I started to research this manufacturer. I just wanted to share what I found. For those interested, their web site is: Guan Sheng Optical.
