Orion 18mm Epic ED2 vs. Smart Astronomy 19mm Extra Flat Field (EF)
By David Russell 5/31/2009
If you’re on a tight budget, but looking for something better than inexpensive plossls, the Orion Epic ED2 line and the Smart Astronomy EF line may fall into your price range. Eyepieces from both lines can be purchased for less than $100 and therefore won’t break the bank.

If you want the biggest true field of view your scope can deliver, at a low cost, read this first.

Televue Dioptrx and your Pentax XW40 and XW30
By Greg Nowell 11/25/2007
Low power, wide field views in the fabled Pentax XW40 and XW30 eyepieces are compromised by your own astigmatism. Fortunately the TV dioptrx is right at home on top of your 30 and 40mm Pentax XWs.

By Ed Moreno 11/5/2007
Angling for field of view….

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly: Televue Nagler 31mm Type 5, University Optics 32mm König Mk-80 and Meade 30mm QX Wide Angle Three Way Eyepiece Shootout.
By ANJAL SHARMA 4/26/2007
Will this be just another spaghetti western? Or will Sergio Leone direct another grand opus and make his “Dollars” trilogy a quadrilogy? Will Ennio Morricone once again rouse us with one of his inspiring musical themes for this three way shootout? Hang on to them hats boys, light those cee-gars and read on……

By Ed Moreno 4/12/2007

By david elosser 3/16/2007

By Robert Piekiel 2/16/2007
Orion's new 70-degree 2-inch eyepieces can give just about any brand a good run for their money!

I needed a finder for my 82mm F8.5 Achromat, I purchased a 32mm plossl instead.

Meade 20mm 5000 Series Plossl
By david elosser 4/23/2006
I have given the Meade 20mm 5K Plossl a "shootout" with three other eyepieces. Is this a "poor man's Panoptic?"

The Siebert 36mm, a most unusual eyepiece.
By Manuel Reyes 3/22/2006
The first impressions when I received my 36mm Observatory series eyepiece was... It looks different from what I'm used to but that is not necessarily bad... It feels lighter then I thought it would and that is actually good... The eye lens is Huge, this may also be good ... But I take it out of the boltcase and there is an metallic odor coming from the eyepiece... I hope it wears off... and it did.

Meade 5000 14mm UWA Impressions
By Peter Rasmussen 12/10/2005
Little to date has been written about this new model yet it seems to have garnered a hefty share of bad press. After a rocky daylight intro, it then proceeded, by night, to treat my eyes to some savory sweet surprises.

Review of Tele Vue Optics 19mm Panoptic and 10mm Radian eyepieces.
By Wing Eng 10/15/2005
"I decided to buy both the Tele Vue 19mm Panoptic($240) and 10mm Radian($240) 1.25” format eyepieces and try them out on my optically very excellent Celestron Starhopper 8 inch f/6 Dobsonian scope, of 1219.2 mm focal length, which was manufactured about 10 years ago."
