No barlows allowed! No other eyepieces allowed! Pics and eye candy are a BONUS, so we can all DROOL on the eyepiece you picked.
Name that ONE eyepiece that you use the most and explain WHY you use that particular power the most, with the ONE scope you mostly use it in, FL and diameter / type of the scope, power and field of the eyepiece!
I will start off with ONE of my old faves for now, until I get more used to my new lineup...Then things WILL change! (I might be getting a second Delos or a 5mm Pentax XW!...Then I will be done) !!!! (Yeaaa rrrrrright) LOL !!!
7mm Pentax XW. Scope: 10" reflector. FL of scope: 1200mm.
Power and field of eyepiece: 171x / 24.5'
Reason I like this one: I really like to use medium / high powers a lot on many globulars, planets, and planetary nebulae. The 7mm XW gives hours of comfortable viewing without any eye strain, squinting, and it isn't too heavy for the scope I use it in. Eye relief is really nice! I can keep the eye cup all of the way DOWN and eye placement is still really nice! Clarity and sharpness across the entire field in my scope w/o a paracorr is excellent and even though the AFOV is only 70 degrees, it still feels IMMERSIVE! Planetary views in he XW's are superb!
Your turn !!!
