Quote:What, no pics of your eyepiece cup collection????
Quote: I, at one time, had an extensive eyepiece cap collection. However, over time, I have come to the conclusion that eyepiece cups have only one purpose: To do everything they can to NOT be put on an eyepiece.
Quote:I must have eyecaps on the eyecups. Maryland is a dewy land.Mike
Quote:I also have a big problem with my eyepieces fogging up. I use one of those cheapy personal fans with soft foam blades to blow air over my eyepiece as I observe. It is a cute little fan that I keep on a lanyard around my neck.---------------------John

Quote:Just came not the best packing;;
Quote:So what is the story here? Are they Meade "seconds"? Used? Maybe they just saved costs by not putting the eyepiece/diagonal into separate pretty boxes and were able to pass those savings on this way....As long as they look new and perform, no problem.
