Quote:Hi Timm,I appreciated your review of these eyepieces. It was well written and interesting.I think that the review could have been more informative, if the comparisons had been with other typically standard planetary eyepieces, however. In other words, a direct comparison between the SPL's and good orthos and plossls would have been more helpful to me. I am interested in how well the SPL's compare in contrast, light-scatter and on axis sharpness to TV Plossls, for example. It didn't really surprise me that the SPL's could perform better on the planets than the UWA's or the Nagler. Thank you again for your review!Clear Skies,
Quote:Nicely done. Really like how you used different parts of each one to make new versions. Would be worth it to buy an extra set just to make up the in-between sizes. BTW, have you noticed that they seem to be the exact same eyepieces sold by Smart Astronomy and Orion, but that theirs are only $100.00?
