addendum >>> Raise my thirty four to thirty five! I was brush-hogging the southeast field this morning, and went right over my older 20mm T2! It was on its side with a tight-fitting bottom cap still on and cleaned right up. I misplaced it last fall, figuring it would eventually reappear in one of the domes, some random tub. Thankfully, I had the six-foot hog set reasonably high, otherwise the half inch thick blade would have demolished it! I know there are other tools hiding on the property... A superb pocket knife, a come-along, a short ladder, 3/8-inch drill, who knows what else. Old farm country, amazing what you unearth, especially when the heavy equipment comes out.    Tom

Of course... I will eventually have this complete set. At the moment, the image is a simulation, as best I can recall from my clairvoyant dream. I only have the 11mm, at this point...   Tom

Simulation or not these are all 11mm!  Are you from Earth as this indicates you might be using a Decaviewer for your 10 eyes!!  Or maybe the entire family Binovews together is why?

Clarification: The simulation depicts five matched pairs in focal lengths 3.9, 6.6, 11, 18.5, and the max-field 31mm. The expanded set retains the successful Commemorative Apollo Eleven ™.  Tom

(Wait. Let me count. OK. Zero.)

 

And the world did not end for you?

 

Somehow, I've survived. Not having the boxes, though--that's been tough.

Got these used here, eBay, and astromart. 
Anyone have a 41 pan they want to trade for a ES 20mm 100* + cash?

Very happy for you!!!

 

On the other hand, a pic of the 20mm after being hit by a bush hog blade would have been cool. Wonder how far it would have flown....

 

I was once bush hogging a large field. As I came around I saw a bunch of trash scattered about the track of my last pass. I watched it approach wondering what it might have been - i hadn't seen anything as I passed over the first time. The closer I got the clearer the picture until I finally figured it out. I was staring at the remains of my wallet which had worked free and fallen off the back of the tractor.

16 singles + 9 pair = 34 total. They usually get scattered around, and then I go around with spackling buckets, collecting them and put them back in their respective stable stalls. These are ~working eyepieces~ intended for hard use, not display or show.    Tom

 

~click on~ >>>

Have you ever considered re-purposing those two eyepiece cases for foot protection?

Hah! I discovered my nice straw hat that way... I had taken it off and hung it on something behind me on the tractor and then forgot about it... and found it on the next pass, completely shredded. Just last Saturday, we were strolling one of the fields, and my three year old granddaughter blurts out, "Why are these gloves here?!" And there were a nice pair of my leather work gloves. I had tossed them in the front-end loader a couple of days before.

 

On Topic Update: Thirty five... maybe more will show up...    Tom

Hard to believe but only a few right now. 24 Pan, 9mm Nagler, 8mm Plossl. I also have 2x and 3x barlows.

I don't have anything against them. But they are a bit pricey and some a bit heavy.

70 degrees is my preferred wide field and I like less glass eyepieces for Planets and Lunar.

I'm an equal opportunity brand purchaser.

EDIT: forgot I have a 40mm Plossl I got for Afocal night vision.


Me too! I have two Morpheus, three ES and an old Meade with an old Barlow.

Well, let's see:

 

32mm & 13mm Plossl smoothies (bought new in 1982)

20, 15, 11, & 8mm "modern" Plossls

17mm Type 4

13mm Type 6 (bought used)

9mm Type 6

6mm Radian

4mm DeLite

 

That looks like 11.

 

Favorites? Several: the 17T4 in the scopes with 2" focusers & the 13T6 in the scopes with 1.25".

 

I have an original Paracorr and the later tunable top Paracorr but of course, they are not "eyepieces" per se. No Barlows or Powermates.

The real question should be how many TeleVue eyepiece boxes do you have?

All of them!

Would have even more context knowing what scope was used and what objects are most-often viewed.  A 7mm.  Could be for planets in a moderate sized scope, could be for detailed deepsky, which not enough people do.

Just confirmed on the TeleVue Site:

 

The current offering is 49 discrete makes and models. And I guess if one were to double up on some for bino viewing or true binoscope... could theoretically max out somewhere around 70 eyepieces?! Gota go now... feeling strangely out of breath and stressed... beads of sweat on the forehead, heart racing and...   Tom
