Blue Fireball 2" Eyepiece Extension Tube with 35mm (1.38") Extension # X-03
5.0
Very well made and reasonable!
I needed the Blue Fireball 2" Eyepiece Extension Tube with 35mm extension when I changed focusers on my C80ED. It fit like a glove and does the job perfectly. It is a very well made product, but doesn't cost a small fortune.

T-Thread Zoom Eyepiece
My main purpose was to use the T-threads connect to a camera and take photos with a Coronado PST. I have not been able to achieve focus by any other means. This EP works great! Like another reviewer mentioned it could not focus at 24mm end with the P...

Should have done this years ago
I installed this set of Bobs Knobs after owning my Celestron 9.25 for nearly 20 years. I've always been afraid to collimate with a screw driver. The knobs have made it simple, and it's better aligned than it has been in years. Easy to insta...

Best EP Line I have
I have the 12.5 and 17mm Morpheus EPs and they are fabulous in all my scopes - SCTs, Maks and Refractors. There is a noticeable improvement over my other EPs in sharpness and contrast - truly a great buy.

BST 2" Variable Transmission Polarizing Filter

Powerful and Flexible Visual Tool
I particularly like separating the two polarizing layers, and threading one in the diagonal and one in the 2" EP. This makes adjustment of the polarization as simple as rotating the EP. Particularly useful for lunar viewing.

Lumicon Night Sky Hydrogen-Alpha Filter - 1.25" # LF3085

Excellent Deep Sky Tool
I use this H-alpha for visual astronomy, since it passes everything from H-alpha to the IR spectrum. The increased contrast resulting from blocking everything below H-alpha is a refreshing view!

Perfect Management System
These stackables make the best system for managing 2" filters. They come with 3 foam pads; I cut a 48mm hole in one pad and glue it to a second pad. This keeps my filters centered. The third pad is available for other cases as needed. Excellent ...

Meade Series 4000 1.25" Super Plossl Eyepiece - 15mm # 07173-02
5.0
Excellent mid-range Plossl
For the money, this is an excellent, mid-range eyepiece. In the long refractors I am using, it is sharp as a tack all over the field. It is nicely made with a smooth barrel (the way I like it). Would definitely recommend to a friend.

MONEY WELL SPENT !!!
A high quality eyepiece, at a very low price. This is my new goto eyepiece, to use as a "SKY SWEEPER". The eye relief is a little too much, for my eye's, the eye cup is not adjustable. I fixed that problem, by taking black sheet foam, ...

Agena Synta / Vixen Style Dovetail Mounting Base / Shoe for Finders -
Very nicely made and mounted on my C8 without any alteration. The mount did require a slight filing of the interior to accommodate the dovetail foot on my Orion CIRA finder. Once the modification was accomplished - perfect fit.

Lumicon laser pointer
The Lumicon laser pointer holds my laser firmly in place. I can position one of the screws to press against the on/off button on the laser and simply turn the screw a fraction of a turn to turn the beam on/off. I was skeptical before purchasing, but ...
