This partial set marks the end of the Celestron/Vixen eyepieces. Probably sold new in the late 1990's. These have original Vixen markings that were obscured by a semi-permanent Celestron sticker. From left to right, a 25mm Vixen Ortho, a 12.5mm Vixen Ortho, and 26mm Vixen Plossl. Each has the Vixen green tinted AR coatings.

Cheers!




Ok, those stickers really are a weird move!

Does the 40mm look something like this?




Nope, but I have a 2" 25mm matching your 40mm Celestron.

Okay, you forced me to read this whole thread (again). A little over 2 years ago I posted a pic of my 7 Meade RGs here. Now, with all 10 (once again), here is the whole set:

I have also gathered a small group of 0.96" Celestrons, my 9mm ortho didn't make the shot.



Jaimo!

Here an update of my Televue Widefield series. I replaced the 40mm with grip by the smoothies version some years ago. Not new but optically in good shape.

Orthostars. Minty, cheap and in one fell swoop. I need 2 more. Pictured on the box they came in on a "lucky" CL buy.

Wow - this thread has been around a while.

I showed my CZJ orthos back on the second page and here is my collection of A-P Super Planetaries. These, along with my CZJ and ZAO-II sets, cover all my planetary needs.

Cheers,

Ron

Those are gorgeous! FWIW, production of the AP SPL's stopped because Roland would only accept eyepieces with glass so perfect (lack of bubbles, etc.) that it was not financially practical for Valery D to produce them. You have some real gems there!
