Cracking eyepieces!

The 16mm in particular I feel is excellent, better than most of the 4000 series.. enjoy!👍😀

Hi Dantooine, diagonal only arrived on Tuesday & not had any clear skies since to use it, but build quality is the usual excellent for Baader accessories. The clicklock mechanisms are really easy to use & the clamping is strong. If you want to upgrade a diagonal, I would recommend looking at the Baader range.

I’ve bought a new baader 2inch diagonal on your recommendation. Such a nice bit of kit. My ethos fit in 2inch mode without the 1.25 barrel making contact with the prism, this was a worry to say the least. Very happy.

Well Postman Pete has been a few minutes ago bearing an awaited parcel.
Please welcome the Ultima 18 mm to my collection.
So pleased with it, I have even forgiven it having an undercut!  and that's quite a forgiveness.

I see you have the deep sky atlas... How does this compare with sky and telescope pocket sky atlas?

My recent shopping spree is begining to bare fruits!

It's got an awful lot of instructions with it, mostly relating to accessories I'll need to make it work properly! I'll see how it goes as is first.

Other items due this week with ASI in their descriptions :)

I was using my one of those a lot last night. 

Very nice eyepiece indeed.

Over the past few days the Postman brought a vintage phase contrast compound Microscope and a variety of related consumables.

A companion scope to the stereo Microscope, for those cloudy & rainy nights.  :smile:

Interesting Jeremy..

Two Questions..

1. Did that book Signal the rise of female involvement in Astronomy?

2. (and importantly..) will you be fitting the book with a Handle??😁:hiding:

I fall asleep by trying to fill the slots in my eyepiece case. 12 slots currently containing three eyepieces, so many choices. I'm asleep before I fill the final row.

That’s odd. Thinking about eyepieces keeps me awake at night. It’s the excitement and anticipation.
