Emailed pictures of the following:
Meade 4000 QX 30mm
Celestron E-Lux 40mm

I even sent a bonus picture, 2 different brands of 40mm Plossi.
The Celestron E-Lux is identical to the Orion Sirius except for the step in the barrel.






The current/newer Sirius plossl has the safety groove step as well now. i got mine in the Orion set only a bit over a month ago and it has it.

I recenty did a bunch of selling, which included both versions of 23 axiom, and a 40mm Optiluxe. Any photos I may still have on my card were shot at low res though, about 1.5 megapixel, might not be enough for your book (definitely not the 23 axiom pic as that was a group photo with a couple ultimas)

What I do have are 13-20-30 KK WSIII (you didn't mention them but someone else did)

I also have the following, 15mm and 20mm Meade QX, and a 36mm QX that suffered an accident, but if the glass does not have to be shown, It could pose in a side view.

I have 40mm 2" E-Lux, missing the rubber grip, and 40mm E-Lux plossl, which might make a good photo, along with a 25mm E-Lux plossl as well.

Also still have a 15mm GSO superview with the OPT branding.

Send a PM if interested, I still have a bunch of EPs.

A friend has the 15mm Antares w70, pewter colored version, and an older well worn in 30mm Superview.

Looking on my camera, I have 3 different "poses" of the 40mm optiluxe, shot at 1504x1000, as well as a grouping of KK flat top orthos with UO HD and Antares branding, same resolution, which is probably enough for a single EP, but too low for the group of orthos most likely. Everything on my HD is in limbo since my old MBP just crashed, but these are still on my camera card, so if you find yourself without a 40mm optiluxe pic, it might do in a pinch.

The others I mentioned I can photo at high res if needed.

Heres some pictures - not sure if they are of any use. Unfortunately when I checked my PC I had deleted loads because most were photographed for sale. As they sold through they have been deleted. I thought I might have kept the original pics (in fact was sure I did) but it seems I deleted the lot - sorry - heres what I do have though........

Mitch - Thanks also but just got a pic of the 120. How do you like the views through it so far?




I like the EP just fine. It is well corrected in my F/4 scope, a vastly wide FoV, stars are sharp to the edge (with Paracorr). The vastness of the FoV gives an interesting effect, the edge of the FoV "looks" farther away. This is not a distortion (such as field curvature) but simiar to a night in the desert with clear skies to the horizon. There, stars on the horizon look farther away than those at even only 20d above the horizon look--sort-of like a flattened dome effect.

The only thing that is a little wierd is that the every edge of the FoV shows some stray light--that is it goes bright rather than dark. This is on a scope with excellent stray light prevention measures. It is not really a problem as this edge is beyond my eye's ability to see while looking into the EP.
