Eyepiece donations towards the EMS scope Please

Our EMS scope is nearing completion, unfortunately we do not have any eyepieces to go with the scope.


 


So I'm here asking for any donations of cheap beginners eyepieces or a barlow that you can afford to give away.


 


Remember this is a starter scope so nothing grand please.


 


Thank you.

I must have something I don't use any more - let me check out what I've got - I already gave away one or two stock eyepieces and a barlow but sure there's something left. :)

You said elsewhere you've hardly used those little old Naglers  :P  :D .

Blimey! If anyone has any other eye pieces they don't want and which are better than the ones which came with my scope i'd be up for buying them! Something in the 10mm range, upper teens or lower 20s and i'd be game for trying something higher!

Thanks everyone, I'm overwhelmed by your generosity.


 


A 25mm, 20mm and 10mm will be an awesome start.


 


As these are 1.25" ep's Sheila unfortunately your 2" barlow will be no good but thanks anyway.


 


Would you mine posting them to me, I'll pay for postage via paypal as a gift.


 


Daz 25mm


Tom 20mm


Eddy or Stephen  10mm


 


Cheers guys

Might it be worth putting a pic of the loan scope in the loan scope thread so people get an idea of scale I assess whether they actually have room to store it? I just remember totally underestimating how big it was as a total newb just looking at pictures on the net :)

Thanks Daz, Tom, Eddie/Stephen for the donation of the eyepieces and thanks to Sheila for the donation of the scope and Felix for the donation of the dob base, Im sure the gear will be used and appreciated.
