It takes a little getting use to moving your eye around in the 1.25 diameter eye lens. My first target was the moon great detail then the Orion nebula it look better than I have ever seen it in my ETX125. then off to Saturn and it blue me away. I have a ScopeTronix Maxview 14 with the Max power lens so I took off the Max power lens and put it on the Stratus and it took it from 17mm to 8.5mm. The Stratus cost $119.00 and has a 68 degree FOV a 20mm Eye Relief and are Fully Multi-coated. They come in 3.5, 5, 8, 13, 17, and 21mm. I am enclosing a pic of the Stratus with my 26SP. A great bang for your Buck. Allen Sellick
