Purchased two for my Orion binoviewer/110ED and works great! I know that Baader zoom is the king in this price range but I was concerned with its heavy weight and size, my narrow IPD, so I gave it a try on Vixen NLV clickstop zoom. Very compact, light-weight which is easy on my focuser and no balance issue for my mount. Fit and finish is great. Winged eyeguard can be used when taking off the rubber eyecup. Winged eyeguard is perfect because the top of the eyepiece do not rotate when zooming. (I heard that is not the case with Baader) Yes, narrow FOV but this is used mainly for double stars, compact DSOs and moon/planets so no problem for me. Clickstop movement is very smooth and easy to turn, and clickstop is very convenient for binoviewing. Very sharp to the edge and provide nice contrasty views. If you don't mind heavy bulky eyepiece, maybe better to go with Baader, but Vixen Zoom is perfect for those who are concerned with the size and weight of the Baader. I see no optical compromise on Vixen zoom when compared to my Sterling Plossl pair which I love. Only negatives would be the narrow FOV but again, that is not an issue for me and I am very pleased with this eyepiece. (Posted on 2/11/2015)
