Very nicely done. I like that it's easy to search either by manufacturer or type of item. Easy to navigate. The only issue is that I have to hit the compatiblility view button a few times.

Congrats on the make-over!

fwiw the pages don't render too well on an ipad (safari and chrome) - top banner doesn't scale to fit screen width, and the rest of the page follows along.

Not up yet. Too many things on our plates all at once to get that in from the git-go, but it will come.

They are actually all different. There are different adapter plates for the different filters.

My first pass through and I didn't see any of the /50 /100 etc. differences, I think I had a caching or paging issue on my end ... but now everything is displaying correctly.

Thanks Mike, sorry about false alarm :o

I didn't notice it either, so no need to apologize. Since all the pics are the same it is easy to miss the minor differences.

I'm sorely missing the eyepiece calculator at the bottom of each eyepiece page. Field of view especially...
