I have a WO for about a year and it's a nice addition to my EP collection. It came with a pair of 20mm SWA and 1.6x barlow. I only use the barlow to get my 80mm scope to focus. Mainly use the WO in my 8" SCT for Moon and planets.

I'm thinking of adding another pair. I have a Meade 15mm SP and a 26mm SP and can buy another one for about $25 used. Would the 15mm be too much power in them and is the 20mm (66*) SWA WO too close to the 26mm view which is 52* FOV?

Thanks for any replies and ideas.

Bob

I would get a second Brandon 16mm.

Your 19 Pan would also be an improvement over the WO pair, and another good pairing from your collection would be the 13T6.

I see you have a 2X and 2.5X barlows so I think you have the short FL end covered with the 20's and barlows. My favourite pair is 30mm Vixen plossls, in my WO's.

I am considering another 16mm Brandon, but hard to find used, but keep looking. Just missed one the other day for $90:( What about getting another 15mm SP...they are cheap.

For the Vixen 30mm, what scope are you using them with? Give you a nice wide- bright view with them and merge ok?

Thanks,

Bob

Hi Bob, I use the 30mm Vixens in my 6" achro no problems merging the image at all. There is a pic in post a picture of your binos.
