These Sky-Watcher Planetary eyepieces feature five fully multi-coated lens elements and a wide 58 degree field of view.
Designed for high magnification observing they offer low distortion and high contrast.
Fold down/screw-off rubber eyecups and a generous 16mm eye relief, making them suitable for spectacle wearers.
The outer body features a tactile rubber grip and the eyepiece barrel is threaded for standard 1.25” filters.

I've recently been using this EP in my 12 inch Dob and I have to say it has absolutely blown my socks off, stunning performance for such a low price.
Viewing Saturn, the Cassini Division was sharply defined, even the Encke Minima was evident as was the C ring. Distinct banding on the planets surface and a pale blue polar region. Even the very faint moon Enceladus was visible, quite amazing.
Reasonable performance for the price

I must carry my telescope a short distance into the fields to get away from the street lighting and traffic. This limits the aperture of my Newtonian telescope to 200mm and use a slightly undersized motorised mount to limit the weight. I decided to get a set of lightweight lenses to complement this setup without further compromising of the quality. On my fixed station I use a set of APM - Lunt XWA 110° x-treme Wide Angle Eyepiece which are excellent but very heavy. So I opted for these lenses. Quite frankly there is no comparison between these lenses mostly due to the restricted FOV. However, these small lenses have a decent eye relief and I can enjoy the view even with my glasses on. The image is crisp sharp all the way to the edge of the FOV and I can get a decent image even without the coma corrector in place which reduces the weight even further. The colour and contrast of the image generated is almost similar to that achieved through the Lunt, but I use the Lunt is an area with higher light pollution so I guess that this is an unfair comparison.

Excellent planetary eyepiece and of course excellent service from FLO

I bought this eyepiece to test it with my Mak 180mm, so although it is too much magnification for the scope with this eyepiece but it showed that it will be very nice within the allowed practical magnification with another scope, so it will be a keeper, and for its price it is no brainier.
