    Default This is the final addition to my collection.. for real this time



    I know it was only a month ago that I posted the thread My eyepiece collection is now complete [again]
    Since then I have swapped the Panaview 26mm, 32mm and 38mm for the Baader Hyperion Aspherics 31mm and 36mm.
    The Panaviews were 70 degree fov and the Baaders are 72 degree fov these should compliment my 8" sct nicely.
    I hardly used the 26mm and so I did not see a need to fill that slot.
    Now I feel I have all my bases covered and all my e/p's are of the same make, this satisfies my ocd.
    I even purchased a Baader case to house the collection.
    Now for a cloud dispersal gun so I can do some astronomy.

    Scope = Celestron CPC800 8"sct. Sky-watcher Heritage 130p flex tube Dobsonian Binoculars = Helios Ultima 10x50 porro prism.
    Eyepieces = Baader Hyperion Aspheric 31mm and 36mm. Baader Hyperion 8mm, 13mm, 17mm, 21mm and 24mm.
    Diagonal = 2" Altair dielectric diagonal.

    How can you possibly say you have a complete eyepiece collection when not only do you have an empty slot, but all of your eyepieces are color-coded and you are missing violet. How can you scan the entire visible light spectrum without violet? That's like having only part of a rainbow. The unicorns are gonna come after you in your dreams, man...

    Seriously, that's some nice gear there. Congratulations.
