Is this correct?
It does not do this on the one that I have, is there something wrong with the EP?

Disregard, I was being stupide. I was holding the metal part and trying to twist the rubber cap at the same time, no wonder it would not come up away from the lens. It works great.

I would like to get the HD-60 eyepieces, just being curious about them, but my five element ones are doing so well that I really cannot justify getting anything else.
I have had good luck using the 5 element plossles with my LS8 and any number of refractors and reflectors in the f/8 to f/10 range.
The one scope that I had trouble using these is an f/3.8 114mm diameter reflector, which simply put the image too far out to the sides and I ran into a lot of bloating. The problem probably had more to do with the scope than the eyepieces. With that radical of a scope, I stick with narrower field eyepieces and do just fine.
