A CZJ question new
      #6041625 - 08/23/13 10:45 AM

Hey, does anyone know if CZJ (or an affiliated company) ever made an eyepiece/accessories box to house their late model 0.965"/M44 oculars...?

Short answer is yes - I think. But I don't have one.

Bill Rose posted a picture here a few years ago with his Zeiss collection in a nice wooden box. It had labels for all of the eyepieces so they could be placed in their proper spots. I have been looking for one of those boxes ever since, but I'm afraid I would have to go back to Europe to find one.

Cheers,

Ron

Levine:
I would wager a chocolate chip cookie that that's a custom box, not factory. He had the collection and someone laser engraved the ep position for him.

Hi Jim!

In the interim, I received an email from Paul Koczet in Europe.
Bill's box is CZJ original, from the 1980's.
Hard to come by, but they're out there.


I prefer my cookie soft, semi-sweet; chunks, not chips.
