Antares Erfle (Modified) 30mm
Nice FOV. Feels and seems to bee of good quality. Some dust, but at outside of "inner lens", removed with pressurized air. Shows some coma on Orion XT10, but less than expected. I am satisfied with this eyepiece.

Nice eyepiece but not very good on my 12" f4 newton; about 50° of field is good then coma and astigmatism do a bad mix...but I have read that this problem afflict some 30mm good eyepieces like Unitron Widescan, Vixen LVW ecc

I just got this new "30mm Modified Erfle" from Antares. Performs well even on a fast F:4.4 Newtonian telescope, because of the added lens - it's truely a "modified" Erfle.

The FOV is 74° (after turning the field stop upside down ~76°). Exact focal length is 29,5 mm. The price is somewhat higher in comparison to the other Antares Erfles. But you get more benefit, so it's o.k.
Nice finishing, resembles a little bit to Al Naglers eyepieces.
