A little girl once asked as I showed her the Moon with my telescope, "Are you a scientist?" No, it's just a hobby....

Quote:I sold my 6mm Radian when I got my Edge 11. At 466x there was no way I was going to be able to use it any more. I now have an 11mm Nagler now that's around 250x and its plenty. I also have a 20mm ES100 which I really love.As far as a good, all around, EP... take a look at the 14mm ES100. Its a great EP and not very expensive, about $300. It'll give you 140x and 0.69-degrees. About what my 20mm gives me.

Quote:I think the 3mm won't work well because it gives a mag. of 666X in a 2000mm F/L telescope, try backing off to about a 9-10mm ep. if your viewing Jupiter wait until almost sunrise when its at its highest, you might be able to use these with planetary nebs. with pleasing results.
Quote: Perhaps the vignetting issues were associated with the (unreported) use of a focal reducer.
