ScopTeknix Super Kellner 8mm


Recommended Posts

yeah it is really cheap and that's what worries me slightly!

At the moment cant really afford alot, i am just really look at option / seeing if there are any real bargins out there.

Ideally i want a 7.5 mm eyepiece as this will give me the maxi um (potential) magnification for my nice new scope.

Are you going to be using it with a barlow lens then ?

yes thats what i was thinking, have a 2x barlow, I am tempted to get something a little shorter. Just looking at the options.

Going to get something after christmas. At the moment i am thinking about getting either a 7 or 8 mm TS Planetary HR (http://www.modernastronomy.com/eyepieces.html#hrPlanet) or may be seeing if there is a better ones that are on sale second hand.

I wear glasses and so eye relief is something else i have been looking at.

The TS Planetaries are very good eyepieces - I've owned 3 and they compared well to eyepieces costing 3x as much (Tele Vue Nagler Type 6's). And the eye relief is good too :(

Well worth £50 in my opinion.

Unless you have something like astigmatism, then you don't really need to wear glasses at the EP. The focuser will accommodate short and long sightedness.
