Hi stargazers! 

I don't have a DSLR, but I have expensive mirrorless camera so I need wide lens on top of the eyepiece. I need at least 65 degree fov. I did research but I still didn't find anything good.

Luminous

Thank you in advance!

Little confused. Are you after a wide lens for the mirrorless camera or wide angle eyepiece for the scope? Sorry if I have completely misunderstood.

So, I need an eyepiece which I can take pictures through. That means I don't want that part of the eyepiece where the light exists is narrow. That needs to be wide. Than I can take my camera stand and shoot. 

Sorry for misleading text.?

Ah right, so you want to do A-Focal astrophotography? Camera with lens attached mated to the telescope eyepiece.

I think the Hyperion eyepieces have a detachable eyecup which comes off to reveal a thread. You could then use a step ring to mate the camera lens to the eyepiece. Is that the sort of thing you were after? The Hyperion is a widefield eyepiece with a nice chunky piece of glass. I've not done this since I messed about taking shots of the Moon using Panasonic bridge camera and a Moonfish 15mm 80deg eyepiece.

I meant to say the Hyperion sells for approx £60 secondhand. Clones of the Moonfish 15mm 80deg are still available for approx £50. Not sure what else fits the bill below £80.

Thank you so much! I found a Moonfish 2" 30mm Superview and it sells for literally nothing. It is like 60$! I saved a lot of money because of You.

Great stuff, the Moonfish 30mm should be a good, cheap way of trying it all out without investing too much money. Hope it all works out great.

      As part of my equipment reduction, I'm selling the following items:
      Vixen HR 3.4mm (like new) £200 Vixen HR 2.4mm (like new) £200 1.25" Lunt Herschel Wedge (prism, ND filter, and wedge housing structure like new. Locking screw requires tapping and threading. Hence the discount) £80 SOLD The Vixen HR are the best eyepieces I have ever owned. A few members on CN matched them with the Pentax XO. No light scattering and incredibly sharp. In my opinion colour tone is neutral and sits in between the Docter UWA and my Zeiss Zoom eyepieces. Eye relief is comfortable if spectacles are not used (which should not at high magnification).
      The Lunt Herschel Wedge is an excellent tool for white light solar observing using a refractor. It works even better when combined with a Baader solar continuum filter in my opinion. The hole of the locking screw of the solar wedge requires tapping/threading. Apart from that, everything is in excellent conditions, essentially indistinguishable from new items.
      Caps and boxes (hard case for the wedge) are included, of course.
      Price includes 1st class RM signed-for. Payment via PayPal (as friends) or bank transfer. Collection from Cambridge also available if preferred.
      Thanks for looking,
      Piero

      Just wondering what peoples thoughts are on the pro's and con's of the different types of mounts out there? Do Dobsonian mounts have issues on non-flat surfaces (like a garden) or can Equatorial mounts ever have issues getting out of line too easily?

      Hey everyone
      I am very new to everything to do with astronomy/looking through a telescope and I have recently bought my first scope (a 8" dob) which came with a 25mm and a 10mm eyepiece but I am looking to upgrade but don't know what is good.
      Any help or advice on what eyepieces I should be looking at buying would be much appreciated (budget is anywhere form 0 to 100 pounds per eyepiece)

      Very happy with it! Wish the sky were clear, but as we all know, when we buy astro equipment, it's cloudy! Argh!
      The telescope was collected from David Lukehurst at noon and then we travelled back to Cambridge. 
      John Nichol primary mirror: 37mm thickness, Suprax. Hilux coated. Optics 1/8 PV wavefront  1/27 wave RMS. Strehl .95. Secondary mirror: 62mm MA.
      Here a few photos:

      Hi, 
      I'm looking for a Panaview wide angle eye piece. 32 or 38mm. Willing to pay up to £50 or would consider swapping Canon 1000d.
      Thanks 
      Simon
