        Comments about Meade Series 5000 HD-60 18mm Eyepiece (1.25"):

        I've been comparing this eyepiece to my Tele Vue Nagler, and frankly gang, I think I spent too much on the Nagler and not enough on my HD-60 collection. Don't dink around. Get the whole set of HD-60s which I wound up doing without getting the package discount and case. These are excellent eyepieces. The contrast over the series 4000 eyepieces is night-and-day. The convenience of the rotating barrel and the size of these eyepieces strikes an accord with me. My LT-6 never looked better. Love-em.
