Very nice :smiley:

I like the Type 4 Nagler eyepieces, I used to have the 22mm and loved it.

The 22mm and the 12mm are on the hit list, should be this side of Xmas.....:)

The T4 range look lovely, I had the 12mm and though it is a very good eyepiece and only got evicted from the case by a Delos, I did find it a little difficult with eye placement. The Delos is easier to use but this could of course be different for other people.

That 30mm Pentax is a size, almost the same size as the 41mm Panoptic and I am looking at mine now.

Alan.

Agreed, very nice.

I do miss my 17 and 22mm T4's. Such nice compact eyepieces compared with the Ethos, and excellent performance still.

Perhaps one day I'll find a way to get them back :-)

Agreed but I would still like to try a Nikon 100, a ZO ll and XO 5mm which is of course Pentax.

I think Stu's ex-eyepieces are scattered over most of the UK!

Only recently managed to pick up a replacement for that 12.5mm BGO I sold you Shane! Gets a lot of use these days :-)

I still have it so don't feel too bad, it's being looked after and used too.

glad you got a replacement, it's a quality eyepiece.

It's a strange one, I never really appreciated it when I first had it, but since buying first a 12.5mm Hutech and then finally another BGO I use it all the time. It is great for white light solar, plus a whole load of Astro uses in a variety of scopes. In fact my little Ortho/Plossl/nag zoom/24mm panoptic case covers much of my observing these days, particularly when travelling

Actually there are a few around Europe too :-) one with Alan in Bulgaria I think, and one made it to Cyprus!

I like all the BGOs, but the longer focal lengths (18mm, 12.5mm and 9mm) are really lovely eyepieces to use in my opinion.

And since we're on the subject of BGOs, Naglers and Pans, here's the current contents of my own eyepiece case.  Apologies for the poor photo.  I'll try to get a better one at some point.

I'm sure I've got one or two of your ex eyepieces. I've also got a few of your scopes too  :rolleyes:

Perhaps we should start a thread, locating Stu`s ex ep`s  :grin: his old BGO18 is still in Queensbury

Strange but i have not added to my ep`s for more than a year, other than buying a used 10mm TAL plossl that i dont like, but i am feeling the need for a Revelation 32mm plossl to use in the little Vixen, i do have one of these but its the photo visual, i dont think its as good as the standard one

Shane,

Bulgaria as well, I still have his 7mm Nagler.

Sorry Stu I missed that from you, yes I still have it but have you still got my 10mm Delos or did I buy it back from Mike?

James,

I like a man with taste. Beautiful collection, thinking of adding a 5mm Nagler myself even though I have the XW, I've run out of things to write about at the moment.

Not just EPs, I have very handy mini-giro (just used it now) that once belonged to Stu. Drawing a map with lines linking all SGL members who have exchanged kit would give a really dense graph.
