Description:This is a good quality fully-multicoated high power eyepiece at a good low price. It’s designed for high magnification lunar and planetary observing, for splitting binary stars, and for darkening the sky for observation of compact galaxies and planetary nebulas. The field of view is surprisingly wide when compared with other Plössls in this focal length range. A soft rubber eyecup on the titanium-colored body shields the eye from ambient light and folds down for more comfortable eyeglass use.

Eye relief is too short and eye lens too small to allow it to work for me. It is a fairly sharp EP at a cheap price, if money is tight. I gave mine away after I got my 6.4mm Star Splitter.

Planetary views are Bright,clear and sharp.Tight eye relief that is typical of a 6mm classic plossl design. Nicely machined eyepiece. Great value for an inexpensive eyepiece.

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.
