I bought a pair of these fine eyepieces for use in Vixen BT-125 binoculars. I really enjoy wide angle viewing and sweeping of star fields with these big binoculars. And the 24mm Panoptics really deliver. Sharp stars nearly to the edge of the 68-degree AFOV. That's no small feat in a fast f/5.5 optical system. Very high contrast views also. Not all eyepieces will come to focus in the Vixen BT-125 binocs, but the Panoptics do. There are a few trade-offs with the 24mm Panoptics. Eye relief is pretty tight. Eyeglass wearers might not be able to see all the way to the field stop when observing with their glasses on. When panning across star fields, there is some barrel distortion. This effect is only noticeable when panning - one of the trade-offs for pinpoint sharp stars across the entire field. I don't find this slight effect to be bothersome, but others might. Absolutely the best wide field viewing experience I've ever had in a 1.25" eyepiece. Highly recommended.

I love the wide view with this lower power eyepiece. The soft rubber eyecup is the perfect height to position your eye for viewing. Pros: wide view, great optics Cons: none

I bought this to get the largest FOV possible in a 1.25" diagonal for my LX90. Even though I had 3 Delos eyepieces, it still took my breath away. Great contrast, color neutral, sharp field to the edge. What's not to like
