Quote:Now that my 9mm ES100 has had first light, the weather is good. If it starts to get too dry around here, I guess I just have to buy a 20mm ES100. It's cheaper than irrigation! Clear skies!Thomas, Denmark
Quote: Doesn't seem to work here in southern California. Only 5 inches of rain this year , and eyepiece sales are brisk. Fire season started 6 months early.

Quote:Upon close inspection of the 20mm ES 100, I noticed that there is a small RIP in the rubber eyecup. Not a huge dealbreaker, but it is there and I wasn't informed about it. I bought it used. The seller has agreed to send me a new one, so I wll see if I get one sent to me.
Clear skies, Scott my scopes: a few refractors (50-102mm), 2 Newts (4.5-12"), and an 8" SCT
Quote:Thanks Scott !
I got a PM from Russ @ ES and he is going to send me a brand NEW replacement eyecup for my 20mm ES 100.
THAT'S WHAT I CALL CUSTOMER SERVICE.
I didn't even have to ask.....he saw this thread and PM'd me.
