Review

These 5 element EPs from Orion are very good.  The 25mm at $89.00 is a fine addition to any one's collection.  52 degree field of view.  I use this EP mostly for deep sky objects.  It has a very bright view of galaxy's and globular clusters.  It show fine detail.  A big improvement over Plossl.  Using this EP in a 14 inch f/4.5 dob stars are sharp to the edge.  No coma noticed.  I have yet to use a better 25mm EP than the Ultrascopic.  This ep also Barlows well when used with a Ultima short Barlow.  With a Lumicon OIII filter it is great for hunting down planetary nebulas.  On a scale of 1 -10 I give it a 9 because I have not tried every EP out their so I leave room for that.  I highly recommend these EPs.
