On one hand, exotic glasses can be hundreds of dollars per kilo. This
is expensive if you are building a primary objective. But here we are
talking about eyepieces, where the lenses are fractions of an ounce
(excuse the mixed units).
So for us armchair opticians, living vicariously through your
experiences and reports, how expensive can that be?
Take this as a general question if you wish: Just how expensive do
those exotic glasses get, generally speaking?
