SMAs are very good, economical, general purpose eyepieces that deliver a wide apparent field, good color correction and an excellent image at the center of the field of view. The eyepieces are fully coated for maximum contrast. Celestron offers a range of SMA eyepieces in 1-1/4" sizes.

Celestron SMA 12mm
I used this eyepiece with a 4.5" f/8 Meade reflector. It was far superior to the .965" eps that came with the scope, and in fact was as good as any less expensive Plossl that I tried. It Barlowed well, giving me excellent views of the Orion nebula and other DSOs. It is a good choice for anyone on a tight budget who needs to improve over the cheap eps that come with less expensive scopes.
