    Default Zeiss astronomical Ortho f=40mm on eBay



    Hello all,

    I just came across a seldom found long focus Carl Zeiss Jena orthoscopic eyepiece for the astronomy telescopes:
    https://www.ebay.de/itm/Zeiss-Jena-A...UAAOSwPAxZ9V-P
    The ortho has a cross hair, but it can be eventually removed.

    Happy shopping,

    JG

    I will be honest, being a AP'er more than a viewer.
    My first thoughts are...OMG What price? For an eyepiece!!!
    But then I sat back and thought, yeah, and this is from a guy who bought a Astrodon 1.25" 3nm Ha filter!! lol.

    Happy shopping my fellow astronomers

    Hello Dave,

    I have bought just the Astrodon 1.25" 5nm OIII filter, cheaper than the 3nm one.

    I agree, it is quite a lot of money for an ortho, even if it looks like an observatory grade eyepiece.

    On the other hand, people pay for the discontinued ZEISS West S-PL and E-PL f=25mm eyepieces between
    500 USD and 1.500 USD, that case with the 1.500 USD final bid has happened only in onece in auction.
    And with the Zeiss E-Pl you go the risk that the EP comes from the Singapur or other Zeiss manufacturing in China.

    So, here we are, the visual people,
