Skywatcher 250px - £300 to spend, which eyepieces?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I recently upgraded from a Mak 127 to a Skywatcher 250px flex tube synscan (f4.7). I'll be selling the Televue 32mm and TMB 6mm that I bought for the previous scope, and will have around £300 to spend on eyepieces, preferably 3, but possibly just 2.

I'll be keeping the BGO 7mm and Celestron Ultima Barlow I have.

I'd like to cover the range from around 4-5mm up to 25-27mm. I'm approaching 50 so I don't think my old pupils will take anything longer :icon_salut:.

I'm lucky enough to live somewhere good and dark, about 1000ft up on Exmoor. I would like reasonable eye relief as I like to share the scope with kids and friends, and wish to cover planetary and deep sky viewing.

What would be your eyepiece choices for this fast telescope?
