Is precisely the reason why it's in the shot! They weigh quite a bit as well:
30mm 82 1,030g
20mm 100 968g
14mm 100 872g
9mm 100 657g
... although it's a cheapo electronic weighing scale, so that may not be entirely accurate.

Accumulated a few over the years ... just sold 5 eyepieces yesterday to a couple of IIS Members ( surplus to my needs ) .... went cheap to.
Had a couple of " double up's " because of Binoviewer use.

My Dream was realised on Wednesday when I recieved a big heavy package. While I had intended to slowly accumulate this set one by one over the course of the next few years, I ended up getting the whole lot in one go in the Televue 20/20 20% off sale with an extra 11% discount from the retailer and a favourable Dollar/Euro exchange rate. Ended up paying 2500 instead of the 4500 price in Europe. My Aunt in Seattle took her sweet time forwarding them on to me in Ireland but they were worth the wait.

Here's my collection; A 24mm Panoptic and a 14mm ES 100degree. I do also have some cheapo eps that came with the scope but i haven't used them since i bought the Pano, and i haven't used that since buying the ES. Don't get me wrong, the 24mm Pano is a fantastic EP, but the 100 degrees and sheer quality of the ES and its views mean I can use it on any object. Its literally the only EP i use. I will get a TV 2x Barlow to get the ES down to 7mm and that will be it for me, just so i can cover planets and v small DSO's. Call me strange but i'm a one EP kind of guy!

Well theres no need to wonder now Keith as you bought them all


I recently bought a 13 ethos Jack and also find you can almost live with 100* around this F/L without really wanting to slip in another.

Fairly average collection for my 12" Dob:-

Televue 35mm Panoptic (I like this one very much!)
Celestron 30mm Ploessl
Meade 20mm 4000 Super Ploessl
Orion 9mm Ploessl
Televue 7.4mm Ploessl
Orion 6mm Ploessl

Need to get something good in the 13-17mmm range, possibly another Panoptic or a Nagler, not sure yet. Also examining the possibilities of replacing some of the longer 1.25" units with 2" equivalents. (Apologies for lack of photographs.)

Nice Colin!

Mine have changed again...here they are! The EP's remain, but I have traded the two 1.25" filters for one 2" O-III, and the 1.25" barlow is now gone.

Cheers,

Hey Everyone,


I'm a noob and I would sooo appreciate a line or two about why this particular eye piece is great for you and your scope.

A comment like this goes a loong way - I will certainly stay away from buying this particular one:
Quote:
The coke can has disappointing optical properties, although being free of coma, astigmatism and chromatic abberation, it was somewhat opaque. I also had to use a 4lb lump hammer to get it in the focuser.
I can best describe it's performance as "sub-optimal". Still, it's probably better than those Modified Achromat eyepieces you get with low-end SkyWatchers ...
More of this, pretty please?

Cheers Annette
