Quote:Also, slower telescopes, such as F10 SCTs, are much more forgiving. I primarily viewed with an C8 for about 10 years. With this telescope, I used only Celestron eyepieces--lower end in price and quality at the time. They performed quite well in this telescope.

I have most of the 1.25" eyepieces (they're very affordable) and really enjoy the views in them all. Very big bang for the buck...
