Quote:If you already have a 28mm SWA, I would look for something in the 34-40mm range for low power wide view.

Quote:I cannot reach focus with my Celestron f/6.3 reducer with my 2" diagonal, I run out of travel. I dont know which diagonal you have so it may work for you. I have the Meade Series 5000 refractor style with an adapter. I plan to get the Meade 56mm plossl for widest-field views from my SCT's. The 32mm plossl wont show you as much as your 28mm ES eyepiece.

Good to know, I'm definitely going to try out the reducer on my scope before I buy as I've heard some people swear by them and some seem to hate/rarely use them. So I'll see. And I'm definitely leaning more towards the 38mm now...I don't have anything down around 50x and that will put me right in that area with a true FOV of around 1.3 degrees. And it'll be less likely to be passed over in favor of the 28mm ES.
Quote:Decided to go with the 38mm Agena and got a little first light with it last night. First impression...very nice. This is a heavy, very long eyepiece that I was worried might be a little large for my scope, but no issues, didn't really need to make any adjustments switching back and forth between this and much smaller EPs. Very comfortable view, eyecup puts my eye at the perfect position. Wide field of view is very nice and makes this a great "finder" eyepiece as starhopping is very easy using this guy and SkySafari on horizontal flip. My only complaint really comes from my sky and not this eyepiece, the background isn't super dark so I didn't use this one much for actual observing quite yet. This was caused by the skyglow being much worse than usual in my backyard last night(set up right after the SuperBowl and my neighborhood was lit up like a lantern with parties, etc.).Very happy with my purchase so far, can't wait to give this guy a try in darker sky conditions.
