Baader Q-Series Orthos / Plossl / Barlow / Turret
      #5626423 - 01/16/13 03:42 PM Attachment (25 downloads)

We just received our rather large shipment of Baader's new Q-Series Eyepiece Set consisting of 3 Ortho eyepieces, 1 Plossl eyepiece, 1 Barlow, 1 Turret and a Storage Box. These items are also available individually and can all be seen at this link on our website.

These are in stock and ready to ship within 24 hours! And as always, you get FREE US shipping and FREE bolt cases for every eyepiece from Agena.

Kind regards,

Thanks Manish, got mine in yesterday afternoon. Tried them out last night and can say the eyepieces and barlow are very good optically. Have to work a bit on getting the turret and my scope to "like each other" but seems like it'll do fine.

One thing I'd like to give a heads up on. When they arrived, due to how Baader is packaging them, the eyepiece barrels were scratched by the turret setscrews. If possible, you might want to consider checking and snugging everything down when boxing it up.

This isn't a deal breaker and I won't be returning mine as I'm happy with them, just an observation. Thanks again.

Thanks for your feedback and understanding Steve.

>>you might want to consider checking and snugging everything down

We've already done that for every single item in every set we've received from Baader. If any items came lose in your box, we apologize. Unfortunately, as you have already pointed out, most eyepieces will display a nick or two from the setscrews because of how Baader has packaged this to begin with. We've also listed this caveat on the item page on our website.

Kind regards,
Manish
