Hi Looking to add a good quality low mag EP to my collection. Was thinking somewhere 28mm and above, can take 1.25 or 2" and as wide a FoV I can get. Thinking in the Williams, Explore Scientific, Baader, TeleV... range or other good quality without having to sell a kidney to buy...
Like a lot of new amateurs I am completely overwhelmed with the choice of eyepieces.
I have a Sky Watcher 250P Classic on a dob for visual astronomy. I have recently purchased the Hyperion IV 8-24mm zoom (with 2.25 Barlow) as my general roaming around EP. Now potentially looking for a high powered EP with large FoV to get those detailed views of planets and DSOs - the question is which should I buy? I was thinking something in the 2.5-6mm range and happy to go up to say £250 price point for the right EP.
So, what is the wisdom? A 6mm and Barlow, or some where between 2.5 (pushing the scope) and 5mm without Barlow?
I am relatively new to astonormy. I have a celestron Astro master 130eq with a focal length of 650mm. I have been able to enjoying viewing some of the planets and star clusters so far. I was considering purchasing one of the celestron x-cel LX eye pieces for getting an enhanced view of the planets such as Jupiter and Saturn Has anyone used these eyepieces and if so what would you recommend? Any help would be much appreciated.
Going through all my EP's which I need to whittle down, so I am selling the following EP's, all of which are in very good condition, if not mint;
Celestron Omni 6mm plossl - £10 + p&p
Celestron Omni 12mm plossl - £10 + p&p
Skywatcher SP 17mm plossl - £10 + p&p
Explore Scientific plossl 10mm 70 degree - £28 + p&p (sold)
TMB Planetary 2 4.5mm - £22 + p&p
Explore Scientfic 2" 25mm 70 degree - £40 +p&p
All owned from new, with end caps and original boxes (except the 2" ES 25mm EP which I can't find the box it came in sorry). Can collect if local, or will post in the UK with signed for 2nd class which adds £3.95 postage for each individual EP.
Thanks for looking,
Looking to sell (which I may regret eventually) my Meade 5000 40mm 2" 68 degreee wide fov EP. In very good condition, with original box and end caps. Excellent EP for nice widefield views. Works extremely well in all my scopes that can hold it. Would prefer collection, or willing to meet up within an hour or so of Hull if buyer willing to contribute to part of the fuel costs, or via post if only option (approx £11+ at minimum UK postage)
Looking for £80 (+p&p if required).
Thanks for looking,
EP is now Sold.
