Hi Jeff. I got my email from Agena Astro yesterday evening too. Wow, and I thought that I was done buying eyepieces until I saw the fantastic prices on ES products during the NEAF sale, which ends May 12th. Thanks for posting this great sale news for everybody here on TSS Jeff and get them while you can folks.

Well, the sale ends today (12 May), and I fabricated a reason to take advantage of the pricing.

Already owning all the five-quarter-inch (5/4") 82 degree models, I simply could not resist the pricing on the 2" models, so I ordered them and will now will have the complete set when they arrive Tuesday.

I found a foam-filled case that i wasn't using previously to store them all in as well as an extra 2" diagonal to include with them, for an ultra-wide set to use on just about any scope.

Where there's a will.....

And, here they are!

Added a Meade 2" tele-extender as well, that was just sitting in a drawer, and a TV brass balancer.

Haven't yet figured out just what will occupy those spaces.

Yes, you have it well covered. If you have a fast scope you may benefit from ~3mm and if you have a slow scope from ~50mm, otherwise all set.

I thought I would bump this thread.

I received a newsletter email from Astronomics today. There's a sale on some Explore Scientific eyepieces during September. Not all ES eyepieces are on sale; just select focal lengths in each AFOV category (52, 62, 82, etc.)

Here's a link to Astronomics showing the eyepieces that are on sale:

https://www.astronomics.com/more/on-sal ... l?limit=50

Agena Astro is also showing the ES eyepieces on sale so I'd bet this sale applies to all ES eyepiece dealers, at least in the USA. I don't know about outside of the USA. I didn't take the time to check any websites in Europe.

Agena Astro - ES eyepieces:
https://agenaastro.com/eyepieces/shopby ... t_limit=72

Explore Scientific's website - eyepiece sale:
https://explorescientificusa.com/collec ... ew=view-48

I thought it was worth a heads up.

Cheers! Bob F. :greetings-waveyellow:
