Description:I have used Q70 26mm on XT10i dobsonian. It gave quite decent, bright, clear images of Veil N in the central part but the pincushion effect was quite disturbing. I wonder if the Paracorr could solve the problem.

26mm Orion Q70 Wide-Field Eyepiece

This one is a keeper. EXCELLENT eyepiece. I use a 25" Obsession and had a 31mm Tele Vue Nagler in. We look at objects, try other eyepieces, then move on to the next object. When I swapped out the 31mm and replaced it with the 26mm Q70, EVERYONE there loved the view, most thought it was a better image than the $600 31mm. The important point is, no one knew what I just put in, they were only reacting to what they saw and not the "name on the label".

Sharp images right to the edge
Works great in the 25" 3175 mm focal length Obsession or the 10" F/5 Dob.

Saturn, M4, Ring Nebula - Beautiful.

Orion makes a very good eyepiece, I have their Stratus 8mm and 13mm and they are also excellent. You will not be disappointed.

Amazing quality 2" 26mm super-wide angle eyepiece at an unbeatable price. Super-wide 70 degree apparent field of view gives you that unforgettable "lost in space" feeling. Five multi-coated lens elements made of high index glass deliver sharp, high contrast vistas. Luxurious eye relief and parfocal design provide comfort and convenience. Beautifully made with machined housings, fold-down rubber eyeguards, and chrome plated barrels
