Quote:Is the ER extremely tight for the 7.4mm?
Quote:David E very nice Meade set! I have the 4.7mm + 8.8mm UWA and i really like them!How do the UWA 4.7mm and 6.7mm compare to each other?Little easier to view thru the 6.7mm? I find the 4.7mm is not that hard to look thru compared to some other eyepieces i had!
Quote:Tristan, nice collection the 31mm looks the size of a football
