I can't say Ive ever had that one great eye piece. Ive had usable eye pieces, but none I say were great, until last year.

 

I don't know if its considered a classic to most, but sure feels like it to me, at 34 years old.

I would consider it a classic.  To me, classic is a feeling and a level of performance, age seems the most arbitrary way to classify anything.

For me it is the UO 24mm Koenig. 1st eyepiece I use every night. Also my low power sweep eyepiece when star hopping.

Toes UO Koenig's were awesome. Too bad UO isn't around anymore. Someone must still make a good Koenig.
