    Hello Dean,

    there might be 44 EPs on astronomy service, one more is crying for a better rubber eyeguard, and one more will be coming.
    Two other EPs will be leaving.
    A few EPs are just collectibles, you know the nostalgy.
    Some other EPs are for the microscopes, or dual purpose.

    When you start your EP thread as you have announced, let me know.

    Best,

    JG

    Thanks JG. My thread is up, but I have more to add to it... How many eyepieces do you own, and why?
