Pentax Discontinued!!

Now that Pentax has dicontinued their $300+ eyepieces what's a comparable upgrade. I've got the $99 Meade value pack assortment and I'd like to wear my glasses when I observe. Any suggestions?

Maybe you are thinking of the Pentax XL's that are discontinued and are replaced by the XW's. I just bought my first three Pentax XW's from Anacortes. If you can accept the price, they are an incredible eyepiece.

They haven't stopped making Naglers and Panoptics so what's the problem?
