Would those of you who own the Pan series please post a note on the performance of the new 24mm Pan. Thanks.

Well, I have only had mine a couple of days, and it brought clouds with it. I did get a chance to try it out last night in my Pronto on the Moon...until the clouds came back again. In a word, it is amazing! Only about a half pound, looks like a very slightly larger version of the 19mm Panoptic, and just as nice. Much lighter than the 22mm Pan, so I have no regrets at having sold my 22mm to finance the 24mm.

I look forward to trying it in my 18" and 11" Starmaster dobs, but I was sufficiently impressed to order a second one so I can use them in the binoviewer. Sorry I can't provide more detail...maybe once it clears up again.

This is by far the best eyepiece I've ever had. Contrast, sharpness, plus wide angle and lightweight. I sold my 27 Pan after I got it with NO regrets.
