Not helpful I know, but they are both good plossls and there is little in them. They will certainly out-perform your standard supplied ep's by a mile.

Probably doesn't help you massively either, but I have literally just taken delivery of a 12mm Celestron Omni. I don't think it's going to be clear enough for me to try it out tonight, so I can't say anything about the optics, but in your hand against the stock EP you can really feel the difference in quality.

I'm probably going to go for a 32mm Celestron Omni next, but that will have to wait for next month payday.

Skywatcher 130M and Travelscope70 (for holidays!).

Waiting for the clear skies to come back!

I have the skywatcher 32 sp but is yet to see light and looking at the weather it's gonna be a week before it does! Seemed good value if the views are ok. I can post more once the clouds clear if that helps.

I have the celestron omni and it gives very crisp views and is good for locating objects as most lower power EPs. I'm not sure what the SW one is like though.
