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.





Take the caps off and let those smoothies show!!!!

I've got a few of those. I would like to find one of those turrets some day.

Nice Jim,
I have never seen a Parks collection, I guess I should have, but no one has posted any photos.

Thanks!
Jaimo!

"I have never seen a Parks collection"

Jaimo:

Neither have I seen a collection posted on this forum or others. These endless collections of Z1's, Z2's, Pentax's, etc. get old . Time for some new glass.

Jim

Hey Mark, how did you do those nice numerals? I could sure use those for my Siebert EP's.

Great looking set, Mark. Different, distinctive. Harry S. should use that photo on his website.

They are vinyl drafting numbers, you can get them at Hobby Lobby (look in the section with all the rulers and drafting supplies) if you have one of those near. They come in a sheet, you can get different sizes. Wipe the area you want to put them on with some alcohol, gently apply them, then nudge them into perfect position and finally press down hard on them to set them in place. Let them set up for a day and they will stick firmly, but you can peel them off if need be. I couldn't see Harry's stamped numbers in the dark, this makes it easy to pick the right one out of the bunch.

Sweet! Thanks Mark. The markings on the Monocentrics are even harder to see since they're in the plastic.

I went through this entire thread, and not a single family portrait of Celestron (Circle-V) Silvertops.

Not complete (shown are 45, 36, 26, 15, 10, 7.5), but I'm working on it.

The 30mm is one of the rarer ones, right? Is that the only one missing?

My understanding is that the 30mm was made in Taiwan. Also missing from this lineup are the 22mm and 17mm (I think).
