I also have the 5mm XWA and the 20mm XWA and their performance was equally pleasing. Whats really different with this eyepiece set is the FOV, you can literally turn your head to the side and see vistas that were not apparent when looking directly through the eyepiece.
David, thanks for your interesting remarks. To put things into a better context, kindly tell us a little about the telescope that was used for your observations?
