Budget 2" widefield eyepiece for flextube Dob?


Recommended Posts

There's a William Optics SWAN 33mm coming to an end on Ebay. Will suffer with the same problems, probably to the same extent as well, as the previously mentioned eyepieces. But could be a good buy while still in the £50 region.

How are the Baader hyperions in a f5 12" newt? I am in a similar quandry as the OP.

I was loaned a set recently to test and I was pretty impressed with them. They did show some astigmatism (slightly distorted stars) in the outer edges of the field of view (say the outer 15% or so ?) in my F/4.8 newtonian but I could have lived with it :)

On-axis sharpness and light throughput was very good I thought.

Just got two 2" SWA Adler Optik EPs.

The 38mm and 26mm. Got them for about £32 each (used).

They're in spot on condition but god only knows when I'll be able to test them for real.

Should be good for nice wide-field views and initial alignment. I have a 12.5mm illuminated for pinpoint alignment.

Sorry Russ, took my eye off the ball and missed that one!
