Quote:I have been trying to round out my eps both for my 4 inch refractor and 16 inch f/4.5 reflector.My original plan was to purchase a used 12mm nagler, I did post a wanted add in the s and s ep forum, but doubt Ill find one for my pricee constraint of 200 dollars, so........got to looking at th ES 11mm 82* and 6.7mm 82* eps, both fit within my 200 dollar budget, minus shipping, and would fill two holes medium, and high power.So has anyone else have any experience with these two eps??It says theyre both temporarily out of stock, do I just go ahead and order and wait? not sure how long itll take to get them in stock?

Quote:I had the ES 11 82 and the Nagler 12 Type 2 at the same time. For me, the Nagler has better edge correction and the edge is easier to see. I found it more difficult to position my eye and/or turn my head to see the field stop in the ES 11, kind of defeating the point of the 82 degree field. I found the ES and Nagler to be similarly sharp on axis. The moon's limb showed more lateral color (wider band) near the field edge in the ES than the Nagler. That really wasn't much of a problem as I prefer my critical viewing to remain on axis.

"Considered as a collector of rare and precious things, the amateur astronomer has a great advantage over amateurs in other fields ... the amateur astronomer has access at all times to the original objects of his study; the masterworks of the heavens belong to him as much as to the great observatories of the world. And there is no privilege like that of being allowed to stand in the presence of the original." --Robert Burnham Jr, Burnham's Celestial Handbook

(No bashing Astronomics intended here; they have to get through their backorder log just like every other vendor).But I thought I'd try an experiment.I think I might get on the wait list for an Astro-Physics scope and see which comes first, the telescope or the ES eyepieces.Any predictions?
