  1. I have a 10mm Delos from a previous scope. I doubt the Ethos is better, apart from the AFOV, Don. I’ve never looked through the 17 Ethos.
  2. The 13mm Ethos was my first one. I liked it enough to later purchase the 21, 8, 6, 4.7 and 3.7. I still have all of them.
  3. John, that Ethos has proven to be a cuckoo in the nest. It has driven out everyone except the grenade.
  4. Welcome to the club. The 21mm Ethos is a gem.
  5. That is one of my 3 favourites in the line (the other two being the 6 and the 21mm). I hope you enjoy it. Post a report when you use it!
  6. Haha. I think you already know the answer to your question.
  7. Of the Ethos I own, my favourites are the 6 and the 21. The 6 ‘only’ gives me 90x, but coupled with the 2” 2x Powermate, I get 180x and the view loses none of its crispness. How is that for addressing both aspects of the original topic of the thread!
  8. Interestingly, the Ethos 21 gives me 26x and a 3.8* AFOV in my np-101. The Ethos 21 is a bit of a bully, however, refusing to leave the focuser for other eyepieces.
  9. That’s the version I have, John. It works fine with my refractor.
  10. It’s quite good; I think you’ll like it.
  11. Amusingly, I own both the Antares 1.6x and the Powermate 2x. Each has its place.
  12. As usual, Don, a very thorough explanation. It’s much appreciated! I notice that in the discussion you recommended the APM 30mm UFF over the 31 Nagler. Was that simply for reasons of cost and weight?
  13. Don, what didn’t you like about the 21mm Ethos? It’s one of my favorites.
