Mine was all TV once.
But who can justify $1300- for an EP?
So I sold all my Ethoi, Deloi, Radians and Naglers
Now I am happy with the Luminos range while adding
the Meade MWA eyepieces. You can get 4 of these for 1 TV.
Even though the TV has better image quality its not 4X better

I am pretty much set for eyepieces now, after testing Ethos/Nagler/XW/Radian/etc etc....

I now have the Delos lineup for monoviewing and for binoviewing I have pairs of XF8.5/Pan24/LOA21/LE5, 7.5, 18 & 30....

The Delos are all converted to 2" using Blue Fireball adapters which allow them to be set parfocal.....

Just one low power to get......... maybe another APM 30UFF or Pano27

As my wife just said to me tonight as I was trying to justify another scope purchase after saying no more astro purchases for me ... I have heard that one before (too many eyepiece purchases as well for me!)
