Cracked , chipped lens ?

Recommended Posts

My heart sank when I found my Bresser 35mm 70 series  with a chipped len ..  I have other eyepieces with cracks , etc.. 

Some lens are still good , so I wonder if I can buy other's similar eyepieces with cracked lens as well to refurbish mine.. 

Cheap lens like Plossi and others tend to be dirty inside when new, I notice.. Any disagreement? 

I doubt about Televues, or other top quality ones  so relax....

Having multiple eyepieces with cracks would make me wonder if I store/handle my eyepieces properly.

I also never came across eyepiece that I would describe as dirty on the inside. I didn't have a whole lot of cheaper eyepieces, 10 total maybe. Some may have had a spec of dust or flake of paint between lenses. But nothing so bad that I would call it dirty. I am sure there are some out there as a result of poor QC of the cheaper products, but they don't tend to be this way from my experience.

Maybe the box or case you keep them loose in is the problem, they certainy should not show cracks or dirt.  Any loose ep's I have I keep in bolt cases.
