Hi David,

Very nice write up, thank you for submitting it! A question - do you feel the eye relief on the Vixen is suitable for eyeglass wearers?

Thanks

Tom T.

Thanks Tom. This eyepiece is quite comfortable to use with glasses with the eyepiece's eye cup retracted.

Nice Review David!

I found it quite interesting. You definately addressed the various aspects I think most readers would want to understand.

Have not seen many reviews of these eyepieces (NLV specific), especially considering how long they have been around.

Does anyone know if any/which ones are parfocal?

Thanks,

Mark

Good to see the Vixen stands against others designs.

David, did you choose the 5mm for a special reason?
