I am in the process of purchasing a starter refractor scope.
The aperture of the objective will be between 80 mm to 102 mm and it will be between f/5.5 to f6.7.
I am entertaining purchasing some upgrade eyepieces for the scope.
In particular Meade Instruments series 4000 Super Plossls
The intended mm of the eyepieces would be 25mm, 15mm, 9mm and 6.4 mm. I will purchase two to three of the four listed. Also am considering a 2X Barlow. Total being circa $125. The Meades are about $25 each so I wonder what their quality is.
I do not want to spend a lot initially until I am convinced that skywatching will be my bag.
Are these good first upgrade eyepieces?
