A lot of EP lines do color coding for different focal lengths, but I really like the look of the TMB Supermonos. Very nice looking. Helps that they are pricey and collectible too and I'm sure the views are great!

Hey, this is a DIY hobby too; you can always paint your Naglers hot pink, your ES's Flourescent Green, and replace all those red LED's with a black light!! :lol:

I'll fess up. When I bought my 8" f/4 Parks I thought these were pretty slick looking. Still a decent plossl for everyday use.

That is one ugly eyepiece. Looks more like Long John Silver's peg leg.

Sometimes the uglier the better. While they are both ugly the one on the left can still show you a good time. :grin:

Crazy thread here. Ever find yourself liking or buying an eyepiece (or an entire line of EP's) just because you like the way they look?

Let's be honest here, EP lust gets the best of many of us.


No, not me :).

Oh my goodness - those Meades are my dream set! Just exactly the set I could not afford when young. GW
