I saw the ad in S&T but is this eyepiece already available?  Any idea how to order one?

Thanks

Discussed extensively here. Not available yet, I suggest you log your interest with a vendor (or three) that sells Tele Vue eyepieces.

Fall

Yes.

 

I should be able to afford one by then. I do want one. Who wouldn't? A special edition TV eyepiece!

 

Or, I might get a 13mm Ethos...

Why should I buy the TV 11 mm Apollo edition?  Why?  Nostalgia? Collectability?  Meh ... shrug.gif  I don't play that.

I would want one.  But my want doesn't rise to the level of actually buying one.

Yeah, as I said, I'll probably end up getting the 13mm Ethos...better suited for my needs. I like the Apollo 11 though...

I really like the specs on this one, but would I pay $600-$800 for it (Don’s estimate)? No way. I’m hoping that TV will release it as a non collectible version after the collectors snatch up this version.

Please forgive me for asking:  Have you ever looked through a Tele Vue 11mm Apollo 11?  Better yet, have you ever done a comparison between a Tele Vue 11mm Apollo 11 and the eyepiece you assert will save the OP money?  The price of the eyepiece you are recommending is not chicken feed; furthermore, the OP is asking about the status of the Apollo 11 and how to order one, and I don't know why another eyepiece would be relevant to OP's query.

Not angry I assure you. Just making a point.

Tele Vue is quality, especially when it comes to eyepieces. You can rest assured of that. Pricey sometimes, yes, a little over the average at others, yes again. But you are certainly better off saving for a little longer and paying the price for what is truly a lifetime investment (a quality eyepiece).

I am by no means rich, but I can afford a good TV eyepiece at least once a year, and I consider them entirely worth it.

Same players every time 25585.  I wonder if they ever get any actual scope time.

With only 300 being produced, either the price or the availability is going to be a huge problem.

I'm not paying that much. Just as well go for a 21mm Ethos.

What’s the deal/issue on TV all the time here ?
Set up a note at your dealer.
Get one or not.
Guys like SE, get one, perfect.
I has the Ethos 13 mm and the Nikon HW 12.5 mm AND will get the Apollo 11 mm.

And I'm gonna stick with my 11mm Tele Vue Plössl because it provides the same mag (narrow FOV, true dat) and if I drop it on the ground and smash it into a million bits I can just replace it for $95 American dollars. Sweet deal if you ask me! smile.gif

 Not that it's actually any of your business (You've been a member 1 whole year, 16 for me!), when it's not raining and no moon I'm out (June 31st at a star party, ask Allan & Sue French)! Actually 25585 is almost always creating controversy, just giving him a little taste of his own medicine! waytogo.gif
