      Comments about Vixen Plossl NPL Telescope Eyepiece:

      These are good quality eyepieces. I have the 8mm and 10mm versions. The view is clear and sharp. I took away 1 star because the field of view is 50 degrees, compared to 52 degrees with other Plossl eyepieces. Also, the eye relief seems slightly shorter. Other than that, they work great.

            Bought the 40mm eyepiece...It was finely constructed and works quite well in my Zhumell Z12 Dobsonian telescope. The twist out eyecup feature is a plus. Overall, for the price, you probably won't find a better one!

                  I originally bought one of the 15mm's to start upgrading the cheap eyepieces that came with my Bushnell 114mm. The first views of Saturn were great! I could pick out 4 of its moons and could see separation between the rings and the planet. For the price it's a good option to find out which magnifications work with your scope. I have since upgraded my scope but still use this lens. I have seen several clusters and nebulae with this lens.

                    I purchased the 30mm model to use for low power viewing in my Celestron 8se. I wanted a plossl for this duty because it has only 4 elements. (Less glass surfaces equates to brighter views of diffuse objects) The overall quality of fit and finish is superb, and the twist up eye shield is great. I have had some of the designs that have them molded on and they tend to crack over time from weathering. This wont happen with the NPL design. The views are crystal clear. It doesnt gray up the background sky as is the case with lesser models.
                    Definitely worth the price.

                        Comments about Vixen Plossl NPL Telescope Eyepiece:

                        I bought these plossls to use primarily in a binoviewer. I already had a 30mm Vixen plossl that I use primarily to start each session of observation. They are great EP's and I like the twist up cups. So when it came time to purchase a dual set for binoviewing the Vixen's were the ticket. They work well and are lightweight. Hard to beat this little EP for the money.
