Very similar in outward appearance to the old Rini 2" 38mm Super Plossl, but I made this one myself (so my personal predjudice says to my eyes that it looks perhaps a tad better). Mine offers a few enhancements over a Rini. Instead of using nothing more than wound tape to space and contain the elements (as Rini did), I used hand made blackened aluminum ring spacers. I also added filter threads, which the Rini lacks. In mine the lens edges are all blackened. Performance is at least on par with the no longer made 2" 38mm Rini Super Plossl (but again, my predjudice says to my eyes its a bit better). You can't get a wider TFOV in a 2" than you will see through this eyepiece, since the filter threads are the field stop limiter. Selling for less assembled than the cost of the individual surplus lens elements (2 matching 48mm dia. cemented achromats, and a single 48mm dia. double convex) within it was to me. A nice star party eyepiece at the very least, and it's a one of. $55 delivered in the Continental USA.
