That 27mm Panoptic is an incredible eyepiece. Dont give it up for wider field designs in the future. It's light weight makes it a keeper for smaller scopes. Great in larger scopes too.

Hmm, for what it's worth, my 27-mm Panoptic is the very heaviest eyepiece that I own; I would hate to own anything much heavier. But I agree that it's a keeper -- it really hits a sweet spot for me. Ideal wide-field magnification in my f/5 and f/5.4 scopes, beautiful image, near-perfect eye relief (for me). What's not to like?

I had a 35mm Pan and 31 nagler. While both eyepieces certainly has its place with certain scopes and certain targets, the 27 pan was better all around for various scopes and focusers and targets.

As always, my opinion is based on personal experiences and I'm sure others will disagree.
