I actually emailed them and they got back relatively quickly and told me mine also shipped Monday and should be here by Friday. unfortunately The RGB filters still haven't shipped. Bob

I ordered mine on the 24th and it showed up this evening. I am going to need a bigger counter weight for my 8" LX90. I knew the 24mm UWA was massive but it had been a while since actually holding one. As I live in the mountains of Utah I am hoping this brings lots of snow at least for the next week as it is approaching the weekend and I need my 4 days on the slopes but come the following weekend I hope it clears up enough to head out into the desert for some looking up time with my new toys.

Ordered mine late on the 25th, sent an email this morning and received a tracking number within an hour. It actually shipped yesterday, the 30th. Not the fastest shipping, but a 2" dielectric diagonal plus the UWA for $168 including shipping is certainly worth a short wait. Cheaper than buying used...

As near as I can tell mine hasn't shipped yet. My filters and spotting scope are on their way, but I had to rattle their cage to find that out. I'll check on my eyepiece tomorrow. This should make a fine addition to my Lightbridge 16.

Pure speculation - Looks like some guy on AM (NOT me) stocked up on 2 or 3 of these deals and will pass on some *slight* savings to you...

Talk about lucky, caved in last night and ordered. Still got it for 159$. Would've been kicking myself pretty hard had I decided to wait till today.

Heh, heh, I just saw that ad in the CN Classifieds. I thought that it was interesting that the seller has zero CN posts. Kinda makes ya' wonder. It's neat to see what my eyepiece is gonna look like.

Mine is out for delivery! No, wait ... it's been delivered. The package will be waiting for me when I get home!

Now to think up reasons why I really needed this eyepiece and the diagonal ... for the wife.

Well, there's always the discount. That's the reason she usually gives me!
