Good quality at a good price
I've used Blue Fireball spacers in the past - they're good quality and a good price. Threads are smooth and fit and finish are excellent. This one is no exception.

Just what I needed.
I had a couple of t-mount camera lenses that had no end cap when I got them. Someone on cloudynights.com pointed me here. I ordered two and they fit perfectly and look nice. Now my lenses are protected while I store them.

not to pleased
The edges are sharp almost to the point of needing some tape to cover them. And the 1.25 adapter set up with the set screw having to go in the slot is a pain in the dark.
Overall the view is fine.,the construction.,design is poor.

Nice eyepiece, but better than 5mm TMB Planetary II??
After doing a lot of research, I bought this eyepiece to see if it was going to be the "one-two knockout punch" for my longtime and well-used 5mm TMB PLanetary II eyepiece. Overall, construction of the Starguider looks and feels very solid...

Good value
I've used this filter several times to try to capture the clouds on Venus (along with an IR850 filter). Conditions haven't been in my favor, but the filter seems to be doing its job, and I get cloud bands. The filter appears completely dark...
