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?
It was a tough decision to let this go, but I hope it will find a good home and get used as it should.
There are many threads on SGL containing the observations I had with this telescope. Here is a collection of my reports with this telescope: astrojournal_by_date.pdf
