    well played. let us know how they compare to the 82's. Looking to get a few 82s and won't need much coaxing to move up to the 100's .....though the waiting time to amass extra cash will be painful.

    Congrats. Going to be some good views with those. I have a 2 inch ES 70 degree in 25mm. Would like to get a 2 inch in the 10 mm range so I don't have to switch back to 1.25 all the time.

    Thanks guys, got the set of 3 from BH Photo at a great price. Not cheap, but certainly a lot less than getting the 3 separately. I would love to see how that 5.5mm looks on some planetary. Hoping to get out for some viewing Wednesday night, if there are clear skies. Looks possible.
    In the meantime my secondary from Antares optics arrived. 3.5" 1/30pv. Shipping it off to Teeter Telescopes tomorrow.
