Antares Plossl 5mm
Most used high power eyepiece.Great for tight doubles and planetary detail.Sharp field with good contrast with an exceptable amount of eye relief.A little longer than some of the other eps in this line but nice and light.Barlows very well especially with the Antares 2X model barlow.

Antares Plossl 5mm
Trully magnificent planetary eyepiece. Great contrast, perfect sharpness across the whole field of view. A little bit dim, and i mean "a little bit" nothing more. Magnificent field correction down to f:4.8.

Eye relief is comfortable for those of us who donĀ“t wear glasses. If you do, its too short, you may be better serviced with a Vixen LV or, even better, a Radian or Takahashi LE.

The field of view apears to be more towards 48 degree than 52.

For the price, one of the best 5 mm eyepieces out there. Much better than Celestron Ultima 5 mm, which is no better optically and has sub-zero eye relief.

Not a Radian, but great anyway.
