Make sure this eyepiece doesn't push your telescope beyond its practical magnification range.
One thing I noticed with this eyepiece is that it doesn't focus perfectly unless it isn't seated all the way into my telescope. I had to insert it less than all the way into the mount to have room to focus it. I'm planning to fashion a foam rubber gasket to correct the problem. Otherwise, imaging was great. A worthy substitute for the defunct Orion Epic ED-2 eyepiece.
I use X-cel LX eyepieces on a 150mm celestron omni newtonian and I'm working on getting the entire set. Very pleased with this series. I'm sure you'll love them too. Very sharp image and excellent construction. Big lens for a large image (no straining your eye to see) highy recommend these eyepiece if you want great quality for a decent price.
I use this eyepiece with my 12" Dobsonian telescope. It provides great views of the planets. Images are clear with a wide view of field.
