I’m new to the forum, but have been into astronomy for a while. I have a vintage Celestron orange C8 that I bought used when I was a kid. As an adult, I’ve not put much money into this hobby, if I can call it that, but I’m now thinking of buying some decent eyepieces. I currently have a 10 mm Plossl and the original 25 mm ortho that came with the scope. I also have the original 90 degree adapter. The scope is in good shape I think.
Is it a waste of money to purchase good eyepieces for an old C8? If I throw a Televue Delite on it or a Celestron Xcel LX will I be getting most of the benefit of such an eyepiece?
