    Vixen SLV here is £120. A Delite is £250... it does make the SLV an attractive option! Also, the SLV comes in 2.5mm as well for uber good seeing nights!

    Steve, Yep I have the same problem... . I recently got the 14mm Delos and while quite happy with my ES82s... there's a nagging to get the 10mm Delos. I may have to wait for one to come up second hand though or possibly the Pentax XW 10mm which is considerably cheaper and similar performance.

    Sorry Dave,

    I believe I messed you up by deleting my post you were referencing. The reason I deleted my post was because I started looking closer and realized the DeLites are notably cheaper than the Vixen HR's in question, which puts me even closer to adding a 3mm DeLite to my lineup. It also pretty much kills any desire I have of trying the Vixen HR's.

    But, as I said in my deleted post, I'll admit to being a little worried that I'd find the DeLite to be better or more enjoyable than my current Tak Abbes and make me want to replace them, which I can't afford to do.
