Hi Looking to add a good quality low mag EP to my collection. Was thinking somewhere 28mm and above, can take 1.25 or 2" and as wide a FoV I can get. Thinking in the Williams, Explore Scientific, Baader, TeleV... range or other good quality without having to sell a kidney to buy...
Like a lot of new amateurs I am completely overwhelmed with the choice of eyepieces.
I have a Sky Watcher 250P Classic on a dob for visual astronomy. I have recently purchased the Hyperion IV 8-24mm zoom (with 2.25 Barlow) as my general roaming around EP. Now potentially looking for a high powered EP with large FoV to get those detailed views of planets and DSOs - the question is which should I buy? I was thinking something in the 2.5-6mm range and happy to go up to say £250 price point for the right EP.
So, what is the wisdom? A 6mm and Barlow, or some where between 2.5 (pushing the scope) and 5mm without Barlow?
Revised price. Maybe I was a little optimistic! ?
Selling this hardly used ep to fund my next BST. As new condition, used probably 4 times since purchase. With original box. Now £45 inc. first class post or £40 for cash collection in Doncaster.
See attached images.

Pentax XW 40 mm. Straight swap for a Tele Vue 41mm Panoptic.
I am relatively new to astonormy. I have a celestron Astro master 130eq with a focal length of 650mm. I have been able to enjoying viewing some of the planets and star clusters so far. I was considering purchasing one of the celestron x-cel LX eye pieces for getting an enhanced view of the planets such as Jupiter and Saturn Has anyone used these eyepieces and if so what would you recommend? Any help would be much appreciated.
