5 of 5 Pentax XW 10mm REVISED April 24, 2021
Reviewer: Tay Seidel from Vulcan, Unitied Federation of Planets  
The XW10 is a comfortable eyepiece to use. The image comes to you at the EP. For eyeglasses wearers such as myself, I prefer the eye cup to in the down most position. My wife prefers the eye cup to be up by about 2 turns.

Stars are pinpoint all the way to the edge. I've seen reports of lateral color in the XW line, but in my f/5.6 scope it was not noticeable- it may be if you specifically look for it which I didn't.

Good EP- among the easiest to use. It's a pinch easier to use than the ES92 series.

5 of 5 Pentax XW 10mm December 18, 2020
Reviewer: Tay Seidel from Vulcan, Unitied Federation of Planets  
Comfort reigns supreme with this EP. While I haven't put this one under the stars yet, I'm experienced enough to know whether an EP will work from a comfort factor, and this EP clearly has it.

Lots of eye relief for eyeglasses wearers like me. The image pulls you in. You do not have to put yourself into the image. It will pull you in.

Just when I thought I was out, it pulls me back in.

5 of 5 Sharp eyepiece, big field. June 11, 2019
Reviewer: Val Ricks from The Woodlands, TX United States  
I have used the 10mm in a couple of scopes: a 6" f/8 Newt and a large Classical Cass.  The eyepiece is sharp and comfortable in both, at magnifications of 120x and 391x.  Sometimes I forgot I was observing at 391x because the view was good.  The eyepiece is now part of the regular rotation.
