Quote:I think the 38mm Q70 (or a clone) is a great eyepiece! The Agena 38mm SWA is identical to the Q70.The 38mm will give you a true field of view around 2.19 deg and the 32mm will give you 1.84 deg. When looking at something like the Pleades, this is a huge difference. I really like having at least one EP that really pushes the envelope for exit pupil size just for that big wide view.You would have to spend vastly more money for a better or bigger view than the 38mm Q70 will give you. I don't find the edge of the view objectionable at all in my f/5 Z10. I can just soak it all in for a long time.
