    Default ES 82* 18mm - on the way



    Well, I didn't get one from the big ES sale currently happening, I found a used, older-Nitrogen purged, that was described in mint condition on the way.

    Should be here Monday. No idea when I will be able to use it though!

    Oooo, congrats Brett! That is one fine eyepiece. You'll enjoy it immensely!

    Mine is nitrogen purged as well. No difference optically between the two versions. Argon just has a bigger molecule and is slightly less likely to escape.

    Good find! Looking forward to hearing about your first light experience with this EP, if you ever get a chance.

    Yeah, I have read that there is no difference between the Argons and the Nitrogens optically, so I was sold! Sounds like just a way for ES to charge more money!

    Seems like everybody has one of these bad boys. Must be one heck of an eyepiece. Best of luck with her.

    Agreed, all of the reviews of them are great.

    I am loving the 11mm and the 6.7mm, and I was planning on the 18 for my stable as well.

    Someday, I may invest in the 30mm 82*, and the 14mm 100* and 9mm 100*, we'll see - these are a long road into the future though.

    If God stuck his finger through the clouds and decreed that I could only have one eyepiece, it would be the 18mm 82 deg ES.

    Since I'm an old cuss (sorry Dan), my exit pupil is around 5mm. Given that, the 24mm 82 deg ES is pretty much my max with my (f/4.92) 10" Dob. Given that, I still have a 31mm 71 deg Aspheric Hyperion in my case on the off-chance that a younger-eyed person should stop by.

    Congratulations on finding the 18mm! They're about a scarce as hens teeth.

    There is a big difference between the two ; One is filled with Argon and the other is filled with Nitrogen I'm just being funny I'm glad you found one , you will be happy with it

    Hi Brett, congratulations on the 82° 18 mm EP. That's definitely on my wish list, but I have to get a 2" diagonal first. That being said, I want several of the others in the 82° series too, and maybe one or two from the 100° series. Clear skies.

    Congratulations Brett. I know you will be very happy with the ES 18. I'm not sure that there is a weak link with any of the ES line. I'm really happy with my 14 & 20 100 degree eyepieces not to mention the 5.5. These seem to be a perfect fit for my Dob. The 14mm is the one that I use the most!
