Hello Kerry
As of right now no I don't have them. However I think you may want to check with Williams Optics. They might have one for the refractors. I think!

Thanks!

check with Williams Optics.



Thanks Dale, I'll check.

BTW, a little of topic, but.....I noticed you are carrying a 2 in. ED barlow. Have you used it or done a comparison. I have the other 2 in. barlow you carried, bought it from you a year ago I think.

Thanks. :)

Hello Kerry
Yes actually I did do a comparison. I've had it out on 2 separate occasions and I think it shows a tad bit more contrast with the ED. Not huge but just a bit. I also thing they are identical as far as image sharpness but I'd like better seeing conditions to further test these two. I noticed on Saturn looking at the Crepe ring it was just a bit more contrasty. Again I'm waiting for a night of above average seeing to really see what it can do but so far I'll be keeping the barlow in my ep case. Would I sell the standard GSO to get the ED version? Ummmm not just yet. I have to see what it will do in better seeing compareded to the standard GSO. Either way they are very good barlows for the money in my opinion.

Thanks!

I sent Tom T one of these focusers to see if they would work on the new Meade Light Bridge scopes. Tom just confirmed to me that it is a 2 minute direct replacement for the scope!!! :jump:
