  1. 10mm (mint never used) 50 deg, 15mm 50 deg. Averaging at £30 each. These are the original Vixen LV Lanthanum eye pieces made in Japan - particuarly the 10mm, each has 20mm eye relief. Each has a top & bottom cap. PHOTOS BELOW I will take Paypal friends/family or a cheque (postage when cashed)
  2. I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on a question I have been pondering since I bought my new scope? When I bought my C8 the guy who sold it threw in a heck of a lot of stuff with it, including an anti-dew heater strip, 2 mirror diagonals and five eps (I was totally amazed when I opened the package, even though he had told me in a telcon that he was including them). Anyway, the 32mm, 26mm, 25mm and 10mm I can understand and have been using - on the very odd occasion that we have had clear night skies here! What I cannot work out is when/where you would use a 2mm ep?!? In my scope with a 2000mm focal length that would give me 1000x magnification. As most people on here seem to say that 200x - 300x is the max you could reasonably use in the UK, even with excellent seeing, I was wondering who would have a use for such an eyepiece? Do some scopes come with 400mm focal lengths where this eyepiece could be used? It's a Skywatcher Long Eye Relief (LER) 2mm ep by the way. It's not really that important, it was just that I set my scope up last night and found the ep in my ep box. Notice I said I set my scope up and not, I did some observing, as when I went out after half an hour ready to use my by now cooled down scope, guess what? Yep those damn clouds had rolled in again!
  3. Hi all, I've recently purchased a BST 15mm. Eyepiece. I'm now looking for a 25mm and 8mm eyepiece. Also a x2 Barlow. I need long eye relief as I wear glasses for observing. Thank you, Darrell
