TAL Ultra Wide Angle 24mm
Contrasty, sharp on axis . . . softening towards field stop, but not an annoyance for the price . . . $143 on Astromart.
Overall construction a notch down from the BW-Optik.
Huge FOV in my LX90 and becoming my favorite ep!

TAL Ultra Wide Angle 24mm
This eyepiece is a bargain for a 24mm Nagler type UWA. It works great in all three (120mm f5 , 150mm f8 refractor,XT10) of my scopes. This is the first eyepiece I use when I pull out my XT10 (10in f5 DOB) and it does not have any blackouts (kidney-beaning) like many UWA eyepieces in this FL range.
It works very well in the daylight with my scopes and makes a great low light spotting scope with the Orion 120ST OTA on a Bogen 3040 tripod.
