I was talking about the max TFOV my telescope can take, which is 1.29 deg by my calculations, being small compared to 2-3 deg TFOVs that I would like to have. For these TFOVs I plan buying that small refractor.Virgil.

Quote:The Agena 1.25" Enhanced Wide Angle Eyepiece - 9mm and the GSO 1.25" 2x Achromatic Barlow Lens should work well for planetary viewing with your telescope. For DSO's the 25mm plossl the came with the scope would be sufficient for now.
Quote:with a 6" scope, you also don't want to go too big a f/l eyepiece as you will start seeing the shadow of your secondary. I probably wouldn't go much over 32mm with a 6" scope.
