Even I am too proud to stick cheap Huygenian EPs etc. in there!

That's what I have my Z-team case for.  I have Kellners, reverse Kellners, 70 degree Konig variants, Rini modified Plossls, etc. in it.

I bet none of them have plastic lenses though 🤪

No, definitely no plastic lenses in there.  I do have a Galileo telescope kit that uses a singlet DCX lens for the objective and another for the eyepiece, IIRC.  Pretty crappy views, but assembling the whole thing from cardboard tubes and washers was fun.

Guys, I want to ask: In these cases with the precut foam like the B&W, how can you glue the foam back again to rearrange your eyepieces?

You can buy new foam from places like this and they also sell aerosol adhesive to glue bits in.

It depends if it is high density or low density.  High density foam like that found in high end cases like Pelican can just be put back in place and will generally stay put due to friction and rigidity.  Low density like that found in discount store cases can also be put back in place, but it tends to move about as eyepieces are pulled out and put back.  Heck, low density foam tends to keep tearing along the perforation lines over time.  I've had high density foam in a couple of 20 year old cases that has yet to crumble, so it's worth the investment.

Hi Avtar, that's a good set-up you have there, you seem to have all bases covered!

Avtar, if I had a pound for each time someone says that, I could buy  number of decent eye pieces.

The basis of my viewing. A Nagler 26m and two Nikon Nav HW EP;s at 17 and 12.5mm. 

I should point out the Nikons come with what are effectively barlows which gives a 14 and 10mm respectively. 

Now chuck a 2x TV Powermate at that lot coupled with a 1200 FL dob and I would say all bases are covered.

See my signature below and at last I think I have cracked it 👍

Pretty standard, Plossl-full Celestron with the odd addition here and there. Set of 7 filters that I am still working through inc. moon.

 

Forgive any errors or omissions and please be kind, I’m new to all this having come from a hefty film background and looking to film the heavens.

 

I really struggle with lining up the eye with anything less than the 13mm but with the 2x Barlow it’s 6mm but the 32mm with the 3x Ostara will be tested and hope to post results. Took the attached pic with an iPhone held over the 32mm.

I'm up to six cases now.  Hold onto that old case, you'll need it.  I guarantee it.

Here is my collection so far. As things progress I will trade the Celestron ones in for something else. Probably Tele Vue due to the pressure from other people's posts!! 😂😂😂

The Vixen SSW will need practice. My favourite is the LVW 22 I just bought from an SGL member.
