    Default Apologies for the cloud cover in the KC area - new eyepieces



    Sorry for all the clouds, but I'm doin' the happy dance over here. Picked up three quality eyepieces from a popular astronomy classifieds section. Just received them today: Televue Panoptic 15mm and 19mm, plus a Televue 11mm Plossl. I have a number of good, older plossls and orthos, but the panoptics are my first "modern" oculars. Will be used mostly in a 8" f/6 dob and a 127mm Achro refractor. Just had to tell someone that understood. Ha!

    Congrats on your new premium eyepieces. I wondered why it was partially clear here yesterday

    Congrats on the TeleVue's - they are the dream are they not?

    The current sale is very tempting, but alas, and perhaps for the better right now - I have other fiscal concerns!
