      4.0 Good eyepiece, but smallish AFOV


      Accurate,Easy to Use,Strong Construction,Quality Lenses


      Feels Less Than 65 Degree


      Good quality eyepiece, but it feels like less than 65 degrees when viewing through it. Some lateral color also on Jupiter and lots on Venus. Great for small deep sky objects.
