No problem to get out actually it would be good. Just wanted you to enjoy the eyepiece if the clouds ever clear up and not have to wait for a skywatch. When you are ready to get it just give me a call at 757-362-4597. Retired folks do not have a schedule!

Mark,

You don't need to make a special trip for me.  I live in Aragona Village subdivision of Virginia Beach, near Bayside High School.  

If you do choose to come out this way, the address is 813 Romney Lane.  Or, you could choose a place and I can meet you.

Re: Eyepiece revamp

jimcoble2000
 

I like the Pentax but now most of my observing is with my 4 inch Televue Genesis refractor. Frankly I don't know if it is true or my imagination but the Televue eyepieces seem to work best with their scopes. Years ago I thought they were a bit dark with all that glass but the ones I have now in the Genesis have superb contrast in that scope. I plan on getting a six mm Delos. I am not crazy about the 100 degree field of the Ethos but the 70 of the Delos seems just right. A six mm fits right in with my 3.5 and 10 mm Delos. The Pentax are great in Newtonians.

Sometimes the high powered high pieces are hard to use in long focal length scopes but the Genesis is only 540 mm in length. The 3.5 only generates 150x. Very usable in that refractor.

Not much going on with the sun today (Friday June 19). Two small prominences in H-alpha light and zero sunspots in white light. What’s interesting Venus is now far enough west of the sun to look for it. In the telescope it’s a nice, large thin crescent.

Jeff,

Last Friday there were two of us at Cornland, and 8 of us at Skywatch.  Plenty of distance between.

I expect there to be four to six at Nightwatch tomorrow at Chippokes (weather permitting), but there is plenty of room in the parking lot for social distancing.
