Quote:we also running a discussion in Germany about the new eyepieces and they brough up the Idea of a König II modell, which offers a wider field of around 55° and a higher eyerelief then the ortho.In conjunction we also discussing a real comacorrected barlowlens on top of the excisting TMB barlow for all those owning a newtonian telescope.The Konig is also a 4 element eyepiece and a cool idea, as i think.
Quote:The König II is stated to be superior to the Zeiss Abbe, read this articlehttp://www.brayebrookobservatory.org/BrayObsWebSite/BOOKS/EVOLUTIONofEYEPIECES.pdf

"Life is too short to miss the beauty of heavens."
“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
