very nice set indeed!
I would not part ways with those either!
I had a meade 3000 40mm which stacked up real well vs the 40mm NJ TV. I was on the brink of picking up the 40mm 4000 smothie the one you have too. I was going to do a comparison between the three, but the seller pulled out of the deal last second???
I sold the 3000 and kept the TV but both eyepieces were top notch and im sure the 4000 smoothie is in there league!
"I like the "smooth" asthetic! especially the groove-less barrels."
Scott, i hear you, no extra plastic, no spoiler added, no extra rubber, no plastic chrome, no exsessive girth, no graffiti graphics!
Now people cover up everything in plastic like how some families covered up the chestafils (sofa's)!
Even in the automotive sector!!
I went to the auto show last year and almost every front hood i open up i did not see the engine it was all covered up! Very dissapointed with this new trend!
I used to be impressed by how engine's looked but not no more!
Anyways i was very impressed when i recieved the 55mm TV smoothie how it is so simplistic astheticly yet so impressive looking!
