Some nice .965 stuff posted!

 

Here is my small collection:

2 Celestrons 2 Pentax (thanks goes to JW for 3 of those btw!) 

Filters, barlow, Mystery Item #1 (I know what it is, but does anyone care to guess?)

Diagonal, and a .965 LPR Nebula filter.

 

Also not pictured, the ep from the Sears scope finder, and the ep/diagonal combo from the older helical focus 50mm Celestron / Vixen finderscope.
Not sure about the Sears, but I think the Vixen is around 40mm with threads recessed in by the eye lens... and a slightly bent crosshair.

(small picture, for small ep's I guess)

The mystery item is a "relay lens" for use with a reflecting telescope.  A barlow for a newtonian.  Is that it?

Right you are Bill! 

I guess that is the technical term for it. smile.gif

 

Was kinda stumped for awhile when I got it, had never ran into a .965 barlow with a t-thread on it. Celestron called it a photographic adapter in one of the older catalogs, iirc.

Apparently someone found an old stock of brand new Pentax SMC 0.965" orthos at Intercon Spacetec in Germany.

The whole set for 1800 euros. A steal! grin.gif

Probably the last chance to own these legendary eyepieces. Me? I'll pass. Can't afford it. 

 

 

Clear skies!
