    Default Added another "Halloween" Plossl to the case



    The first upgrade to my first real scope back in the 90's, was three 1.25" Celestron "Halloween" Plossls. I ordered a 7.5mm, a 12.5mm, and a 20mm, along with a moon filter, and a Celestron 2x barlow, from a little shop named "Rex's Astro Stuff" (No clue if they are still in business or not). These pieces have remained with me over the years, because simply put, they are versatile, and, they perform great. Last weekend, I spied a 26mm on another site's classifieds, and, decided to purchase it. It came in today, and, aside from the missing original box, it looks brand new! It's amazing, how something so minor, can make you feel like a kid with a new toy again. Looking forward to giving it a first light soon!
