Vixen 22 LVW
I purchased this EP at SCAE this year. I gave it a quick test on the Moon shortly after the first quarter. Using an SV80L APO triplet (f/7.5, 600 mm f/l I looked for any CA, pin cushion or other abberations and found none. The lunar limb was razor sharp as was the terminator. Contrast was excellent and the image very bright. Should be great for DSO's.
