Pete,
For more eye-relief than the Nagler and more AFOV than the XW you have also the Baader Morpheus - in practise, the AFOV is closer to the Nagler than to the XW. The minus are that isn't...

If you are happy with the Nagler 9 (i.e. the reduced eye-relief isn't limiting for you, unlike me...), you should try an Ethos clone of 9mm. Within this focal length I think the Ethos (8 or 10mm) are...

astro eyepieces usable?

Just had a look on Harpia info at Zeiss web-site and still no news about other accessories (expected to October...), so we still don't know for sure if astro eyepieces can be used... |:S|

It doesn't make much sense using a not good unit as a demo in a bird fair. Would it be due to the dual-speed focus that didn't allow you to reach a perfect focus?
