Thanks for the review! I have been thinking of picking up a few of these for my dob... My scope shop didn't have any in, but they did have the older version, the X-Cel.(I did get the X-Cell 12mm, and like it.) I wonder how the X-Cel and the HD-60's compare, view quality wise? (both long eye-relief, both 60 deg AFOV, same price point)

Thanks,
Jerry

Unfortunately it isn't.

The 12mm is an HD-60, but the 26mm that he's looked at is a
26mm Plossl - as clearly labelled on the box.

There is no such thing as a 26mm HD-60
