    Rich thanks!
    I waited for it for quite some time and when one came up at Astromart, jumped on it right away and got a good specimen too! You're right, it gives great views and it is a serious thing of beauty, a classic in every sense of the word, both aesthetic and performance-wise (many say it's better than the current non-smoothside 56mm's):

    The views that it provided on SCT or refractor were panoramic tack sharp to the edge swaths of the night sky, something that can make one go wow! It is reminiscent of glimpses afforded by top-rank EPs like the Naglers or Panoptics. It will give the TV55mm a run for its money, 5-stars! Here's what's under (field lens):

    This EP is a definite keeper and one that will be a prized possession, whatta classic!
