TeleVue Radian 14mm.....................****
TeleVue Radian 12mm.....................***
TeleVue Ethos 10mm....................*****+
TeleVue Radian 6mm........................**
Vixen LV 4mm plossl...................1/2 *

2.5 Barlow............................. ........**
CLS Filter............................. .........*****
Polorising Filter Set.........................***
And 4 other Coloured Filters.............*

TeleVue Ethos 10mm (Still awaiting good skies to test full capability, but impressive so far)

Vixen LV 4mm plossl (The first eyepiece We bought wanting to see planets in great detail from a 5 inch telescope..........Two Words sucked in.... whilst it is a fantastic quality eyepiece, I should not of been sold this eyepiece from the start....... ........As for now it would make an expensive round for a slingshot

The CLS filter gets a really good workout, we once did a public night with SASI and the kids couldn't get over the green Saturn, yes we did explain that isn't its natural colour but some how i think they will remember it for life

The Barlow doesn't really get touched, no good reason why, but its there anyway

I'm that impressed with the ethos that I'm considering selling the radians and Panoptics and having a 3 ethos set........

We now have a 10 inch collapsible Skywatcher, but probably looking at upgrading to a 16 inch scope to take full advantage of the eyepieces
