Before purchasing my Paracorr, I did not like the T4's in my f5 scope. And the Pan 22 & 27 gave me very nice views. I sold my Pan 24 in favor of the 22, due to the much longer eye-relief it provided, plus it works with a Dioptrx (the 24 does not).

After adding the Paracorr the game changed. I picked up a 22T4 and with the Dioptrx, I still have tons of eye relief and sharp stars across the field, Instadjust be damned! I hated the Instadjust so much that I figured out a way to lock the barrel completely, in the full-down position. Now this is my favorite low-power eyepiece.

In my 16" f/7 Newtonian, the 22 Panoptic edges out ahead - it just seems to have a bit - ever so slightly more - contrast to it.

Confirmed via the Sidewalk Test, see attached graphic.
