Description:This is a good quality medium power fully-multicoated eyepiece at a very economical price for the astronomer on a budget. It’s designed for lunar observing, for filling the eyepiece field with emission and reflection nebulas, for observing compact open clusters, and for sweeping nebular remnants. It will work well with any telescope type, at any focal ratio, under any seeing conditions. A soft rubber eyecup shields the eye from ambient light and folds down for more comfortable eyeglass use. A knurled rubber ring on the titanium-colored barrel provides a secure grip when changing eyepieces in cold weather.

Celestron Omni 15mm
The 32mm and 25mm are the best of the Plossl line. Bright images, decent field of view, and good eye relief. When you drop below 25mm, the eye relief starts to get a little short. Below 10mm the eye relief is negligable - to the point where I won't use them even if I won them.
