  1. Hey guys, bout to buy my skywatcher heritage 130p, to make my setup a little bit more portable. I m also intrested in an eyepiece to buy. One in the range of 6-7 mm and in the price range of 60-80Euros My three choiches are: The Exploire scientific 52 degree eyepiece 6.5mm https://www.astroshop.eu/eyepieces/explore-scientific-52d-ler-6-5mm-1-25-/p,61721#tab_bar_0_select The Skywatcher UWA Planetary eyepiece 6mm https://www.astroshop.eu/eyepieces/skywatcher-1-25-6mm-uwa-planetary-eyepiece/p,44932 And the TS Optics High end planetary eyepiece 6mm https://www.astroshop.eu/eyepieces/ts-optics-high-end-planetary-eyepiece-hr-6mm-1-25-/p,6165 Which one do you think i should buy? They will be used in my SKYWATCHER SKYLINER 200P(1200MM FOCAL LENGHT) AND SKYWATCHER HERITAGE 130P(650MM FOCAL LENGHT) TELESCOPES Will be using them for mainly planetary observing and some globular observing. Thanks Kronos
  2. Hi guys, I have a Skywatcher Heritage 130p and I am looking for an upgrade to /additional eyepieces, mainly for planetary and lunar viewing. At the moment I have my eye on 2 eyepieces - a 6mm66º uwa 'gold line' eyepiece for about £20-30, and an 18mm Baader ortho eyepiece for £50 ish. However, I have recently come across the Celestron eyepiece kit for about the same price (maybe slightly more, but not much) as the 2 eyepieces previously mentioned eyepieces put together. What is the quality of the celestron eyepieces compared to the baader? I've heard that the baader is a good quality eyepiece and one that I wouldn't really have to upgrade in the future. On the other hand, the celestron offers many eyepieces, a barlow and some filters for a great value, but obviously if they are poor quality it may not necessarily be better. I currently only have the 'super' 25mm and 10mm stock eyepieces supplied, and live in the light polluted area of north London. Any other suggestions would be great as well, thanks Dan
  3. Wanted: TeleVue Ethos 6mm eyepiece Must be in excellent condition with original TeleVue box and end caps. Ideally it will have the small screw that fits into the side. I would need to see photos of your eyepiece before making a decision to buy. NOW FOUND
  4. Looking for a 6mm eyepiece for planetary and double star stuff. Instinct and habitat would generally make me go for the orthoscopic; but there are good reports of the SLV, and its high eye relief might be welcome in a short focus eyepiece. John Huntley's review suggested that the Vixen 6mm compared very favourably to the BGO 6mm, and the general view is that the Fujiyama and BGO ortho ranges are similar in quality. But has anyone actually directly compared the Vixen and Fujiyama?
