Do you have a vintage jewel?

I used to have a .965 inch Vixen 20mm Kellner with my Astro Systems newtonian and that was a great little eyepiece. Not the widest of views of course but very sharp and contrasty. 






That's lovely John! I was allowed to borrow a 0.96"  25mm K from a Burnley telescope manufacturer called 'Cosmotron' (remember them?). It had a grey volcano top and I used it for a short time in my 60mm Prinz Astral. That little Kellner transformed that telescope. However, I was conscious the eyepiece didn't belong to me and so I returned it too soon really. It didn't occur to me to buy it, although it was probably beyond my financial means at the time, as I was only a poor apprentice, coughing up my weekly wage to my mum and getting £7 spending money in return.  Happy days! 🌞

When I say set, I suspect there may be a 4 and 5 as well but not sure.

There was a 4mm and 5mm and also a 9mm and 25mm.

From Vixen 1991 catalogue.
