Inexpensive but some value
I purchased this set about 3 years ago, about $25. The 6 mm eyepiece surprised me and works quite well in my 10-inch Dobsonian. The view was clear with minor abberation at the edge. The 12.5 mm eyepiece was disappointingly blurry. I just bought this set so I could slap on an inexpensive finder on the Dob. The software is decent. I actually use the bag on a tabletop 114-mm reflector. The moon filter is okay. So for $25 it is a good value, 4 out of 5 stars. The 12.5 mm eyepiece was found wanting. I believe the optics are glass, except for the filter. Eyepiece is made out of plastic as is the finder: it does have a crosshair and caps however. Decent value: 1 of 2 eyepiece usable, finder is usable, moon filter works, decent software, and a good nylon bag/dust cover. Conditional "Yes" recommendation.
