Hi!

I'm building my first telescope here in Sweden and along the way there have been quite a few problem of getting material since everything is so expensive over here:( One of the things that have confused me the most is the choice of eyepieces. I have a 9.8" f/5 making the focal length 1225mm. I was on my way to by one of the vixen zoom LV eypieces but then heard about the HArry Siebert eypieces from this forum. I looked them up and they seem to be Exelent handcrafted units! I allso talked to Harry Personally and I must say that most of my worries have been laid to rest since this guy puts his soul into his work :) And to top it of he's one of the nicest people I've spoken to when doing business!

I'm thinking about buying the 10mm, 21mm and 35mm eyepieces he carries. So I just wanted to know if anyone has used any of them or perhaps the 32mm which uses extra wide glass. Or any other of his products so that they could tell me what I could be comparing them to. Allso I'm thinking about buying the variable barlow which would give me an exelnt supply of different powers.

hope to hear from someone soon since if I'm going to order it'll be pretty soon :)
