I have 14 eyepieces in my collection, but these 8 are the ones I use the most. The Celestron zoom is excellent on double stars, as far as color goes, and is great for when I don’t feel like taking out a load of eyepieces. The 6.5 and 25mm Meade HD-60s will become classics, now that they’re discontinued. I especially like the 25mm as a finder eyepiece. The Ultima SV is my favorite barlow. I just picked up a near mint RKE 28mm and really like it! Mine is threaded for filters too. The Baader Classic Ortho is my latest addition. It gives me a tiny bit more detail on the planets than the Russell 19mm Konig next to it. However, barlowed, the Russell is great for outreach! People enjoy the eye-relief and 70 degree field, and it’s sharp right to the edges in my refractor. The poor Meade 15mm Super Plossl is underrated. There’s nothing wrong with them. It has a sharp field stop and gives nice views. One of my sharpest views of Saturn was with this eyepiece and a Meade 2X barlow. It looked like a little photo from a book! My final eyepiece purchase will be a Televue plossl I’ll buy for Christmas. Maybe someone can suggest one for my scope. 120mm, f8.3. Oh, for those who like to cry about CA, it’s barely visible in my scope and a magic trick cleans it up to where it has at least an ED scope view. I just stack a light yellow #8 and light blue 82A filter with any of these eyepieces and you have a beautiful view on bright planets and the moon!
