30mm ES 82 deg

Hi Greg & All,

I bought the 30mm 82 deg second hand here on IIS for about a quarter the cost of a brand-new 31mm Televue T5. It was practically brand new. The eyepiece box is absolutely enormous. If you keep your eyepieces in their boxes in a case, you'll need a suitcase.

With my Newtonian(s) (f/4.85 and f/5) I find it to be an excellent performer with good sharpness nearly to the edge. If I did a direct comparison with the 31mm T5, I think it would be a lesser performer, but not a lot in it. I am very happy with it.

All the other eyepieces in my collection are Televue. I saved about $800 over the new price for a 31mm T5.

Best,

L.
