Good evening to everyone! New astronomer here. Has anyone heard or seen reports on these new eyepieces from Zhumell. They have 100 degree field of view in 2" 9mm & 16mm. If I'm not mistaken they look just like TMB EP's? Or maybe you know about TMB's also. Thanks for your help! :question:

Reports have not been very encouraging, like Z16 100º vs 17 Ethos - a quick comparison. Zhumell & TMB 100's are, if I'm not mistaken, the same eyepiece, just re-branded.

Best,

Thanks for the report, I won't waste my time any further. Looks like a shim sham in disguise. :shocked:
