10mm TeleVue Delos
Is the 10mm Delos a different beast than the 6mm? Did they fix the disc thingy on the bottom from falling off?
Should be nice when it arrives along with a brand new 5mm Vixen LVW. I know the prices of the 5mm LVW are much cheaper used, but I prefer to get eyepieces brand new now, which I just did for the 10mm Delos as well. If I think the 5mm Vixen LVW doesn't hold up to the 10mm TV Delos, I'll let go of the 5mm LVW and pick up another 6mm TV Delos , or a 4.5mm TV Delos !!!
A bunch of us are also going to do a shootout between the 10mm Pentax XW and 10mm TV Delos of mine when it arrives!
Looking forward to them arriving close to just after my birthday! (Dec/ 15th)
Cheers! It's off to work I go now! Time to help customers and stock some more shelves for Xmas!

I'm still holding on to my Delos 4.5 and Delos 6. My XW's and LVW left the stall in direct competition with my Leica ASPH. I need more sky time with the Delos to determine if they will stay or leave.
So far I've reduced my active eyepiece collection to a mere 55 members. That's progress from over 160 last year!

If it comes with the ring, should I remove it?

A bunch off us compared my 10 Delos and a 10 XW on the Trapezium. It was split 50/50 as to which eyepiece was easier to use as far as eye placement goes, but everyone, even the Pentax owners, thought the Delos had the better image. The six stars visible in my 12" looked tighter and were split nicely. The Pentax looked less sharp and contrasty in comparison. Just an observation on one target though.
