WO Binoviewer, new eyepieces?
Posted 14 April 2013 - 05:30 PM
My WO binoviewer is working great in my 12 inch dob thanks to help from this board. I had to buy a Siebert OCA and can now achieve focus. The views are phenomenal.
As such, I get 1.25, 2, and 3.5 power with my supplied set of 20mm eyepieces. (I also have to use the 1.6 'corrector/barlow' that came with the binoviewers.) Point is, I have a wide variety of viewing options with the supplied 20mm eyepieces.
I'm wondering, as everyone here was so helpful with my last issue, what you think about a new set of eyepieces to compliment my existing 20mm's. Should I go with a new set of 15 mm's? 30's or higher? Expensive wide fields or simple, cheaper plossls?
I will also be adding a four inch refractor to my arsenal soon (deciding on a make/model). Not sure if that would factor into anyone's recommendations. The scopes I'm looking at are between f/5.4-7.
Thanks in advance!

The surprise for me are the WA 60* eyepieces Shame they don't come in a 24mm FL. Scope is 6" f8 achro refractor.

maestro you wont gain much fov by going up from 20mm 66deg ep, most fov you can get in 1.25" is from a 24mm 65deg eyepice ike meade swa or panoptic-or something like TV plossl 32
how do you find the 20mm ep's at the edge of your fov ?

the 12mm's sound ideal.

A pair of Paradigm Dual Eds are next.... I've got one 12mm and need to order the other. A very good eyepiece!
