Hi, I saw some folks here love this EPs on Chinese binoviewers.
Don't they vignette on stock Orion/WO BVs?
I have an Orion BV (not supercharged by SO) and 6" Mak.
Thanks.
Andy

Hi Andy,
Being one who uses these eyepieces they do vignette a little...not much. I use them on my stock WO bins and they give a one and a bit degree FOV.

The 25mm NPL are just about on the edge of the 22mm field-stop. That is the pair I use, great eyepiece for binoviewing.

If you don't mind a little vignetting 30mm is the way to go though.

Either way tough to go wrong with the NPL series, I have be really impressed by them.
