Extra Flat 27mm or Starguider ED 25mm?

Had a good view of the Moon with the aspheric on my 115mm/f6.95 frac and 2x Barlow :) Shame I don't have my phone adapter yet! Should come next week, hopefully.

They really shine in binoviewers for max field for those of us with wide nose bridges and deep eye sockets thanks to their diminutive size.  Since I generally use a 3x equivalent Barlow to reach focus, they are great across the field in my refractors and Dob.  Their light weight is also most welcomed in this usage to ease balance issues.

First, does your scope use 23mm or 30mm barrelled eyepieces?  This is what ultimately limits the true field of view of any eyepiece in a microscope.  You can't see what's beyond the barrel. Secon

It lists it at 16mm eye relief. Same usable eye relief as EF27mm. I have ES82 11mm which has 15.6mm eye relief by specification. I feel that 12mm Plossl is more comfortable to use altho

Never tried it, but I love my 14mm and 5.2mm XLs.  It's just that the 28mm XL is generally regarded as the best 1.25" eyepiece in that focal length range ever made.

Well, at least it wasn't a complete waste - I'll have to try it on some dso's, if I get the chance.

I've blown $15 on far more ill-advised purchases.  For example, I still have an Orion flexible red/white astro flashlight from the late 90s that quickly broke.  The switchable red filter in front of the bulb won't move into position rendering it useless at night.  I should have chucked it 20 years ago, but I had spent a decent chunk of change on it back then, so I couldn't bring myself to do it.

It's not the money, it's the principle!
