Meade Super Wide Angle 18mm
I'm using this eyepiece on a 4" f5.4 TeleVue Genesis SDF. The central section is pretty sharp and contrasty. A large portion of the egde suffers in my scope. As far as sharpness and contrast go on-axis I would rate performance as comparable to a good quality Plossl.

Used in a 8" F6 this eyepiece showed good contrast and good on axis sharpness. Eyerelief is very short. I found that my eyelashes hit the lens when viewing. Image does degrade in the outer 1/3rd to 1/4th of the view. For the money it's OK. Look at others before you buy

A great eyepiece with my 8" SCT at f/10. Works very well with the Celestron BinoViewer and with a TeleVue 2.5x PowerMate.

This eyepiece has quickly become one of my favorites. It gives bright, sharp images in 90% of the field of view. At the edges there's a noticeable image deterioration when used in my 8 inch f/4 Newtonian. In comparison with the often larger and more expensive wide field eyepieces, this Meade SWA 18mm is strongly recommended.

Excellent EP. Modest price and very good optics with wide view are hard to beat.

One of my favorites. Gives the best combination of magnification, field, and contrast in my C8. Edge sharpness, like the 24.5mm, a lacking but I'll put money on it that my scope causes most of the astigmatism. Eye relief is not enough for glasses but still wuite good. Compared to the 19mm Panoptic, probably not as good, but VERY close. For almost 100 bucks cheaper though, a definite recommendation.

Wonderful views but short on eye relief for eyeglass wearers. If you don't wear glasses I would recommend this eyepiece as a good value.
