      Comments about Vixen Plossl NPL Telescope Eyepiece:

      These are good quality eyepieces. I have the 8mm and 10mm versions. The view is clear and sharp. I took away 1 star because the field of view is 50 degrees, compared to 52 degrees with other Plossl eyepieces. Also, the eye relief seems slightly shorter. Other than that, they work great.

        I read a lot of Vixen reviews, and so far they haven't disappointed. I've enjoyed this eyepiece so much, I'm going to buy the rest of the set.

            Bought the 40mm eyepiece...It was finely constructed and works quite well in my Zhumell Z12 Dobsonian telescope. The twist out eyecup feature is a plus. Overall, for the price, you probably won't find a better one!

                  I originally bought one of the 15mm's to start upgrading the cheap eyepieces that came with my Bushnell 114mm. The first views of Saturn were great! I could pick out 4 of its moons and could see separation between the rings and the planet. For the price it's a good option to find out which magnifications work with your scope. I have since upgraded my scope but still use this lens. I have seen several clusters and nebulae with this lens.
