I use this zoom eyepiece in my Meade ETX 80 and my Orion XT8i. It has become my default eyepiece. It is not quite as sharp and clear as my Meade or Orion Plossil eyepieces but it is fine for most cases. If I want to spend detailed time on a subject then I might use this to find the best mag then switch to a single mag. But may times this is the only eyepiece I use, sometimes combined with a 2X barlow.
This tripod is sturdy enough to hold a small to medium refractor reasonably steady, and is easy to use. It compares favorably with similar but higher priced models of other brands that I have used.
