Now that my 9mm ES100 has had first light, the weather is good. If it starts to get too dry around here, I guess I just have to buy a 20mm ES100. It's cheaper than irrigation!


Clear skies!

Doesn't seem to work here in southern California. Only 5 inches of rain this year , and eyepiece sales are brisk. Fire season started 6 months early.

Ouch. We got 1.5" of rain in the days after I received the 9mm ES100... But it was much needed rain, so no complaints from here.

Upon close inspection of the 20mm ES 100, I noticed that there is a small RIP in the rubber eyecup. Not a huge dealbreaker, but it is there and I wasn't informed about it. I bought it used. The seller has agreed to send me a new one, so I wll see if I get one sent to me.

The eyepiece is HUGE !!! Feels like quite the weight in your hand.

Oh yes it does! Friday night at Big Bear was "clouded" out by smoke from the Powerhouse fire last weekend. 120 miles away...

You know, don't you, that new astronomy equipment emits moistons that cause a condensation of clouds around the moiston particles?
Only the Full Moon is capable of burning through the moistons and giving clear skies.
You have to admit, it explains a lot, eh?

Congrats on the new EP, Mark! The ES100 14mm eyepiece that I bought used had a rip in the rubber eyecup as well. Since the warranty is transferable to subsequent owners I was able to email ES and get them to mail me a new rubber eyecup. It took several weeks and a few email exchanges before I was able to receive the replacement, but all was made right in the end, so I'm not complaining. I really like ES's warranty policy.
