Finally got a chance to play with the new eyepiece my wonderfull wife got me for Christmas. I am really pleased with this piece. It gives spectacular views. Very crisp and clean. Star clusters are absolutely amazing; and the Orion Nebula was incredible. It also works very well with my ultrascopic barlow when I need a little more power. I also got stunning views of Venus. For those of us on a budget this is a great eyepiece.
