Excellent eyepiece

By Albert Bellg on October, 16th 2009

Has excellent on-axis and edge sharpness even with low f-ratio scopes, with superb contrast. Comfortable eye relief (10mm) for this focal length. A great planetary eyepiece, and fine for smaller clusters and nebulae.

Tak LE-5 ED

By John Boyd on October, 16th 2009

This is my favorite high mag eyepiece. Sharp across the field, bright, and with very high contrast. Excellent performance in both of my Tak refractors and my 10in f6 Dob. Only edged out a slight bit by some of the high end orthos, but the LE-5 has much better eye relief and wider field.

Great contrast and sharpness

By Jeffrey Hapeman on October, 16th 2009

The title says it all. Very sharp views and extremely confortable eye relief. This is my favorite planetary eyepiece. The FOV is a bit small for a Dobsonian, but if your scope is on a tracking mount, this is the planetary/globular eyepiece to own.

A great high powered Plossl

By James A. Edwards on October, 16th 2009

I had purchased the UWA Meades to capture Mars in its transition but found 2 Tak Les which made viewing the Red Planet better...Not saying the Meade UWAs arent very good planetary pieces, I just like the LE 5mm better...Good eye relief and the optical quality as with any Tak item is truly hard to beat...I highly recommend the 5mm LE for those wanting a great high powered plossl! Easy 10 stars!
