Nice haul. Estate sales are an unfortunate thing...but from the looks of it, who ever it was went happy. If I'm gonna go, I hope it's leavin a stash like that.

Looks good... but for future reference, the expression is "mother lode", as in mining.

Nice grab for the price you paid !!!

Once Jim Barnett sees this his eyepieces will need about ten pages to fill.

I may be selling them once I get everything sorted out and figure out what I want to keep. They are nice eyepieces from everything I have read.
My goal is to sell enough to buy the new Denk BINOTRON-27 Super System for SCTs

Those Konigs are somewhat rare, aren't they? And nice Pelican with padded dividers housing all those beautiful Lantanum Superwides.
