    Default Flat field EPs?



    I am looking for feedback on the flat field EPs. They are/were available from many vendors like Orion, BST (as shown below), Smart Astronomy, Lunt ,etc.

    I am considering them as lightweight, small size EPs for the travel set. How are they compared in performance to similar priced EPs like X-Cel LX, HD60 or Paradigm Dual ED?

    The one and only that I have used was the 12mm. I couldn't tell any difference between it and the X-Cel LXs or the HDs. I've never used any of the Paradigms. That one was used in the ST90 that I had with me at a star party where the owner of the 12mm Flat Field EP was at. I also had the 8" SCT with me but did not use the EP in that scope.
