The 18mm does have a reputation for tighter eye relief then the others. ES lists it at 13mm eye relief. It's really at that spot that most can still view with glasses, but for a small few, it's just quite not enough eye relief. If you can view without glasses, that 18mm really throws out some good views, nice sharp pinpoint stars across the field, no coloring or abberations at the edge while viewing the moon. If you can tolerate the eye relief (and it's really not all that bad, compared to an ortho) this is one fantastic 2" eyepiece.

I wear eyeglasses, but remove them when observing. I just tried, but I can't see the whole field of the ES82 18mm while wearing eyeglasses.

Clear skies!
