Anyone use this in a telescope...I've got the Leica 22MM (30X) and their zoom lense that I will be using with a C9.25...But I never see reviews of this one and wondered if it might make a good planetary hight power eyepiece.

they have a new B40 which is now also a widefield. Its an excellent widefield, but a Planetary Eyepiece ? Yes but not like the very best out.
Take a Look to the Kowa 9 mm 70° this was reviewed recently in germany as an very high quality Planetary eyepiece, with 17 mm eyerelief and a price of $ 220

best wishes
