    I've got the 4mm and it is fantastic! Right up there with Pentax XW and Delos for best planetary views.
    From what has been posted elsewhere the whole lineup is great. But it is kinda hard getting used to 62
    degrees after using the 70 degree ones for almost 10 years now.
    Newtman but some refractors allowed.

    I have the 7mm and it's superb, normally the highest power I use with my XT8 (171x).

    I have the 18.2mm version. I see it mainly has a planetary eyepiece and it definitely Barlows well. It is like looking through a 60° orthoscopic and the housing is beautifully made (although the eye lens dust cap easily falls off lol). I had a 7mm DeLite momentarily, but I had to return two due to very visible debris in the field of view. Eventually I bought a 7mm Fujiyama ortho'.

    You were thinking about getting them yesterday, and you bought them all today and tested already? That's pretty quick, I'm impressed!
