Gracias Eric

I tried the Quark today with a 40mm TV Plossl (a perfect match for the Quark)

Another fine set of images, Pedro.

I’m envious of your blue skies.... just more grey here.

How do these eyepieces perform with the Quark? Is there vignetting of the fov?

They perform very well. Plossls are the best match for the quark and the TV Plossls are the ones I would recommend (40mm is great, 50 degree field). There is almost no vignetting of the FOV

The "Pic du Midi" Clave' eyepieces are also great (very well baffled). These are incredible hard to find in the used marked. I am fortunate to have the whole collection.

The eyepieces we normally used (82 and 100 degrees) do not perform well with the quark
