Quote:....The downside was that the eye relief is overly long, and I had a bit of trouble staying aligned to the exit pupil. It seemed harder to hold still vs the 41mm Pan.
Quote:Of course only people using large prism units will get the full benefit of this because smaller units will likely vignette with 40s, but for someone using something like 19mm Pans in their refractor as their low power eyepiece, you could get a partial benefit by keeping some 25mm Plossls for times when you just need a bit brighter view.

Quote:You don't get nearly the same exit pupil with the 24mms. Nebula look much brighther in the 40s.
