  1. Hi there, hope you don't mind quick question. I'm looking at getting a Skywatcher Equinox 80ED but as it comes without EP's I have to choose a widefield one. The Baader Hyperion 24mm looks good but I'm a bit concerned about the weight, esp with a diagonal. The f-ratio is 6.25, so I'm interested that you've found the 5mm ok with an F6. The Equinox is well-built, metal, and has a 2" focuser so it should be ok even if it needs a bit of weight on the front to balance it. Scary business, buying EPs, so any thoughts welcome.  Best.....
