  1. The only way to judge is to try one..all this is subjective as conditions do change through the night.we all see differently anyway. Think I will stick with fixed focal.yes zoom has its place in astronamy.but not in my eyepiece case.we all strive to improve on what we have.but I sometimes think we loose the reason why we got into this astronamy in the first place .and to enjoy what's up there instead of wanting better all the time.enjoy your scope and the views.that's why you bought it.isn't it.???.
  2. Looks very nice.I must admit I did contemplate buying this.but I chose to buy fixed focal. How does it measure up against fixed.is it really that good.l want to hate it but the more I read I'm trying to keep my wallet hidden.arggghhhh

  11. Hi.I was thinking of buying one of the above.but what my issue is are they fitted into the 2"part of the focuser using the screws .I get that you rotate the part to lock the eyepieces. so how do you know it's central.???.
