A Couple of Questions

Postby Nightspore » Thu Nov 07, 2019 2:00 pm

I’m just wondering about a couple of things (it's that time of the year).


Is the much vaunted Edmund Optics 28mm EFL Mounted, RKE Precision Eyepiece 2” or 1.25”? Does anyone own one or used one? They seem to have reached a mythical status.

Many claim the Orion Tri-Mag 3x Barlow is even better than the TV x3 Barlow. I’ve owned the TV3x for a number of years and it’s probably the best 3x Barlow I’ve used. Unfortunately it is a bit tall (13cm) for diagonals and it won’t focus in my 150mm, f/6, Newtonian. As Orion don't actually manufacture anything themselves this must be made somewhere in the PRC. Are there other versions of it? If there are I bet they're even cheaper lol. Does anyone have a Tri-Mag?
