Rini Modified Plossl 26mm 2"
I use this eyepiece in an 8 inch f10 SCT. The 26mm 2 inch is a very good combination of power and field of view with my scope. It is very sharp in my scope and gives me great views of M15,M56, M11, and many other clusters and galaxies. It is threaded for filters, is lightweight, and has a very black background. Great contrast.

It is not recommended for short focus reflectors, but does perform very well in my scope. Even on the edge, it does well on my f10 scope. It is not as sharp as at the center, but there are no badly distorted stars or astigmatic lines. I would estimate the field of view at around 72 degrees. At $39, you can't go wrong.
