This eyepiece has significantly improved my views, especially of solar system objects. Last night, I was able to resolve Ganymede as it transited Jupiter's face - not the moon's shadow, but the actual moon. Sure, it appeared as no more than a black dot on Jove's face, but it was unmistakable. This is something I could not see with my 25mm. I was also able - for the first time - to resolve the E & F stars in the Trapezium of M42 last night. Again, something I'm unable to see with my 25mm.

Overall, I am quite pleased with this eyepiece, especially considering its sub-$30 price. (Posted on 1/19/2015)
