I have a number of TMB supermonos (not for sale). They are definitely superior for planetary, close doubles, and resolve globulars better than anything I have seen. Still, they are a specialized eyepiece (I wonder how many production runs there will be), and there haven't been a lot of planets around for months.

I've a pair of TMB Supermono 15, 10 and a single 6. Outstanding eyepieces. I got them from Markus last December. Unparalleled for looking at planets and for use with a Coronado MaxScope, where they bring out more solar detail than even the CMax eyepieces. The limited FOV is what you pay in return but, these are specialized EPs. Should ye desire a big FOV, then get thee a Nagler (mine are 22mm, 13, 9 and 4-6).

Too bad the S&T reviewer got a flawed batch. Could this have been industrial espionage?
