    Well, yeah... "Would go for the 82 degree 30 mm before that". John, takes young pup eyes to utilize the 100 degree field beyond the 82. Can you do it? The 82's a stretch for me...

    Yeah, John. I got "sticker shock", myself, when I saw the 30mm 100*. If memory serves me correctly, I think it was right at $600 (more w/ tax). The weather's been so bad here, I haven't even gotten a chance to use ANY of the 100s. I've had them five, or six weeks! We've had had weather very similar to Florida. Absolutely awful. When I used them (all of them) during the day for visual, the CA was definitely noticeable, but it's wasn't noticeable at night. (I got to use it about 5 minutes one night) There was a bright orange and blue halo around the outer edge of the viewing area. I had to ask someone else what that was. I'd never seen it, before. Has anyone tried them for daytime visual with the same result? Just curious. Lon ...

    Hello Lon. I notice the same thing with my 9mm 100* ES eyepiece. In daylight terrestrial viewing, there is a slight orange ring around the very outer perimeter of the glass. This is not noticeable at all in night time astronomical viewing. However, like you, I have had NO viewing for weeks now here in Florida either, with the constant rain. Here's hoping for better weather for everybody, and best of regards to all.
