Quote:I have 20mm 10AFOV ES, 30mm 82AFOV Meade, and 40mm 70AFOV University Optics and love them all. I use which ever frames them best. Large objects need to go wider, and smaller/closer objects can go higher power with greater contrast (darker background).P,S, They now have a 25mm 100AFOV ES and in a few years may have 3" diam eyepieces for even wider TFOVs than listed above!
My eyepieces are made from the waste product of exploding stars.
