    Celestron X-Cel’LX 7mm saves the day!

    Hello Bryan. I wonder how the celestron x-cel lx 5mm eyepiece would work on the Hummingbird, at 34x magnification. Is it possible to buy only the body of the Hummingbird and dispense with the zoom eyepiece? Thanks Peter

    Rigid focus wheel on small trinovid

    Thank you very much for your responses. I was only thinking of being able to use a single finger to focus, but I'll settle for using two fingers. Better to leave it as is. Thanks again Peter

    Moon through Kowa Prominar 883 + APM 12.5mm + 1.6x extender

    Hello Meinolf. I am also interested in using the Morpheus 4.5mm with the Kowa and the 1.6x extender. I have two questions: -How does the set for lunar observation behave? -Can it be used to observe on bright days? (for example, for distant raptor nests) Thank you Peter (sorry, it's a google...

    Opticron sr ga 8x32 inside

    Hi. I recently purchased an Opticron sr ga 8x32 binocular (I'm nostalgic for porro prisms). Until today I did not observe that a white glue appears on both sides in one of the interior joints. Although it does not produce any kind of internal reflection, I would like to know if this appears in...

    Astro eyepieces with Kowa 883

    Astro eyepieces with Kowa 883

    Thank you very much Joachim. The photo that I attach is from a website. I don't have 1.6x extender or eyepiece yet. I would like advice for an eyepiece between 4-5 mm, medium price and that works with this system. I had thought of some Vixen slv or Baader Hyperion. Does anyone have experience? I...

    Astro eyepieces with Kowa 883

    Hello again. I still have the idea of using an astro eyepiece on the Kowa 883 to achieve 150-160x. I have thought that perhaps using the Kowa extender 1.6x in combination with the external screw astro adapter, a greater number of astronomical eyepieces may be compatible. This is so? Thanks again.

    Just bought a TS-614, need eyepiece help

    Thank you. I think it is the protective glass behind the eyepiece. I think he has fungus on his inner face. I will see if with your help I can access it. Cheers and greetings

    Astronomical eyepiece compatible with Kowa 883?

    Thank you very much everyone for your advice Here are wise people! I consulted with Kowa Europe and they confirmed to me that the AS1.25G astro adapter allows a greater number of astro eyepieces in the Kowa 883 (although it is more uncomfortable to use) I think I'll try to buy this adapter soon...
