It represents excellent value and works well at 15mm and also when combined with your 2x Barlow will give you 7.5mm and 160x which is better for planets than the 133x from the 9mm alone. The apparent field of the 15 Superview is a nice 68 degrees. If you get one try it on Omega Centauri in your 'scope without the Barlow first then with.

The 15mm Plossl and 2x Parlow should work well to with 50 deg field.
Thank you Astro, I've read good things about the 15mm Superview. I'm kicking myself that I didn't get Bintel to send one over when I got the Barlow and extender. On the basis that it would be wasteful to pay postage on just the Superview I now feel I must get something else.

Hey, they sell Televues, don't they?

I think I'm getting the hang of this astronomy thingamajig.
