    I have only one complete set (BCOs) and three sets (TV Plossls, Celestron X-Cel LX and Vixen SLVs) which are almost complete (missing 1-3 entries) and will stay that way. It is a balance between urge to complete sets and urge to sell stuff which I know I will never use. And most (even good) sets contain obvious weak links (like X-Cel LX 2.3mm) or EPs which is just really hard to use (like 4mm Orthos).

    I have 2 complete BCO sets, 1 complete TV Panoptic and 1 complete Delos sets, 1 complete KK Fujiyama Orthoscopic set, 2 almost complete Vixen NPL sets (lacking the 4mm . I am lacking the longer TV Plossls too, the 55 and 40mm.

    My daughter inherited my UO HD Orthoscopic set and the UO volcano tops and the UO Konigs.

    I used to have the Edmund Orthoscopics and I acquired the complete TV Nagler set on two separate occasions and divested.

    I think I have a completeness complex. Somehow it is insufficient to motivate me to get a 4mm Plossl though....

    I would not even qualify 4mm Plossl as an EP. It is a torture device!

    I'm proud of resisting my "completeness complex" AND my masochistic tendencies in that regard. I've vowed that if I ever buy a 4mm Plossl I'll look into Eyepiec-aholics Anonymous.

    However I did realize my signature was incomplete so I fixed it.
