I have a 6.7mm on order but I've already been waiting for 2 months...




5 months and counting for me.

I've had the 82° 4.7mm, 6.7mm and 8.8mm on order from Astronomics since early November. (No bashing Astronomics intended here; they have to get through their backorder log just like every other vendor).

But I thought I'd try an experiment.

I think I might get on the wait list for an Astro-Physics scope and see which comes first, the telescope or the ES eyepieces.

Any predictions?

an ES 6.7 and 11mm 82 degree both just came up on astromart at list price. At this point I didn't even care, I just want the darn thing. I managed to jump on the 6.7.

Guess now that my 82 degree collection is complete I'll start working on the 100 degrees. Just need to win the lotto first.

The 6.7mm is one of my favorites, especially for lunar observing with my 80mm scope.

If I have to wait 5 months for my ES82s... Well I just don't want to miss seeing ISONS this fall.

Glad to hear that I am not the only one waiting for the ES eyepieces... It has been almost four months for me. I just did the online chat thing with someone at the ES website, here is what I was told:

We are starting to receive some our shipment from our factory. We do apologize for the wait. We are hoping to begin restocking every one with in about 30 days. We have been getting some of our product and once we recieve it, it wil pass through our Quality Control department and we will start shipping them out to our vendors


Guess I will check again in a month! :/

none, yet, lol......of course not much special to ask for ..a motley lot of scopes and used eps.
Honestly , minus the knight Owl eps Ive never bought anything new, least wise none I still have, there was a plossl, but I let it go with a donation scope project.
