This eyepiece is a 10 on the value scale.
Its a 7 on the performance scale.

For little $$ this 2 inch format eyepiece is great for widefield views on my F5 - 12.5 and my F4.7 - 16. I was very surprised at the ~ 75% field sharpness,,, then the edge shows arcs or the ussual effects of my fast scopes. The performance rivals that of meades SW models. I have seen much better EPs do the same on the edges.

As expected, a barlow really sharpens the edge performance at a < FL and > FR.
I have no reservations about using this EP.

As for Coatings?
Its shows very well on dim objects.

Its a keeper.
