      3.0 Good eyepiece, but could be better


      Strong Construction,Quality Lenses




      I was excited to get one of these, but when I had the chance to go to the field after receiving it I noticed the contrast and resolving power for globular clusters was not as good as with my old Meade series 4000...

      Granted, this is almost like having a 2'' eyepiece in terms of comfort when observing (it's huge!), but I'm not entirely satisfied with the results because I was expecting an improve from the old series.

      Maybe getting a Televue Plossl eyepiece for a little more money would've been a wiser decision, but anyway this is a good eyepiece, just not as good as I was expecting.

      Bottom Line: Would you recommend this item? Yes
