    Default TS 32mm Superview 1.25". Any good ?



    I was looking for completing my EPs range and get something larger than 30mm, then I found this one:
    https://www.teleskop-express.de/shop...daptation.html

    OK, I know it's a plössl type which will provide aFOV of c.52º and won't be able to compete with any 2" eyepiece, but my reasons for considering this 'odd' EP are:

    - to still use my filters on it, specially the Lumicon UHC
    - they have a T2-M52 ring so I can fit my Sony point&shoot (ccd chip) for short exposure Moon pics, using my 2.5x barlow
    - they claim it to have a larger exit lens which might help to see no vigneting, both in visual and ap ?

    Any thoughts, folks ?
    Anyone has one of those superviews ? Do they have anything to do with GSO's ?

    Thanks and clear skies

    in a word,yes.
    i have one of those,they are actually gso ep's rebranded.
    identical to mine.
    great for visual,and they have the extending body
    (around 50mm),so good for ap too.
    an all in ep at a very good price.
    clear skies,

    GSO GSO 32-PI 32mm Super Plossl visual & Photo-imaging eyepiece
    here's a link to a uk site selling them.
    not sure if there will be much difference in price though
    once exchange rates are considered.
    though 72 euro's seems about right.
    if you look in my album,you'll see mine there!

    Many thanks for the link, Andy !

    They are exactly the same and, with eur/gbp rate at 0,8340, it will be less than 50€. So, even if we apply a crazy fee on credit card payment on different currency of,say, 15%, it is still below 60€ !

    Have you bought in the past from them ?

    yes buddy on a number of occasions.
    they are quick with delivery and great to talk to if
    you need to phone them or email them.
    i wouldn't link a poor distributor.
