    Default Astro-Physics Planetary Eyepieces



    Hi Gang!
    Can someone please update me as to what we [collectively] know about these?
    Specifically, I'm most curious about which focal lengths are going to be
    produced. I'm also wondering how many things I'll have to sell to secure my
    set. I hear Valery is closing in on perfection.

    Thanks,
    Ed T.

    Valery has attained perfection, but knowing the fate that has befallen
    others whose divinity has been revealed (Dionysus, Al Gore), chooses
    to maintain his relationship with the common people by making
    occasional intentional errors in grammar and spelling.

    IOW, you don't know.

    I'd also be interested in information on these eyepieces if anybody's had a
    chance to test one.

    Dionysus and Al Gore! Sheesh! Take a nice, long, cold shower why doncha?

    But seriously, the real last version is reportedly being tested before starting
    production.

    They better be better than the TMB Monocentrics or they'll flop.

    If they're as good as the Mono's, ZAO's, Pentax, etc. they'll sell like
    hotcakes. The wider FOV and better eyerelief is a big improvement over the
    Mono's. They should cost significantly less than the Zeiss and be more
    readily available than the smc orthos.

    Not necessary. Even if the new AP planetary eyepiece has "equal
    performance" as the TMB Monocentrics, the wider AFOV and
    a more generous eye relief (than the Zeiss Abbe orthos) may make
    the AP ones, a big hit.
