2014 Buyer's Guide to Eyepieces
      #6616344 - 07/04/14 12:31 PM Attachment (820 downloads)

Here it is for Summer 2014.
Prices are all updated, new models and brands added, discontinued eyepieces deleted.
Please send me a private message if I have left out something or if you have information about eyepieces that can fill in missing fields.

As usual, fill in your telescope's focal length and f/ratio in the top of the column boxes labeled in red, and hit enter, and it will populate all the other fields. If you have multiple scopes, just change the figure any time you wish to see figures for a different scope.

Thanks, Don! This is such a superb tool - and must represent a lot of time and effort. Great reference.

Happy 4th,

Jon

I did leave some eyepieces out on purpose:
--some photographic-only eyepieces that are unlikely to be visually used
--illuminated reticle, guiding eyepieces.
--some eyepieces long discontinued with a few remnants available for sale from selected vendors.
--0.965" eyepieces
--eyepieces known to have plastic lenses
--eyepieces that ONLY come with scopes (in the box)
--really cheap (<$10) eyepieces sold on eBay.
--Ramsden, Huygens, and a few others not really worthy of consideration unless you have an f/25+ refractor on a wooden pole mount
--microscope eyepieces (you COULD machine an adapter, but why bother?)

This is wonderful! Thanks, Don. As a numbers junkie, this gives me the opportunity to waste a day or two looking at trends, etc. It converted perfectly to my non-XL SS app as well.

Thanks Don. Those two pair of BCO I bought from you some time ago are doing wonderfully . You ought to honestly write a book on eyepieces, the history, the present, the future, how, why and what etc, if even just in ebooks.
