Takahashi LE-ED 7.5mm
I'd actually rate this eyepiece as a 9.5. This is one of the finest eyepieces I've ever used, especially for planetary & lunar use, and I'm mostly a deep-sky observer who uses almost exclusively Naglers. (However I'm moving away from those for lunar & planetary)

I do not find any lateral color, and it is pinpoint sharp to the edge of the 50* AFOV. I'm hard pressed to find a sharper eyepiece, and the throughput seems to be tremendous, as it is brighter than any eyepiece I've ever used at this focal length. I find it to be brighter & sharper than the 7mm UO Ortho. (Sorry I can't compare to the Pentax or Zeiss - I've never used those).

It's very small & leightweight, but packs a powerful punch in the focuser, and I'm thinking about buying a second one for use in a binoviewer. I can't think of anything better in the 7mm range, so unless you must have a wide-field, don't pass this up.

This is an outstanding eyepiece which is ideal for planetary and lunar observing. It exhibits good color and sharp images. I especially like its eye relief, making it a comfortable EP to use. Well-made with great optics...I think it's a great buy!

A splendid eyepiece - very sharp right across the field. Nice-n-contrasty. I used to use a 7mm Nagler, but now I find myself reaching for the LE (I'm using an FS128).

What an eyepiece. Simply the best views of Jupiter and Saturn through my 120mm refractor I've had yet. Constrast is excellent. View is sharp right to the edge. Also great with my 2x barlow for resolving globulars.

I real nice eyepiece, sharp and contrasty. Stars are pinpoints to the edge. The 10mm eye relief is just about perfect for me (I don't wear glasses). I wish my Nagler and XL's were made this well.

Just as great an eyepiece as its brother, the 5mm Tak LE. You just can't go wrong with it; worth every penny.
