Now that all is said and done, just what are you going to do with that screw?
I've owned many of the 2" skirted eyepieces, and have yet to use the screw.
Just be sure to put it in a place where you won't lose it, ok? -

Just imagine how that would make the black upper tube of a Barlow look:-(

The nice thing about this particular set I just got is that they were factory sealed for the past 30 years so no opportunity for dust to make its way in.
New old stock of a classic is a beautiful thing whenever you come upon it!
Yes it is! Two out of these four I was lucky enough to view first light thru. More than likely manufactured between 1988 and 1991 according to some of my old Meade catalogues.

tried one and loved the views so much that i ended up getting a full set of these beautiful eye pieces.I am not a collector but user so these eye pieces will be used every time. 14mm has seen the most use and barrel shows it signs,but optics are nice and clean,where i was lucky to get 6.7mm brand new!
Stunning eye pieces and wows me every time i look through them.
