Nikon Diaphot TMD with DIC

#1 Post by KurtM » Fri Aug 24, 2018 1:27 am

I'm almost embarrassed to post this, but here goes: after buying the Riechert-Jung (nee AO) 1820 inverted just a couple weeks ago, I have already replaced it with a Nikon Diaphot TMD with phase and DIC. Okay, so it turns out I jumped the gun in purchasing the 1820, but how was I supposed to know an offer I could not refuse was waiting right around the corner?

Yes, of course I'm beyond thrilled, who wouldn't be?

I reckon this means there's likely to be a very sweet and complete Riechert-Jung (nee AO) 1820 inverted coming up for sale soon, for a very attractive price (okay, $500, what I gave for it). Now's yer big chance, have I got a deal for you, etc., etc. See:

Congratulations. That is awesome looking. How can one say no to that!
I am sure the Riechert-Jung (nee AO) 1820 will find a good home. ... aphot.html
