    If that renovation doesn't include an observatory then you're wrong!

I can move from galaxy to galaxy with just this eyepiece.

    Just my thoughts on the deal.
    I am thinking the 11 then for the Lightbridge when she comes in. I have a few huge larger ones (Meade) but the ones I have in that size leave me wanting better. I wish it were a 2" though, or a dual like the Baader. But $99.00...already in my cart. Bought a lot of stuff lately, but the sales are tough to ignore.

    Why? Is it just to avoid having to use the 1.25" adapter?
