>I sold my 10mm Radian for this eyepiece and it is an improvement. It is easier to keep my eye positioned correctly, and there is no ghosting that was present in my 10mm Radian. The construction of this eyepiece is excellent with nice touches like a beveled barrel and I like the screw type eyecup adjustment much better than the Instadjust, whatever it is, that Tele Vue has gone to. The edge sharpness is better than the Radian as well and I cannot tell a difference in contrast however from the Radian. Lateral color is the same as the Radian, which was practically non-existent. Maybe I had a bad Radian, but I like Pentax XL 10.5mm much better.
These and the Pentax XW's ,( the 40mm, 10mm, 7mm, and 5mm), are the FINEST EYEPIECES on the entire planet bar none. Al Nagler doesn't hold a flame hot enough to come close to these sharp eyepieces....stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
