Spoke to Sheldon Faworski at Explore Scientific today.
This EP will hit the shelves in 60 days. Many are already spoken for, but he tells me there is nothing lost by putting your name in!
This is just the first batch; more to follow.

Thanks John, I put in a pre-order a couple of months ago. No sense waiting on the edge of my seat :-)

I don't think that counts if the main site doesn't agree with it.

There's one way to find out. Order it off of the ES store. They can't charge your card until it ships. If they charge, it'll mean it's shipping.

Has anyone received one yet, or received a due date?

P.S. Don't see anyting about the 5mm 100 AFOV ES anymore. Are they still developing that one or is it dead?

Am I missing anything by saying the 25mm 100 degree ES could very well replace the Nagler 26mm T5 and the 31mm T5, assuming the scope, mount and focuser could handle the weight?

Yes, probably.

The 25ES100 should (SHOULD) have the same FoV as the 31NT5 and for those of use who are older with smaller eye pupils and use faster F/ratios the 25ES100 should give better background blacks and utilize a bit more of the aperture.

The 31NT4 delivers a 7.75mm exit pupil in a F/4 scope
whereas the 25ES100 delivers a 6.25mm exit pupil.
Both deliver the same true ToV, one with a bit more magnification. But magnification is not the important property, exit pupil is.

So, you get the magnification of the 26NT5 with the FoV of the 31NT5.

I'm guessing it will weight just about what a 31NT5 weights (which coincidentally is equal to the 21E)

I'm told that a shipment of the 9mm 120 is due to arrive within a couple of weeks, and that some 25mm 100 eyepieces may be in that shipment.

I'm out of the big rush to be put on the ES 100 25 waiting list. Since last January when this thread started, I've bought an XO 5.1, an XO 2.5 and an XW 3.5, among other less extravagant acquisitions, such as a second Brandon 12mm. So I believe my Big Eyepiece Expenditure Mojo has been squandered for the indeterminate future. I'll have to make do with my ES 82 30mm for a low-power wide field.

eh
Mike

I'd say it's likely to be a long wait.
