One for Pete......

Don't tempt me! I'm determined not to spend any money before Astrofest. :)

 

That is a bit of an oddball though, but I'm not sure why a Kellner should be such a ridiculous price.

Rarity value I suppose. Had a quick scan around and a few have appeared on E-bay in the past around the $350 mark.

 

The price difference I suppose is the seller is jumping on the bandwagon as alot of these rare eyepieces have increased in price.

Yes, I think you're right Mick. :thumbsup:

 

A big Kellner might fit nicely into my collection for $56, but not $565. :o

Thanks for that Mick. I have just messaged the seller. :thumbsup:

 

Have you seen all the rare tackle John Levine has for sale? I would have liked his Leitz 30mm 88 degree too, but $1300 is just too much, and the $700 Docter 12.5mm. 

 

Must go easy, one eyepiece at a time. :lol:

It looks like it was built to take a tank out! Ah well, another fifty quid well spent eh Pete. ;)

I'll need another accessory for that one. 40mm is not good at F5. :rolleyes:

One Rodenstock Giant is being shipped over the pond. :D

 

Another lightweight eyepiece. :blink:

Well done Pete.

 

Love to have a look at this one in the flesh.

Cheers Mick, you knew I'd go for that one. ;)

 

Quite a handsome beast, I reckon :)...
