He states "I don’t know much about refractors" but has removed the lenses for the photo. No wonder there are clamshell chips all around the lens. Yeah, I am just REALLY gonna jump on this one knowing that the glass has been properly indexed and reinstalled... :roflmao:

Wow, I'm really sarcastic on this one, aren't I? :question:

That chip looked twice as big as mine. And it does interfere with the view. No direct effect on sharpness or focus, but it introduces annoying little reflections and flashes....
Sheesh.
