Hey guys and girls!
I have a Skywatcher Explorer 130P SynScan AZ GOTO, SynsScan WiFi and loving it so far.
I'm really looking at observing the Solar System and capturing images using my camera.

 

Primarily the Moon, Sun, Saturn and Jupiter as well as the occasional venture into the void.

I'm buying a good 2x Barlow, so I can limit the amount of lenses I need to a duo / trio for now.

The only caveat is that I REALLY do need wider field for viewing, as I HATE the 'down the barrel' stuff. Doesn't mean it has to be a 100 degree beast either. 

And thread-able eyepiece for attaching camera to it.

Sorry for the long post but I just really want to get set up in the best way possible without spending a grand on eyepieces.
Thanks for taking time to read this.

 

So let's say you were doing this, what 2-3 lenses would you suggest?
