Recommended $15 alternative to 32mm plossl

I've compared this 23mm plastic aspheric to a 32mm plossl. The results were very close in contrast and detail clarity.
Good choice for beginners on budget and telescope focal ratio above 8.
Visible field is 90% as wide as 32mm plossl so it can serve as a searching eyepiece as well.

on desktop browser , go to ebay.com.sg and search "23mm eyepiece"
left column select "worldwide" and "free shipping"

For items with the option to offer a price to the seller , you can try to negotiate 5 to 10% lower.
On Paypal payment don't use the default auto currency convert (cost 3% higher) , click the blue text and switch back to bill in native currency
