The TeleVue Apollo 11 Eyepiece availabity >>>
I thought WHCT had one in stock to sell.
Thanx for the tip, Red.
WOW! --- I just visited and it looks like they have one?! They have the old boiler plate "join our waiting list", but do have their | In Stock | flag still turned on. TeleVue has removed it entirely from their site and other Dealers show no lingering evidence of it. So that one could very well be the last and only BNIB available from a dealer?! If I didn't have mine already, I'd jump on it immediately. [Here Tom rushes past the Wine Cellar and van Gogh Gallery... down to his Eyepiece Vault and confirms SN #119 is still there.] Hmmm... I did at one time consider two A-11's, but concluded that my nose is too big to accommodate both simultaneously. But I didn't consider a spare just in case I drop or foolishly misplace #119. I'd sleep better, knowing I bought up the very last one. On the other hand, I still have a couple more three-inchers on my impulse-buy list. And just signed the contract for the kitchen do-over, and the Vette wants new sticky tires etc. "Jeeves, check the tires on the Stingray... Bay six... good for this season or not?" Jeeves will report back shortly. You may be able to yank that spare A-11 out from under me if you order within the next ten minutes.
You know that enticing TV commercial, where William Devane memorably boasts, "I even like the feel of gold!" Well, friends, that's conveys the same feeling you get fondling your Apollo Eleven, as you slide it into the MOONLITE, fine-tune focus, and then dive in. Only we choice few experience that; come join the club! Tom
