    I was looking at the sale prices on the Agena site earlier. Now's the time to snag a few up for anyone looking. Nice prices on some other ES items as well.

    Maybe TeleVue will feel competitive and have a big sale also. Sigh!

    Yep, TeleVue lost one customer here. I was considering 14 mm Delos, but ES deal is too good to pass .

    14mm ES 82* and 20mm ES 68* for ~half price of one Delos EP, I can live with that

    I have ordered them 20 min. ago and Agena already shipped them. That's service! Shipping is free and they also provide free bolts for each EP you get from them

    Also, used prices already reflecting the sale, so even better deals there

    Yes they are! Just ordered the 18mm from Agena. I'm so glad I waited. Just in time for a trip to the desert next weekend.

    I have the 14mm and it makes for a good eyepiece. In my telescope it provides 89x and performs great however, it is the first of the series I have purchased and have yet to use any of the others but I would look into the 18mm 82° as I hear it is great. It will be my next eyepiece for sure.

    I just pulled the trigger on the ES 82 degree 8.8mm. Looking to start replacing my X-Cel LX's. Nothing wrong with them, but having 82 degrees allows for more drift time in my dob. Besides, my wife won't let me order anything more expensive than an eyepiece right now and darn it all...I want to buy something!

    I'm going to see if I can get enough cash together for a 30 mm 82 degree 2" eyepiece.

    My 6.7 mm EP and 2x focal extender arrive tomorrow.

    ES has some great sales. I spent a pretty penny during their Christmas sale last year.

    I second that. During the Christmas sales I scored all of the 82 * EPs, except for the 24mm. Well, until now that is.

    Now the series is complete.
