I am not affiliated with Surplus Shed in any way. Just a happy customer.

I noticed they had a 4 inch f6ish coated achromat (in a cell) for about $170. Forty percent off of that is a pretty nice deal.

Last 80mm x 700 I got hold of was excellent. $29, all it has to do is show me anything!

Did a bench test with eyepiece for daytime use, and just fine. Likely cheaper than their 90....

Only once have I received a real dog optic from SS in many years of purchases. Fortunately it wasn't a high-dollar item. All of the surplus Asian objectives I've purchased have been very good, as are the recent Jaegers objectives. They are as good as the ones I purchased directly from Jaegers in the old days.
It may take six months or more for an item to return to stock, so don't be too disappointed if you have to wait. Those who check the website regulary or are members of the SS VIP club will always get first crack at the new stuff and the best stuff.
If you think of a surplus store as some kind of Walmart equivalent, with regular incoming stock, you will probably be disappointed.

This morning, being brave/hopeful, ordered a Jaegers 6" f/10 objective for $185...the order went through, so hopefully they still had some in the shop.....because otherwise I just paid $6 to get a green LED shipped.....
