One of my all-time faves for oculars are the fully coated and multicoated Silvertop line by Vixen. They are well above par plossls that do excellent resolution work in all types of telescopes. Globular clusters, galaxies, planetary and other nebulae, and definitely the planets and Moon are wonderful targets for these particular eyepieces.
If the images are bad in your scope, it will not be the fault of these oculars.

All are 1.25-inch format. These are from right around 1989-1991 when they were multicoated. I believe right around 1993 is when these disappeared never to return and the bold, painted-on "V" appears on the center of the satin body. Optically, these resolve every bit as finely as the fully coated Silvertops. However, these do not have extraneous glare/ghosting near bright objects like Jupiter, Saturn, Sirius, Alberio, Castor, ect.

1) 36mm with both original caps. Hard to find; especially with the top cap. Body and barrel are solid excellent. Caps and wording are very excellent. Optics are very excellent, very near perfect mint. ULTRA clean and no dusties! $88.00 sold

2) 7.5mm with both original caps. Again, hard to find the top caps on these as they crack easily if dry. Barrel is excellent, body and wording very excellent and optics very excellent with no issues to report and no dust. Fantastic to use on the planets! $64.00

3) 2x barlow with original set screw, original top cap and aftermarket bottom cap (not shown). These were originally "deluxe" barlows back in the day. Upper body is very excellent, chrome waist excellent, and lower body excellent. Optics are excellent, very close to very excellent with no issues to report. NO cleaning needed! $54.00 sold

Prices don't include shipping. Happy to ship to anyone on the planet.
