    I have been looking for one of these for months. I was told they would be into Telescope House in London by December 13th.

    But, guess what was on UK Astronomy Buy and Sell last Thursday, and is now sitting smiling at me

    I have the 14mm and it is a great ep! The 5.5 is too much magnification for me but with my experience with the only s5000 i have- im sure they are all a great ep and worth the trouble getting one.
    Happy Hunting!!!
