It is SO nice to finally see here on Cloudy Nights

a) the Brandons finally get there due respect, and

b) the Brandons mentioned without someone immediately derailing the thread with some ridiculous unfounded disbelief and mockery.

They are excellent premium orthoscopic eyepieces with extremely high polish only available in very few other eyepieces costing much more, and you can see the results optically.

I agree. I sent off asking for a matched pair of 16mm to give them a try in my MarkV.

I have two sets of Brandon's and use the Vernonscope binoviewer. They really are something special in my TEC 140, 6" MCT or C14 Edge.

Yes especially now that Don has semi-retired after selling the Brandon business. Look forward to seeing him at NEAF!
