I'm not really sure who made these eps, I've been told they are Paul Rini's.

In any case, they are of the home grown variety, decent quality, good sharpness and light transmission. They are not threaded for filters.

They are fun eyepieces, with a lot of eyerelief. They are more like little windows to space than conventional eps.

Not sure what the AFOV is, the 60mm has a slightly wider visual field than my 40mm Axiom, the 25mm seems to have a similar field to one of my 70 deg eps.

The 60mm has some minor paint flecks missing from the rim of the lense barrel. Both eps are clean and scratch free. Both eps have aluminum lower barrels, the lense cells are platic.

Newbies, be aware that 60mm eps on fast scope have a huge exit pupil. While this is usually of little concern for refractors, it can limit light transmission in reflectors because of the relative size of the secondary shaddow. I used both on my 16" f4.5. Technicly, the 60mm had too big an exit pupil for this scope, but I found the views VERY enjoyable none the less. Daytime use makes the secondary shaddow visible in both eyepieces on fast scopes. Use with dark adapted eyes (bigger pupils) makes this effect dissappear from view, though the exit pupil is still larger than 7mm in the 60mm on the 16" f4.5.

$35 for the 60mm, $30 for the 25mm, shipped, or $60 for both, shipped.
