Hey everyone, I have yet another query....
So, attached are 2 pics I snapped with my phone last night. The first was taken through a zoom ep at about 12mm. The second was through a 25mm plossl.
I see a noticeable color difference, so my question is which one is true? or better yet, which eyepiece yields the truest color?
I have also seen it mentioned that sct's take away some contrast, but do ep's also have an effect on this?
I would like to know, what eyepieces do you use.
Im planning on to buying new ones. But i dont want anything cheap.(Not really expensive either) (Max +-160 dollars). I would like to have some eyepieces with big field of view for nebulas, galaxies etc. , and then some eyepieces which are great for observing planets with lot of details.
Some good eye relief would be great too.
My telescope is Dobson 203/1200.
Thanks for your suggestions!!!
I bought these in person about 15 years ago from Scope City in San Francisco and they hardly ever got used - I got into planetary imaging with webcams at about the same time, so these just stayed in their boxes. (they must have changed the box colour in between my visits :-) )
They have been used less than a handful of times just to check on some new scope purchases, but I've now got a set of Opticstar 82's so these are no longer required.
Supplied in excellent almost mint condition with endcaps, eyecup and original box.
Parks Gold Series 7.5mm through 42mm versions are a 2-1-2 five element configuration sometimes known as a modified Type 2 Erfle. This is virtually the same as the original highly regarded Masuyama eyepiece design.

Hello everyone! Newbie here, Just registered after looking around the net, trying to find answers!
I've always been interested in stargazing, never got a scope, though, Until now, Me and my 6year old decided to get one, I got an Astromaster 130eq, for free, as it has a broken leg brace, and the eyepiece was toast, (I bought a new eyepiece, and got a leg brace on the way)
The eyepiece I got, Was a generic brand, and it's a 40mm one, (I got a 40mm one as the broken one was also 40mm)
Today me and my son got our first look at the Moon, which we both loved! Now however, I've been looking at getting some better eyepieces, From what I've seen, I believe a 10mm would be better for looking at the Moon? I've seen them from 4mm up to 40mm, And I'm unsure as to what I'm looking at:S
Obviously we'd like to view all sorts of things, But as with a lot of people, being on a budget means I gotta be smart with what I get, so any suggestions would be well received!
I think I've read something about certain eyepieces work better for certain scopes, And I don't really know much about the one we have, if it's any good for a starter etc, so any advice there would also be wonderful!
Thank you for reading my longer than expected wall of text:D
