SkyWatcher 9mm 1.25” Long Eye Relief Eyepiece
Retail Price $139
- I like it so much I may just buy the 7mm version as well.

- Use and looks etc
However the eyepiece is well made and is clear to look through- Is hard to use with a Barlow lens as a kidney bean effect is present. But if one keeps their eye close to the center of view it's not noticeable- I don't recommend for people who wear eyeglasses when using Barlow.
Great for looking at the moon and planets including splitting double stars.
If you have eyepieces such as the Plossl, Huygens, Ramsden, Kellner or "Achromat", Orthoscopic or "Abbe", RKE and Monocentric, this eyepiece will not disappoint. There will be improved "seeing" and increased field of view.
BUT if you own Erfle, König or Nagler the seeing is good but the field of view you are use too will be smaller making this eyepiece disappointing. (Posted on 6/10/2017)
