Eyepieces for a Mewlon 180 and F.T. Focuser combo?
      #5682245 - 02/15/13 07:53 PM

I have a Tak Mewlon 180 fitted with a Feathertouch Focuser ( FTF2008BCR )and could use some suggestions as to a couple good eyepieces. There are a few threads out there about certain eyepieces not coming to focus with this combo and I could use some advice from people that have used this equipment.
This would be mainly for planetary and double star viewing.
Anywhere between 50X-200X.
Thanks in advance.
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I don't have the FT focuser on my Mew180.
But I have found the Vixen 17mm LVW comfortable as a great mid-range ep.

I am part of Adler and a scrappy group of sidewalk astronomers, Chicago Astronomer.
We do a lot of observing along the lakefront.
PM me for more details.

Enjoy your Mew180. It's a nice portable lunar/planetary grab-n-go scope.
