Beginners Eyepiece Selection Tutorial

Recommended Posts

Just found this little primer on how to select a suitable eyepiece for a particular telescope and viewing expereince. It doesn't deal with individual makes of eyepiece, but rather explains how different "types" of eyepieces behave with scopes of differing diameters and focal lengths:-

I thought it might be useful to someone starting out - I found the information very informative and easy to understand.

Wow! that's a sophisticated looking site! (Wilmslow you see - very posh!).

Seriously though, it does have a great range of calculations, and could be a natural progression from the the kind of site I put on here, to the "Wilmslow" site.

I've "bookmarked" it for later use.

A good find Dave!
