Wow...great picture Paul :bow: btw, the original image I suggested for the cover is below. Spent a lot of time in Photoshop getting those eye lenses removed and the astro-pics inserted.


Wow! :bow: The best Eyepiece Book Cover that never was (maybe next edition).

EP's owned - currently 75 (listed at the blog and pics of them splashed all over here), the only ones that left were plossls from the kit, a couple of X-cels, and a Pentax XW 7mm (traded for a Delos 6mm).

Best,
