A new standard for binoviewing

All I can say is Oh WOW! This is truly an amazing eyepiece in a binoviewer. Expansive field of view that, in a binoviewer, nearly replicates that of a lone Nagler. Perfect eye relief and excellent contrast. I would actually give this a 9.5 if that were an option (9 would be too low), as there is some pincushion effect, most noticable when sweeping the sky. This is destined to become *the* binoviwing eyepiece to have for low power binoviewing on deep sky objects.
