Orion Lanthanum Superwide 5
I recently purchased this now discontinued ep from Island Eyepiece up in Canada. With the purchase of the 5mm I now have the complete set of the Superwides that I wanted. I have the 22,17, 8 + 5mm . The 5mm has the same level of good quality as the others in this series. Great contrast,decent eye relief and sharp right to the edge in my fast f/ratio refractors. Great view of Saturn on it's first light outing at 120 power in my ED 80 refractor. Cassini's Division and banding clearly evident with a wide surrounding field of stars that went sharp right to the field stop. A good investment.

Best Regards Stan Taylor
