As I already have the 24mm, I expected the same quality: clarity with a very dark background. I also expected to see a difference in magnification. Unfortunately, I can't discern any difference in magnification and it doesn't seem to make the background as dark. A waste of money.
There are many a nights this is the only eyepiece I use - Works equally well in my 130mm APO and 9.25 SCT - Stars sharp to the edge in both scopes - Easy and comfortable to use - Its light weight just adds to this Pan's attractiveness. Even with other ep's of similiar FL this has a permanent place in my eyepiece box.
