TeleVue Radian 18mm
I bought 2 18mm radians for my bino to try.The views are reall impressive with large fov.The ep's are very sharp and have good contrast.They are a littel heavy,Plus the instantjust can be a pain in a bino sometimes but the views are worth it.I will be comparing these to the 19pans next,I just tried a pair of 19mm axioms allready which were good for the money,The radians are shaper with better light transmission.The radian in mono is excellent also.The radians are really nice ep's.Allmost orthos shapness plus large fov and great eye releif what else can a person ask for.THANKS BOB HART

Liked it better than my 19mm Panoptic. Sold the Panoptic, kept the Radian. Has all of the virtues of the Radian series. Just as sharp and contrasty as the 18mm Ultima which is my reference standard in this focal length. Highly recommended.

Excellent eyepiece. Literally blew away the 18mm Tak Ortho in 3 different scopes that it was tested in. The TV was brighter, sharper, had better eye relief and a larger apparant field than the Tak Ortho. To be honest, I was shocked at these results. The only drawback to the eyepiece is a tiny bit of lateral color around the edges. Highly recommended!

I wasn't happy at all with the Instathing. I believe there are other ep's out there that are a bit better.

Images are extremely sharp and bright. I use it witha a 2X Barlow and the views of planets and Moon are impressive. Instadjust is excellent and the eye relief is a godsend for eyeglass wearers like me. FOV OK but not outstanding.
Highly recommended.

Outstanding performance. Best focus, clarity, and light transmission out of all my EP's, which includes SuperPlossls, Ultrascopics, Axioms, and Sirius EP's.

The adjustable eye cup is great. All EP's should use 'em.

My favorite EP.

Amazing eyepiece! Clear to the edge in my XT8....very bright and contrasty views. The 20mm eye relief is great, and the 60 degree FOV is fine for deep-sky work. The 18mm is worth every penny.

Flawless performance, sharp to the edge no kidney beaning. I love the Radian series. They have an eye centering ring that you can put in and I use it at public star parties. The adjustable sleeve makes it easy to adjust for people with glasses! Also the eye centering ring protects the eyepiece from finger prints etc, when the kids comew to look. Wish the would make some with 20, 25, 30 mm range. I would definetly buy them.

I find it gives me a nice balance of fov, eye relief, and sharpness. It has become my most "go to" eyepiece.
