A few months ago I bought a couple of old Meade eyepieces and it started a quest to collect all the 1.25" Super Plossls (Japan only).  I now have a mix of four and five element versions but the 20mm is proving to be elusive.  Are there fewer of this one around?  Or is it a popular focal length that people tend to hold on to?  A search of the CN classifieds showed a few but not many.

 

I've now posted a wanted ad on CN but since I'm in Australia it might be a bit too expensive.  Maybe I just need to be patient...

20mm and 30mm are very popular sizes.

They match up with a lot of scopes well.

Now, because they're popular, a lot are sold.

So you should see a lot more available than are, so I suspect you're right--that most people hold on to them.

Fortunately I have a nice Tele Vue 21mm smoothie to fill the gap for now. smile.gif
