ES 11 82 vs. Nagler T6 11 vs Pentax XW 10
      #5739426 - 03/17/13 07:01 PM

I'm now looking at an eyepiece in this range for my Skywatcher Pro 120. Has anyone compared these three eyepieces. The ES seems to be back ordered for quite a while. I have funds to pick up used versions of the Nagler and XW, but will wait for a new ES if it is close in comparison. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I've compared an XW 10 to a Nagler T6 9mm and found the XW 10 just a bit better with regards to light scatter control, light trasmission and neutral colour tone. Both great eyepieces but comparing the two opened my eyes to the XW range and I've now moved from T6 Naglers to XW's for high power.
