I can't wait until winter.

Though I live 7 miles from downtown Pittsburgh and light pollution is a killer, I really see some terrific views in winter. This hazy, unstable atmosphere muddled with light and air pollution is for the birds. In the meantime, I have been plucking some terrific eyepieces lately. University Optics has a 2" 45 degree diagonal and I was wondering if anyone used their diagonals? It is a little more than I paid for my dielectric Meade, but I am anticipating a quality piece...any thoughts?

Also, does anyone know if University made a 2" 20mm Konig eyepiece? I haven't seen any listed on Astromart and wondered if they had in the past. I know on their site they have a 20mm 2" piece but I would like a Japanese ocular.

Thank you!

I like winter too. It's just too hot.

I remember University advertising the 24 and 32 Konigs 1.25", the 32mm 2" Konig, and the 25mm and 40mm MK-70.
