Quote:Andy. Even though you have specified that you would like a 12mm, unless you need to observe wearing glasses, I would highly recommend the 13mm t6 Nagler. Its smaller, lighter, less expensive & arguably slightly sharper than the 12mm!

Quote:The 12,16 and 20 mm T2 Naglers are bit big and heavy compared to their current T4, T5 and T6 equivalents.
Quote:I didn't really enjoy the 9 N T6 I had.
Quote:I own a 12T4. I do not find any eye placement issues.Once you spend a little time with it you learn where to exactly place your eye you will have absolutely no problem.I did not notice any blackout issues and i really liked the Instadjust.It was my,also,first premium eyepiece and i am extremely satisfied from it! You cannot go wrong with that one!Clear skies!
Quote:They look sweet , but one of my criteria is I want all my eps to be 2 inch ready.When using my 16 I find going up and down the ladder irritating, worse yet looking for the adaptor in the dark, lol.Secondly Ive seen the type 2s used for 200 or a bit more.Ive not yet seen the type 6s used for that price.--------------------Andy Miller
