  1. With thanks to all for looking, now withdrawn, at least for a while. May be archived at mod's convenience, with thanks.
  2. Item is now sold and may be archived at mod's convenience, with grateful thanks.
  3. Will consider offers for these and will sell separately. Thanks again for looking.
  4. Withdrawn due to lack of interest at this time. Thanks to all for looking. Mods, please archive at your convenience, with grateful thanks.
  5. Just to be totally clear, it's not my recommendation, I respect that others are attentive enough to mention it as an option. I'll leave off now.
  6. Well, @alex_stars , it's a very compelling option at the price: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/ovl-eyepieces/hyperflex-72mm-215mm-eyepiece.html I really like the Hyperflex and Baader zooms. They work very well indeed. Admittedly, they didn't come to my mind for someone specifically seeking planetary performance at 12mm. I admire the way you're going about determining what it is you seek, very methodical. Good luck and hope to read about it.
  7. As this seems to me to be in response to my own remarks, I happily and wholeheartedly defer to your judgement on the matter. Let it be so, that the Hyperflex is an improvement over the Seben. In the interest of our original poster Alex, and his quest for improved planetary performance at 12mm, I personally wouldn't recommend the Hyperflex (which I did like very much, myself) as a significant upgrade to his Seben. However, if you would, I would be happy and interested to know. Specifically, has the unbarlowed performance of the Hyperflex grown on you?
  8. Thoughts: I urge you to read the following, as it thoroughly explains @John's zoom-barlow-combo: https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/317641-happy-coincidence/ It would seem that this barlow enhances the performance of this particular zoom, giving excellent views at (barlowed) focal lengths ranging from 9.55mm to 3.2mm. (I tried this combo myself, and was impressed as well.) This does not cover your desired focal length of 12mm. It's in my mind that the (unbarlowed) Hyperflex zoom at 12mm would not be much of an improvement (if at all) in any way over your current zoom.
  9. Right. No pressure, then. From my own experience, close to 12mm (I won't spoil the web-window-shopping by putting in all the specs here): A little too long... 13mm Tele Vue Ethos: Fantastic. Very wide view. Very expensive. Probably the last 13mm you'll ever acquire, a keeper, unless the size and weight eventually put you off (it happens... ). 13mm Tele Vue Nagler Type 6: I use the Type 6's exclusively now, my personal compromise. Wide and sharp, compact and light. Not cheap. Just about there... 12.5mm Baader Morpheus: Very nice eyepiece; view certainly wide eno
  10. It does! I use an optics blower - you know, one of those rubber syringes used for blowing dust off lenses, etc.
