    Default Now have all the ES 68° & 82° eyepieces!!



    I was on Agena's site last night and was looking at the eyepieces. I had all the 68° eyepieces except for the 28mm. So I figured what the ____, why not get the 28mm 68° eyepiece, it's on sale, and finish the collection. Ordered it last night and they shipped it today and I'll have it by Tuesday. Gotta love Agena's fast shipping!! Manish and crew are the tops! Now lets see, that 3" 30mm monster looks inviting, naw I don't need that, yes I do, no I don't, I don't, I don't!!!!!! I really don't!!!!!!!!!!!

    If I could afford it I would buy it just as a conversation piece!!!

    Well you must have gotten that 3.7" focuser for a reason! How else are you going to check that the view is not cutoff??

    Congratulations on finishing your 68º EP collection, Johnny!

    I really like the ES's 68º EPs. They are very comfortable for extended viewing. Although I love my 82s tremendously, sometimes it feels like extra work to "peek around the corner" to get the full FOV—the trade-off for having that portal-in-a-spaceship feeling. The 68s, on the other hand, feel plenty wide and allow one to "take it all in" with little effort.
