I was hoping for your help please on eyepieces ? I plane on getting a better scope up the road but I've got a lot of learning to do first ! My ? Is what eye PC's are the best to start collecting I want the best bang for the buck I plan on keeping them to use with a better scope! So I want something good ! I'm not rich far from it so I don't want to buy them 2 or 3 times over ! I want to spend around 1 to 150 dollars a piece !

Quote:By the way, has anyone got some spare clear skies to sell?
Quote:Xcel-lXs or AT-Paradigms.Best bang for the buck.
Quote:To be truthful, I spend more time at around 50X then any other, this is a 24mm in my scope. High power is great on planets and globs, and for eeking out details in nebulas and galaxies, but galaxy sized views require lower power....
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
