If it is greater than 50 degrees then I do not see the need to get a 32mm Plossl

Smart Astronomy Sterling plossls are available in 2" 30mm and 40mm versions. I particularly like the 30mm, but the fastest scope I have used it in is f/6.7, so not sure how well it would perform at f/5, but, . . . it's a plossl, so it probably wouldn't be too bad. For my money, the Agena 32mm SWA would be a better choice. Anything much better will be a lot more expensive.
. . But good luck finding a 2" plossl 26-32mm.. .

There is a good reason these are free with scopes. They are complete rubbish....The 'T' stands for trash....Long Eyerelief Trash, or LET.
Better to get a decent plossl and use this as a paperweight.
Have to disagree here. While they have their limitations, with the 102 f10, it works fine. Wouldn't mind trying out the short fls....mechanically, they're well built (except for that Televue style undercut) and others would do well to use that twist up eyecup idea. These aren't the NLV type twist cap, but are finely threaded like an XW.

They are excellent for solar observing because of their simple design.

This eyepiece came with my scope as well. It doesn't get much use at night, but I use it all the time for solar viewing. It seems to be excellent for that activity. I've never tried it in my f4.7 dob.
