With some reluctance I'm selling my Gary Russell 9.5mm Super Wide Angle 2" eyepiece. As you can tell from my other ads, I've got too many ~9mm eyepieces and want to get my eyepiece box down to a more reasonable configuration. I have a quad turret diagonal that permits ready comparison of eyepieces head-to-head (lens to lens?) and I tested the Russell 9.5 SWA against my Nagler 9 and Meade 8.8 UWA at great length. Gary's eyepiece held up *very well* in this contest, only losing on field of view to its considerably more expensive rivals. I'd justified keeping it as a "star party" alternative to my pricier 9mms, but realistically this is too much magnification in my scopes for a public viewing, so I'd like to pass this one to someone who will put it to good use. Gary's eyepieces don't come with caps, but for an extra $5 I'll throw in the Stardust (Meade style) eyepiece case I've got it in (otherwise I'll house another eyepiece in it.) This particular eyepiece was out of production the last time I checked-- I understand Gary couldn't get the lenses anymore. I'm asking $90 shipped and insured in CONUS. Jim
