    bloody expensive, ha, ha, ha

    Hello Shorty Barlow, my friend,

    I've got the Wild Heerbrugg ultrawide from the sales of Manfred Pieper's estate
    30 mm Okular Wild
    and paid less than for a Swiss Army knife.
    Manfred Pieper used to repurpose the Swiss Army and other military optics for the hobby astronomy.
    We will be missing him badly, as Rodenstock, Wild, and ZEISS, have made new optics designs with the new glass materials and technologies, not otherwise available.

    The year 2018 has been quite extraordinary, as lots of excellent seldom seen stuff came on the market.
    It has been a pretty expensive year, though.

    Best,

    JG

    Well it looks good anyway. Usually military specification equipment is top quality. I spent a bit in 2018. I don't regret it though and I'm really looking forward to milder spring weather and clearer skies so I can test it all lol.
