End of an era?

Still - chin up because you know that lots of people will sell as soon as something new comes along.

Now I'm sorry for having sold my 6mm. Frankly it was a very difficult eyepiece to use, but you couldn't complain about the views.
Yes, the short focal length Abbes are not the friendliest oculars. I have the 6mm and will never let it go, but I have never been tempted to get the 4mm or 5mm. But when I want to push my scope, the 6mm gives sharp views.
I had hoped to get the 18mm, but that seems to have been the first one to go out of stock. I'm guessing that it was a less-popular focal length and fewer were produced. Oh, well, I ordered a Televue 20mm Plossl instead.

I just ordered and successfully received the 25mm and 12.5mm volcano tops from UO. They do still have a few left, so get 'em while you can!

Its a real shame that future scope fans wont have orthos available apart from the BCOs.

I'm very sad indeed about the loss of these eyepieces.
