First light 13m Nagler T6
Posted 07 July 2014 - 05:07 PM
It's nice to finally see a normally sized eyepiece come in the mail. I can carry a few of these in a pocket I first thought.. Anyways, these feel great but maybe they have more of a straw feel compared to the top 3 ep's, or does it just feel that way because it's smaller. It feels much better in my hand than a previous 9mm TV T6 Nagler I had/

So which are "the top 3 ep's"?
In the 10-14mm range I would have to say the 10 & 13mm Ethos, 10mm Pentax XW, 10,12 & 14mm Delos. These are from comments made on the internet of course. All are great eyepieces, from the 11, 12 and 13mm naglers and others too..

The 13T6 became a regrettable casualty of my eyes' worsening astigmatism. It's only ~1.00 cyl, but I can see the "stig" in any eyepiece above 7mm if I don't wear my glasses.
That being said, it's a phenomenal eyepiece.

When I didn't have a Paracorr, I found myself using the 10mm Delos more than the 14mm Delos because the 2.1mm exit pupil of the un-Paracorr'ed 10mm Delos seemed to hit the "sweet spot".
If you don't need the eye relief, though, the T6's are nice, and you get can get good deals on the used markets.

The 13 and 9mm T6 Naglers, too me are very, very similar in size and weight. And, at least to my eyes are equally sharp.
