I am thinking of getting a Vixen LVW, not sure what focal length yet.

I really love the 30 XW. Great sharpness, through-put and contrast. Slight field curvature with my F5 scope, but a lot better than other EP’s I have looked through. Gives me close to 1.7 degrees of sky. Felt like quality right from the day I picked it up. Was going to wait for the BO/TMB 30mm but got the XW instead.

The Hyperions are really good for the money. Very comfortable to use, excellent eye relief. It has a thread under the rubber eye cup so a T-ring and SLR can be attached for eyepiece projection photography. The XW also has this feature.

The Burgess/TMB Planetary’s are great. Love the screw up eye cups, same as the XW. The 7mm also doubles as a deep sky EP on certain objects. Don’t get to use the 3.2mm much as the atmosphere can rarely support it.

The Plossl’s came with the scope.
