Earlier this month I sold one of my two Swift 838's to another CN member, I leave it up to them to post about the scope, or not, as they see fit. But as part of the deal, I accepted this little item in partial trade, thanks to the buyer's generosity and willingness to part with it. A Swift Herschel wedge. I have never seen one in person before so this was a treat. The condition is excellent, plus it's in the original box. It can't be used without proper ND filtration and in any event is never going to replace my modern Lunt wedge but it's a nice piece of Swift kit to have.
Christmas came a tad early for me this year, Ho! Ho! Ho!
