They just HAD to do it!

My diagonal and 24 mm came yesterday. I haven't had a chance to really put it through the paces but I did get some short looks and I am very pleased so far. Waiting for the 30 mm.

I sprung for the sweet diagonal deal last month, as well as the HD 5000 set. I think I'll have to pass on the 30 mm. I had to wait about two weeks for the diagonal and the 24 mm, they haven't seen first light, yet. Maybe tonight. I am very pleased with the 5000 HD series, they are certainly a step up from the 4000 I started with.
Greetings to everyone on the board as this is my first post.

Part of the reason I got my scope in the first place was I enjoyed people's reaction to looking through a good scope for the first time. So, these 2" pieces will help with the "wow!" effect.

Welcome from me as well. I have been very curious about the HD series as well. With me recent feeding frenzy for the UWA series, they are out of reach for me....at least for a while. (smile) I have an LS 8 ACF. The 24 mm is really nice. You will enjoy it. It also works well with a focal reducer. For me, I have been using an f.6.3 reducer with the good diagonal from the deal, then a 1.5 inch extension tube to increase the focal reduction. Ended up with some wonderful wide views out of my SCT. The pupil size is a bit large for my eyes, making the center of the image darker, but the view was still great.
Have fun with yours!
