Some of my Early Japanese Plossl's

These are excellent eyepieces to use .. known as ' black tops '.... 1st 3 pic's

Meade EWF 40mm Plossl's ...hard to find in good condition as these are ... but narrow fov'

Parks Gold Series 25mm ... outstanding ..!!

Orion UltraScopic 35mm .. outstanding also ..!!

These eyepieces ( Early Japanese Plossl's ) would give the ' Modern ' Day ' Plossl's a run for their money.

My smaller case I take with me when I am observing with my 12". A nice useful spread of magnifications and exit pupils.

Impressive Televue collection Brian. I am looking for a Televue Nagler 2.5 and 3.5mm. Naglers are just the right size and greater field of view.

Thanks Matt , I wouldn't say no to either of those Naglers or a TV zoom as well ,
but they are snapped up so fast when one shows up

Near set Takahashi Orthos and TOE ortho

My Grab and Go City eps..not a Nagler in sight..poor me!

Best Eyepieces I've ever looked through for CLARITY and CONTRAST ..KKs very good ..but these another level!

Its like theres NO glass in your way..in my Naglers, Delos ..you can see your looking through a lot of glass..Clarity not quite the same in my view..

The Vixen NLVs...some are surprising and clear...not so with most SLVs I tried.

TAK Orthos and TOE 3.3MM ..Ultimate Doubles and Planetary EPs Ive tried so far..I just see more when the seeing is very good. ..very ,very enjoyable EPs, with outstanding comfort, build and ergonomics...even the 6mm!

Tak Abbe 12.5mm ...my most used.

PS:Even my wife and the neighbours can tell the difference..and even after a few beers and there no experts!...
The EDs are for the neighbours and friends to use on the Moon, Planets..very good clear and honest eps, notably below 15mm..even survive tomato sauce, meat pie pieces, and accidental droppings by semi drunk friends and neighbours when I have a BBQ...perfect B Set.
