5 of 5 BINGO! April 23, 2020
Reviewer: Rodney Post from Concord, CA United States  
Over the years I’ve been refining my eyepiece collection and this XW is the fourth try for my longest (around 40mm) glass. My ancient military 38mm Erfle was replaced with a Baader 36 aspheric, a debatable upgrade. Next try was a Vixen 42LVW, a real improvement over the Baader but still a bit lacking. This Pentax hits all the right spots for me, beating out the LVW in off-axis astigmatism AND controlling AMD as well RD...How do they do that with 6 elements? I can’t speak of TeleVue’s Pan 41 as it exceeded my size/weight limit. This eyepiece is absolutely the most comfortable I’ve ever used in my scopes which range from F 5.4 to F 7. My search for the long glass is over!
