This is a complete set of the classic, long discontinued and much sought-after 1 1/4" Orthoscopic eyepieces made by Tani of Japan and sold by University for forty years. This is new old -stock and is in mint, super clean and like new condition complete in original boxes and all dust covers.
They are fully coated including the latest multi-coatings on all exterior air-to-glass surfaces. Smooth sided chromed brass barrels threaded for standard filters. Enameled aluminum tops with engraved enamel filled legends; not decals or silk-screened.
The set includes a University 2.8x Klee Barlow lens; absolutely the best +2x Barlow ever designed! It uses a 3 element air-spaced lens arrangement and is fully multi-coated on all air-to-glass surfaces. Securely mounted in an anodized aluminum barrel.
Also included are original University catalogue pages for these items, a short account of the Ortho eyepiece and especially the Tani products, plus a printout of the Cloudynights forum about the demise of University Optics.
All the lenses and paperwork are supplied in the aesthetically proper storage case for historically classic optics: a wooden cigar box.
