My collection of Clave' eyepieces

Recommended Posts

Here is my collection of Clave 'eyepieces. I believe they are all generation 3 pre Kinoptic type with 1.25 "barrels.

 

4mm

6mm

8mm - Side marked

10mm - Side marked

12mm - Side marked

16mm

20mm

25mm

40mm

 

Would love to get the 3mm, 5mm, 30mm, 35mm, 45mm, and 55mm but they seem pretty hard to get.

 

This is not just a collection, I use each one and they are very good indeed, very sharp on axis and give great color and clarity.

That looks like an earlier type 1.

 

What's it like to use?

It is a Plössl.

I have not used it for a long time. I am now a photographer.
But I remember that it was certainly the best I owned.

Large visual field. Precise stars up to the edges.

No sorry I don't.  Does the forum translate my post to French?

I think it's not necessary.

 

Nice collection ;)

Just wondering where was the Clave factory in France, I presume in Paris but where.

 

There is a lack of Clave info on the web, can not even locate a Clave history website.

I used to have a complete collection of Televue Delos. They were great but I found myself not using them much. I then compared the 10mm delos to the 10mm Clave on Jupiter and the clave clearly showed better detail, darker sky, and on axis was sharper then the delos. The 40mm is very nice as well and shows a dark sky with pinpoint stars right to the edge, very natural and the view is what I like.

 

The downside is the field of view, but it's wide enough for me as all my observing is done in the center. They are expensive but they are quality eyepieces.
