These are very good two inch eyepieces and would suggest them for f/6 and above (Maks, SCTs, long focal ratio refractors and the occasional longer focal ratio Newt). Pop for an inexpensive 2" diagonal and with one of these eyepieces you are into 2" format for less than $200! A good way to break free from 1.25".

The Edmund Scienfic Erfle is the same as the version currently marketed by Edmund Industrial Optics for $225 plus shipping (they're in NJ, you can google the website). This eyepiece features solid construction, the glass is good and optically clean. 68 degree AFOV. My price: $110 shipped CON USA, which is less than half the new price. A good price to get into 2" wide field format. Erfles are a respectable traditional design. Observing buddies have dubbed this eyepiece the most "star party friendly" of the 32mms I recently tested as the eye relief favors a wide range of positions, so newbies don't see a kidney bean.

The University Optics 32mm two inch Konig is in excellent condition and performs well. You can review specs at UO's website. 60 degree AFOV is tighter than the Erfle above, but the design and look is more contemporary. Runs $130+ shipping, no bolt container. My price $100 shipped CON USA, includes a bolt container which as you know would run $5 plus $5 shipping if you bought it separately. This is a very nice eyepiece and is a great 32mm 2 inch option. The views in my C14 were quite stunning, but I have opted to spend additional money and get some additional fov. As is typical of UO, however, you can't really beat the price-to-performance ratio.

reviews of these eyepieces and zillions of others can be found at
www-dot-excelsis-dot-com. I can't put the link in as is because it gets held up by the astromart software (an antispam feature).


payment by money order.

thanks
Greg
