In a fast Newtonian, the excessive coma will disappoint. If you have a Paracorr, you probably are buying more expensive eyepieces!
But in a f10 scope, this eyepiece really hits its stride. Stars are well-focused with just a hint of field curvature at the extreme edge. This eyepiece is light and an good value if you own a long refractor or SCT. It is just the thing for outreach and public nights.
Favorite viewing location: Stellafane
Favorite object to observe: Milky Way Starfields
Pros: inexpensive, light, works well at long focal lengths
Cons: not for short focal lengths, coma

This is a great addition to my 2" lens set and to my veiwing pleasure. It has a very nice field of view and very very clear. Star clusters sparkle like diamonds and nebulas like the Orion M42 looked awesome adjacent to the surrounding stars which you can only see up close and personal with this eyepiece due to its expanse view. I recommend this eyepiece whole heartedly!!! Great value for the price too!

Everything is great except the strong field curvature. The center and edge og the FOV will not reach focus at the same time. At an intermediate focus position I can make the whole FOV look sharp if I really strain my eyes. Some people will find this uncomfortable. Others (with young, flexible eyes) wont even notice. I think most people on a budget are better off with a 32mm plossl. Better views, and much more compact.

spoiled

Great eyepiece. Only thing I have to say is Orion doesn't offer enough of them ....not like the 1.25 which they have plenty of. (They are) great but I'm spoiled now with the wider view of the 2 inch ....I'm new into astronomy and bought my first scope--the xt 10--and cant say enough great things about it... also just orderd the q 70 26mm eyepiece hope this one is just as nice.
