Quote:I have both the 13 mm and 17 Celestron Ultima LX. The 17 is great, one of my best eyepieces. However, the 13 has an annoying field darkening near the center of field surrounded by a lighter field of view near the edges. I like my fields to be more uniform in appearance. I also have the 32 mm which is used as my finder eyepiece for my LightBridge. The edge of field performance I tried to improve with an Baader MPCC coma corrector and visual ring set. But so far just minimal improvement.- Stephen
