"I have never seen a Parks collection"

Jaimo:

Neither have I seen a collection posted on this forum or others. These endless collections of Z1's, Z2's, Pentax's, etc. get old :lol:. Time for some new glass.

Hey Mark, how did you do those nice numerals? I could sure use those for my Siebert EP's.

Great looking set, Mark. Different, distinctive. Harry S. should use that photo on his website.

They are vinyl drafting numbers, you can get them at Hobby Lobby (look in the section with all the rulers and drafting supplies) if you have one of those near. They come in a sheet, you can get different sizes. Wipe the area you want to put them on with some alcohol, gently apply them, then nudge them into perfect position and finally press down hard on them to set them in place. Let them set up for a day and they will stick firmly, but you can peel them off if need be. I couldn't see Harry's stamped numbers in the dark, this makes it easy to pick the right one out of the bunch.

Great looking set, Mark. Different, distinctive. Harry S. should use that photo on his website.


Thanks Edward, good luck on the auction tonight!

Sweet! Thanks Mark. The markings on the Monocentrics are even harder to see since they're in the plastic.

I went through this entire thread, and not a single family portrait of Celestron (Circle-V) Silvertops.

Not complete (shown are 45, 36, 26, 15, 10, 7.5), but I'm working on it.

The 30mm is one of the rarer ones, right? Is that the only one missing?

My understanding is that the 30mm was made in Taiwan. Also missing from this lineup are the 22mm and 17mm (I think).

Something I copied from a post:

Celestron Silvertops
fl AFOV fieldstop
7.5mm 46d 6mm
10mm 46d 7mm
15mm 46d 11mm
17mm 47d 14mm
22mm 48d 17mm
26mm 49d 20mm
30mm 50d 28mm
36mm 35d 22mm
45mm 33d 25mm
50mm 43d 37mm (2")

I did see a 6.3mm version listed in a post as well as a 20mm listed in a post or maybe an ad?

Hi Tammy,

Are you aware of anywhere in the USA that these are available? I've googled and eBayed for the past hour without a single good lead.

I can confirm the 30mm is made in Japan, but not Vixen.
