    Default Vixen Plossl Eyepieces on Sale



    Just FYI:

    I happened to look at Agena Astro this morning (January 7, 2017) and they have their Vixen NPL eyepieces on sale. All of the ones that normally sell for $49.95 are priced at $39.95, if I remember correctly. The longer focal lengths, which normally sell for more than $50 are also priced down, but I do not remember how much.

    If I had any in the string missing that I want to buy, I would hop on this, but I have them already. These are really nice Symetrical-Plossles.

    Thanks, Craig! I was thinking in terms of the price AgenaAstro sells these eyepieces for on their site, which shows $US.

    For me personally, I am adversely sensitive to a yellowish cast in an eyepiece...have no idea why. With that said, the Vixen are the best general purpose four element eyepieces I have found that I can use and enjoy, since their tone is pretty much neutral. I use small scopes a lot and keeping the number of air glass interfaces at four seems to be a help, with the right coatings on them. The literature states they have a 50 deg AFOV, but it looks a bit wider than that, however I could be wrong. I have not actually performed any tests on them.

    If you do buy any of them, I hope you have as much success with them as I am having.
