Quote:@GaryJCarter - the incredible choice in eyepieces kind of intimidates me! I appreciate your recommendations. Based on what you said, would a Tele-Vue 16mm Nagler be a good choice?Also, in another thread, someone was recommending a 3-6 mm Nagler zoom as an excellent EP for an 80mm scope. Any thoughts?-- Chris

First and foremost observing love: naked eye.
Last but not least, telescopes.
And I sometimes dabble with cameras.

Quote:Assuming these are the Type 4 And Type 6 Naglers, that's a very nice selection. The Type 4's have very generous eye relief. I think you will find the 12mm 'magical' on DSOs when you have that ED80 out under dark sky.
