Which EP for a Mak Orion 127
Posted 27 March 2005 - 07:36 PM
I am about to order a Mak Orion 127EQ and would appreciate some recommendations to choose additional EP.
The scope comes with a 25mm Plössl, for 61x magnification with the 1540mm FL.
I am trying to decide what woiuld be a good additional EP. It seems too me something around 7.5mm would be fine for my intended usage (Moon and planets viewing).
Does this sound like a good choice?
How much is it worth spending on such an EP? I am somewhat on a budget, but do not want to cut corners. Would a $40 EP work well with this scope, or it is worth spending more.
Any brand/model suggestion?

You could get an Ortho design for that price range. Great for Lunar and planetary. University Optics has some good performers. 7mm or 9mm. They have a narrow field of view but do well on solar system objects. Orion have some Orthos but I havent used theirs, but I'm sure they're in that price range and should do ok with the Mak.
