You don't need so many to start observing or for building a set. My first eyepieces 10 years ago were a 5mm Pentax XW, 24mm TV Panoptic and a 9mm T6 Nagler. Over the years I sold and upgraded, sometimes downgraded, enjoyed Delos eyepieces the most, Ethos least, Pentax are great to try at least once. In the end I pretty much settled on comfortable hyperwide 92-103° eyepieces. Find those are the most useful for me on an 11" SCT.

Go with any 3 and don't sweat it. You don't really need filters also, unless they are for solar viewing or if your wanting to view Nebulae from bortle 7 zones, or better.

You'd rather invest in 4 eyepieces. Low mag, medium, medium-high and high mag. 26mm TV Nagler or 22mm T4, 17.3mm Delos, 17mm ES 92 or 17mm Nikon HW, 10-13mm 100 AFOV, and a 7mm Pentax XW to try. Something like that. Add or sell over the years if you continue visual. Tried astrophotography and visual, settled on visual and just enjoying whenever possible.

I have time, and i keep reading, so i will come to decision about which eyepieces i should get, i know once i start with one or two then i will be like addicted, but i have to get scopes first then choices of eyepieces will be more sense.
