Cool, I have 3 Baader Classic planetary Orthos up for sale if you're interested. I got them but never used them in the end.


I already have them. The 10mm BCO is probably my most used eyepiece on the 127mm SkyMax.




You can see it here with the Baader Zeiss Amici aimed at the Moon. I've taken the eyeguard off and also now have a close fitting dust cap borrowed from a borked ortho'. Apparently the BCO's are based on an old Zeiss Abbe orthoscopic design but with an enlarged field stop to aid target acquisition. I have a bino pair of the 32mm BCO's. Although they are actually a Plossl.

Speaking of ES EP's. A while ago I decided to replace my 19mm Luminos with an 18mm ES. They have equivalent fields of view. I quite like the Luminos, even with the 'problem' of EOFB inter alia. Unfortunately the 19mm Luminos is just too heavy on most of my set-ups. I waited nine months from the retailer before they could obtain the 18mm ES for me. It is better edge corrected but I find the eye relief less ergonomic when using it with scopes slower than f/5.




Having to wait nine months does make me wonder about ES supply chain problems, and why they have a new 6.5mm as they have the 6.7mm.
