Thread: crystals on Poljot / Sekonda de luxe 2209s: domed or flat?

    crystals on Poljot / Sekonda de luxe 2209s: domed or flat?

    Yes! I have!!

    And by using Google to investigate the archives of the Old Place, I've got thoroughly confused as to which is the authentic crystal - a big dramatic dome, or something about 1mm more flat.

    I'll be adding links to what I've found, but anyone's got the genuine knowledge, please do share!

    This does make sense.

    I wonder why skywatch changed his mind? I'll have a really thorough search through f10 posts, see if I can see the story develop....

    That gives me another reason for wanting to be in touch with him (the other is that a friend of mine wants to buy one of his Poljots )

    Ok, I've got some news!

    The flat crystals came from reserve stocks at Sekonda in the UK, presumably originally as some kind of option for the UK market. Apparently fitting them is a bit of a squeeze.

    Here's a photo of one of them fitted to a Sekonda, thus reduced to 7mm

    Certainly I can't imagine one of those flat crystals adding anything to this one:
