A tough day for me. I need to sell most of my astronomy equipment. The exigencies of life, including financial obligations and a not yet resolved health scare (ticker isn't ticking correctly anymore), have caught up with me. It is time for me to find my "friends" new homes. Most of this equipment has been lovingly used but is still in almost new condition. Where this is not the case, I will do my best to note every flaw. I have always considered it an honor to be part of the amateur astronomy community, and I will do whatever I can to guarantee your satisfaction.

I must put up my set of Ethos eyepieces for sale. I cobbled together this collection over the last couple years. Unfortunately, I was unable to give them much use. Each is in practically brand new condition. I have never touched their glass. All are excellent performers. I used them primarily in my Obsession 12.5" and two TeleVue refractors. They are beautifully housed in a PelicanAir 1555 pluck foam case that I shaped to hold each eyepiece horizontally. This was my dream eyepiece set, and I have never been disappointed for a single moment.

The package includes the following:

PelicanAir 1555 pluck foam case
Complete Ethos set: 21mm, 17mm, 13mm, 10mm, 8mm, 6mm, 4.7mm, and 3.7mm
Will include a TeleVue 2" Everbrite 99% star diagonal for $100 (it is older than the Ethos, is in very good condition, but the mirror needs a simple cleaning)

I have ten pictures of the case and eyepieces, but I'm not so hot with computers. It seems that my photo sizes were all too big to be uploaded. If you are interested in this package, please give me an email address, and I'll send you the pictures I took yesterday.

Because my situation is what it is, I'm only asking $4500 for it all. I have no doubt that shipping this case would be simple. But it is a bit heavy...guessing about 15 lbs. Buyer pays shipping. But there is good news: I'm in Las Vegas. Come to Sin City and pick up this dream eyepiece set.

Please contact me by message. I'll be happy to give you my phone number upon request and will answer any questions you may have.
