Eyepiece recommendations

Recommended Posts

Last question (ever) probably.

Is there any eyepiece recommendations for a 5 or 10 inch? (Any). I'm planning to use it for a few years.

Kind regards,

Neil

Just to be clear, are you looking at eyepieces for your current 5 inch / 127mm mak-cassegrain scope or those for a future 10 inch scope, or eyepieces suitable for both ?

What eyepieces do you currently have as a starting point ?

It has 1500mm focal length (I think the focal ratio is 5.9) and it's a computerised telescope.

Suitable for the 5" and the 10" (separately). The eyepieces I have now are two eyepieces that came with the telescope (25mm and 9mm) I also have two aspheric eyepieces (24mm and 4mm) and an omni 15mm eyepiece.

The Celestron 127 mak is F12  so it is not as critical to use high quality eyepieces as it is with faster scopes. BST Starguider eyepieces are very well regarded on this site and they perform well in most scopes. For the price they are hard to beat IMO.

Are there any recommended eyepieces for a 10" dobsonian (Skywatcher 250px) has focal length of 1200mm?

The BST Starguiders should be fine in both scopes.
