Wow. I got my PST (ordered 12/27 from ATWB) today. 1st viewable day we've had in the great "North Wet" for days. Seeing was poor but I was able to try the supplied EP, 18mm Cemax, TV 8-24 zoom, Nagler type 6 9mm, and Celestron 12.5 Ultima.
Although the clouds really came and went I liked the Nagler 9 the best so far and the Ultima did good too. ALL of the above EP's came into focus.
I am very happy I bought this scope and this was my 1st views ever of H-Alpha. I look forward to summer more than ever! 8)

I'm finding 9 to 10mm to be a sweet spot with mine too. The views with a 9mm Celestron Plossl and 10mm Celestron Kellner are very nice.
