“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
Quote:On the other hand, perhaps folks dissing the box buyer are *not* folks from whom to buy used eyepieces. I mean, if you can't even manage to keep the original packaging together with the item, how well taken care of are the eyepieces likely to be? - Jim

Quote:Agree. I kept all boxes of my EP including the solid ES 100° and 30mm 82° boxes. When I will sell those ep, and it will happen one day, it will be handy to have those boxes to ship them safely.--------------------******André

Quote:I think the interesting thing about RGO box going for $45 is, with a bit of patience, one could find the actual eyepiece with box for maybe $20-$30 more. So the box is worth more than the eyepiece.
