I'm looking for some advice on an eyepiece that will give me the highest useful magnification with my AT102ED. I recently purchased the 4.5mm Morpheus and I'm very happy with it. I'd like to go a bit higher, but I don't want to get something that might be usable once or twice a year. I'd like to keep it under $300 but would consider cheaper alternatives (I'd love another Morphie, but they don't make any that short). My thoughts are the following:
DeLite 3mm This seems to me too much magnification
DeLite 4mm This seems more reasonable, but it's close to what I already get with the 4.5mm
Paradigm 3.2mm I know these are good, just wonder how they compare to the more premium DeLite's.
I've considered a barlow, but I think that would still just give me a single useful extra power so no real cost savings there. Plus all the extra hassle of dealing with another device in the focuser...
