Hi everyone. I was wondering what you would recommend for the planetary observer with the Tak f/9 DL. I'm thinking about both EP options as stated in topic. What are your thoughts and/or experiences? The TV zoom is less expensive, but is the quality the same? Thanks very much.
Build quality is the same, not the optical. DeLite surpasses the Nagler Zoom in most every way (at least to my eye):
- More eye relief
- Larger AFOV
- Sharper on-axis (crisper, more defined image)
I went through several Nagler Zooms, both 2-4 and 3-6 looking for one to use in the planetary role, but none produced an on-axis view anywhere near as precise as fixed focal length planetaries. It is nice, and convenient that is for sure, but you pay for those as nothing is for free and for every take you have to give something.
