    Being clear right now, allowed me to test out the new lens.
    
    I noticed that in wide feild view, I can't see below 5th magnitude so far. 
    
    If I have it set, so it gives a narrow feild of view, I can see between 7 to 8 magnitude with it.
    
    I find it harder to focus, then my current lens.  I find the image quality of the stars using my
    other lens was much better, then the new lens. 
    
    So I give it 2 thumbs down, and don't recommend it. So it won't be showing up on my video setup
    page.
