Quote:I've had an ETX-125 for about 2 years and I have the Meade 4000 series 26 mm, 15 mm and 9.7 mm eyepieces as well as the 126 Barlow.Will I get any benefit with the 5000 series eyepieces?Thank you.

Ok, equipment list…for reference purposes only!
…Missing my RV-6. Why oh why did I sell it?!?!?!?
Quote:I said this wrong; what I meant was that the 82° AFOV was not as appreciable the way I use binoviewers preponderantly; I think 68° AFOV eyepieces are more than adequate for binoviewing. On the other hand, the wider field eyepieces are more appealing in monoview than narrower AFOV eyepieces. Tim
Quote:Well, time for my 2 Cents...Going from the Meade 4000 Series to the Meade 5000 HD-60 was a HUGE leap in quality and image (Santa got me the HD-60 set with carrying case - nice dude). Am I an eyepiece expert? Nope, BUT the improved view was obvious. I have the UWA 5000 eyepieces, but not the 1.25" variety. If experience is a guide the leap to these eyepieces will be even more profound. As far as bino-views, I can speak to that. I am in the squint one eye club.
