Telescope for eeva


Recommended Posts

Hi all 

it's been awhile and weather is crappie here in Michigan . The question I have is what is a good scope to start out with for eeva  ? I would like to view both planets and deep sky objects also. I have a mount in mind but no scope. I would like to keep the scope below $ 750 if possible. Thanks in advance

Hi Ken,

The simple answer is any scope. EEVA works well the shorter the focal ratio (f6 to f4) is a good range. SCT scopes are good because they are versatile and can be used from their native f10 (better suited to planets), used at f6.3 with a reducer or if the camera can take a 0.5 reducer then they are used at f5.0. (Hyperstar compatible versions are used at even shorter focal lengths - that is another story and expensive). Personally I see little value to using the EEVA technique for planets - give me visual any day with the appropriate scope.
