The 14mm was dropped by another observer...so he replaced it with a shiny new 14mm Argon Purged one one......as seen here!

Very nice set of eyepieces you have there Brian. You must be a patient person to have picked them all up in IIS.

Thanks Allan , yes 6 years so far Whew!

And yes Mr Bruess , they are a steal at that price , its the 2nd one I have , I have the bigger size for my Ioptron IEQ45 mount , a perfect fit .

I will grab another for my Naglers I have grabbed here at IIS as well , great cases for sure .

Brian.

Brian... that's a good effort..... to get a good set...takes time...but worth the effort.

Here are most of my ' Bino ' eyepieces....these took some time to get together also....2 pair came with the Binoviewer...the rest sourced from the rest of the Universe

also a recent purchase....27 Panoptic ....bargain price to....great combo with the TV76.....wide field views ....just ever sooooo nice....!!

Sure does Flash , years , my last buy for a while was last week a 16mm T2 Nagler to go with my others .
I will grab a $29 case from Bunnings same type as my Radian Panoptic case .
I will post a photo soon , and that's IT!!!

Just gotta keep out of IIs's classifieds, that's not easy tho .

Hey Flash, nice gear, I like your TV Refractor.

How do your D21 and Pan19 compare in your bino? Could you pick one set over the other? I'm in the market for either of these 2 pair. Cheers

Naglers , and Axiom .

Well the 16mm Nagler T2 arrived today and its the last Astronomy purchase for me in a while , I have all I need now and these along with my previous post here showing my radians and Pan's is plenty for me .

So here are my Naglers .

9mm T1 , 13mm T1 , 16mm T2 , 17mm T4 , 20mm T2 along with my awesome Celestron Axiom 31mm 82* , this eyepiece is as good as a friends TV 31mm Nagler at 1/2 the price so I don't need one and it compliments the naglers very well .
You should see the southern milky way in my Tak sky90 and this Axiom 31mm , awesome ! .
The AT titan 40mm is best in my M210 , a nice 40x sharp and to the edge .

On a side note I went to Bunnings this morning to grab a CraftRight case like my other only to find they have gone up $10 to $39 now ,
Still good value tho .
Brian.

Both cases

Here are all my eyepieces , every one bar the Celectron 31mm Axiom ( that come off NZ's 'Trade Me' ) and the 2x Powermate ( Bintel ) has been bought off IIS , over 6 long years ,, whew!! .

A few $$'s worth but a lot cheaper than buying new and as I said the cost has been spread over 6 years .
I am happy with what I have now .

All these eyepieces work well in every scope I own .
Brian.

It's good to spread your purchases over 6 years than 6 weeks or months.That way you don't go broke or have to borrow money and get into big credit card debt.
Astronomy can be an expensive and addictive hobby with all those seductive ads for equipment when you read articles in magazines and even the internet now.
