Rest In Peace BGO!


Recommended Posts

I was waiting on a 12.5mm for a month or so but FLO just couldn't get one. Got an 18mm instead and love it in my 180 Mak.

But still looking...

Has anyone tried these orthos? Lyra Optic - Eyepieces

Cheers

Ian

the 18mm is a superb ep for the 180 pro, x150 or x 300 with a barlow

I had a 9mm volcano top Ortho for a while.

A very nice EP especially for their price and not that much between them and the Baader ones.

The Baader ones are slightly sharper off axis. In the centre theres not a lot in it.

I shall probably be able to gaze wistfully at my ex 9mm, 12.5mm and 18mm happy in their new homes with Moonshane and Nightfisher at PSP ;);)

Right decision to sell because I wasn't using them enough but they are very good!!

you can borrow them anytime mate! the 9mm is in my scope now but it's a white out currently. funnily enough I must be one of the few people that find the flat top of the BGOs more comfortable and easier to find correct eye placement than with the VTs. I had a 9mm UO VT and it was nice but much prefer the 9mm BGO.

Cheers Shane, appreciated ;):)

Haven't bothered putting the scope out tonight, wall to wall cloud, hoping tomorrow may be better. Just glad I got a good crack at mars last night
