Eyepiece Characteristics?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have a question about eyepieces. Quite a few actually?

What are the ideal specs? (money no object, hypothetically)

Is it a wide field of view with a long eye relief? Or does each feature have pros and cons?

And what exactly is the 'field of view' and 'eye relief'?

ie. for a given focal length, what is the benefit of a wider field of view? And will an object appear smaller with a wider field of view?

A lot of questions, I know, and I appreciate any answers i receive.
