Just received my ES 14mm today and I couldn't resist the urge to test it out straight away. It was quite late and I didn't really have time to set up my scope before calling it an evening. I broke out my daughters 76mm reflector for a quick taste.

Conditions weren't absolutely ideal- with a little dust in the air. But targeting M103, the Pleiades, and Andromeda high in the mid night sky revealed pleasant results. Andromeda's disk nearly filled the giant (as advertised) field of view. M103 was small in this small scope but more defined than it was with either of my generic 10mm and 20mm pieces. The Pleiades looked gorgeous with this wide field piece at this magnification.

Overall, for the money spent- this was exactly what I was looking for. Immersive is only a word. But to thoroughly understand its meaning- you just need to try out this quality eyepiece.

I was dissapointed in its performance in my 102ed f9 refractor. The outer 7% or so of the image circle shows up very amber-orange. I had hoped maybe it was a problem with my diagonal, so I ran it threw straight without, it still showed the ring of color. Used for nature views across our lake covered with snow, every view has a frame of amber color. I do have other ES 82 degree eye pieces and none of them have this problem.

        Comments about Explore Scientific 82 Degree Series Gas Purged Waterproof Telescope Eyepieces:

        I just purchased the 24mm which gives me 50X in my scope and a true field of 1.6 degrees. I couldn't be more pleased. It is now my favorite eyepiece. The wide field piece that came with the scope wasn't bad, but I truly didn't know what I was missing. I was sold when on my first good night of seeing, I put Andromeda, M32 and M110 all in one field. The contrast in the eyepiece is outstanding with my 8" Dob. There is a reason this eyepiece is rated as high as it is. I highly recommend it.

          This is a great low mag EP for double clusters, open clusters, giant nebulae and perfect for the Andromeda galaxy. Crystal clear images all the way to the edge of the FOV. Its like looking out of a window into space. The views are simply outtstanding. Absolutley love this EP. It is very heavy and my 10 inch Dobsonian can barely handle it. If I were to barlow it i would need a counterweight.
