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.

Ok, the eye relief isn't fantastic, but it is quite acceptable. I wouldn't want to use ANY plossl with a FL of less than 8mm or so. THEN the eye relief really becomes impossible. If you want a good short FL EP get a Lanthanum or use a barlow! But the 10mm Sirius is an excellent mid/high power EP especially considering the price (which has dropped to around $40). Clear, sharp, bright, and eye relief is acceptable.

Your move!

Better than cheap Kellners like Meade Modified Achromatics, but would have rather spent the money on a decent orthoscopic.

I have the older version of the 10mm, the one with the red rubber grip. I use it all the time, especially for planetary viewing. It is a good combo with my 2.8 x Klee. It is sharp and the light throughput is good. I have no problems with the eye relief. It is adequate (non-glasses).

The Orion Sirius 10mm Plossl is sharp and bright, but eye relief is where it falls down. I invariably end up reaching for something more comfortable and the 10mm Plossl doesn't end up seeing much action. However, if you are on a budget and need planetary performance, the 10mm will do the job.

I received the Sirius 10 with my XT6 purchase, but I don't use it with my XT6 because I have Naglers and Panoptics. However, due to it's light weight and small size, I was hoping to use it with my Short Tube 90, but no dice son; the dang thing won't even fit into the diagonal because it's a hair too wide.
