And you're missing the 42... however I have an LV50 which IMHO is better...

/you'll have to prise the 5, 8, 13, 22 and 30 from my cold, dead hands.

Well the 21 Ethos is here and had first light on the last night of Snake Valley Camp.
Pic shows the EP collection as it stands on the Rack of my dob mount.
Consists of 10, 13, 17 and 21 Ethoi, 6mm Delos and the venerable old 13mm Nagler.
I still pull out the 13 Nag as it is still a nice EP.
The other new item is the Argo Navis which I have mounted on a small ball head for a more comfortable viewing angle.

Here are my current eyepieces. Currently sitting in an eyepiece tray I made for my 12" skywatcher dob. Some might suggest the tray is over-engineered for the job at hand, but when its holding nearly $1500 of oculars at a give time... I don't think I've over done it at all.

I have a 35mm panoptic that is my favorite with a 20" F5 dob.
There is also a 41mm Panoptic giving a wider field and for higher mag a 16, 12 and 9mm Nagler.

I will sell these soon with the scope - I have a health problem and a destiny beyond my control. Stay tuned

Nice eyepieces you guys! I added another to the stable. The 14mm Denkmeier! If you're all wondering where the eye cup on the 14m Denk came from, look no further than the 22mm LVW! I took the rubber eye cup off of the 22mm Vixen LVW to see if it would fit on the 14mm Denk and it does! However, I just leave the eye cups on both eyepiece off so I can use my glasses with them!

Cheers,

Eyepieces

A couple of recent additions to my Eyepiece Family.

Notice the 2 x TeleVue 26mm Smooth Side ... the writing is different ...writing at the top ... and writing at the bottom ...also ...one has a more ' pronounced volcano top ' than the other. ...My only guess is the year of manufacture or just a different ' batch ' production.

and .... 2 Denkmeier 21mm FMC made in USA ...these are really nice ..!!
