A review of the fabled eyepiece series known as the “Halloween Plossls”.

I have these same eyepieces (all except the 20mm and 40mm). Nice eyepieces that I was able to buy secondhand very reasonably. I also think the 17mm is one of the finest eyepieces in this set. Only wish the eyepieces would have had engraved lettering instead of silk screening lettering that can rub off a bit over time.
Great video, especially the explanation of the glass arrangement.
Great video. I too wear eyeglasses so I’m curious what you have “in the tray” when you go out for a visual session. I use a 40mm plossl, 15mm plossl and a decent 2X barlow with my C90. I’m playing around with the Celestron 8-24 zoom as a possible replacement for the 15mm and the barlow; the idea of a two eyepiece kit (40mm & Zoom) is interesting to me. Too much fumbling in the dark with too much stuff and sure enough, I dropped an eyepiece in the past so simplicity means a lot to me.. Any thoughts would be appreciated…if you have time.
