Just wanted to get your views on Orthos, do you use them?

How do you find them?

Would you use a ortho over a plossl?

Whats your views? :D

I use both, to be honest whilst the ortho`s have a limited field of view i do find that they provide a very crisp and sharp image. I had my best ever view of Saturn through my University Optics 4mm orthoscopic eyepiece. The plossls are good and give reasonably good views but i personnaly think that a good orthoscopic eyepiece will give slightly sharper views in most cases but this is just my own experience and opinion and my experience is limited.

Other more experienced members may have drawn a different conclusion?
