Pentax Orthoscopic 20mm
A rather tiny lightweight eyepiece.
Very sharp and contrasty. Narrow FOW, but not so bad as many other orthos. OK eye relief around 15-20mm
No glare or gosthing despite only a single bluish lens coating. Ideal for planets, sun and moon. Was delivered together with Pentax telescopes in the early 80's.
If you ever get across one for any price under $75 buy it. It will give any orthos around a fair fight.
