Great Eyepiece Deals

Seems like the holiday season has started early for eyepiece lovers. Televue and Baader have some great sales running and it seems BO/TMB has joined them, well at from one vendor.

To start, in honor of the newly released Ethos, Televue has commissioned a 13% of sale on many of their eyepieces and some barlows. Radians that were selling at $249 are now $212. The Naglers and Panoptics are also on sale. Here is a link to the Televue sale at Oceanside Photo and Telescope which runs until December 31, 2007.

Baader Planetarium has a $30 off sale on their Hyperion series. Normally these run at $129 and are now $99. The series ranges from 3.5mm to 21mm in focal length, while the FOV is 68 degrees with 20mm of eye relief. Here is a link to the Baader sale at OPT which runs until December 31, 2007.

The BO/TMB sale is not well advertised. It seems that Highpoint Scientific has them on sale for $59, which is $40 off their normal price. This would make them the bargain of the year. I have the 4mm abd would love to add another to my collection. Here is a discussion over at Cloudy Nights where I first heard about the sale.

Of the sales so far, the BO/TMB fits right in with my budget, or lack there of. I hope the sale runs for a long enough time for me to decide.
