Anyone use this eyepiece in a C9.25...wondered if the performance might be a bit better in this OTA.

I use one (1rpd version) in my 8" SCT. I'm satisfied. FOV gets soft at 80%. Acceptable, IMO, for the minimal investment!

I've got the 1rpd version as well. I'm waiting on a 2" to SCT thread adapter so I can use my 2" diagonal with my C9.25. I'll give a report when I get a chance to use them together.

I use this eyepiece in a 10" LX200 and several Pierre Schwaar newts, 10" to 17.5". The eyepiece works very well in all of them. It's pretty darn close to my 31 Nag. It's more than worth twice the price. There's actually some real pride owning this one!. I bought it from Anacortes.
