Celestron E-LUX 25mm
I know that most of us have either used or own a more expensive eyepiece. This eyepiece is still a joy to use. I have used it in a 8 inch sct and and find the stars focus to tight points of light. A Tele Vue plossl or a Celestron Ultima will focus to slightly sharper. For this eyepiece, stars are in focus for 90% of the field of view getting soft right next to the edge. I don't find this to be a problem for most viewing. Because of the multi-coatings and having only 4 elements, this eyepiece holds its own when looking for faint deep sky objects. It is nicely constructed. It looks and feels like a well made eyepiece. I like the fold down eyecup which folds almost flat against the top of the eyepiece. This prevents my glasses from being scratched. I can just see the entire field of view when my glasses just touch the eyecup.

I know that many will reject a low priced eyepiece such as this. I have found mine to be a joy to use.
