My 9mm is just a standard 50°, so I guess my thinking is that it would be nice to have a wider view other than just my panaview. But it is fair to say that is not a necessity.

I will be getting the scope out tonight (despite the moon) and will see if I feel the need for another piece!


Now I feel so stupid.  There you are in your avatar picture with your 8" EQ scope.  I somehow missed that yesterday.

Really it depends on your budget, but 13mm plus or minus a millimeter tends to be a very popular focal length eyepiece for many folks with many different scope types.

Interesting observation. I generally use tracking scopes, so that might explain the different experiences. Is this effect limited to the 15 mm or have you seen it in others too? 

It seems to be the whole line.

You decide which one fits your budget.
