Hey everyone, I recently purchased a GSO 8" F/4 Imaging Newtonian Telescope from Tejraj in India. It is currently on its way to be delivered. It is coming with a GSO 25mm Super Plossl eyepiece. As other eyepieces are not available due to covid, and will come by late November, I wanted to ask recommendations from you all.
The biggest problem is the fast F ratio this scope has. I was looking for a medium power eyepiece to buy like the GSO 15mm but then found that how bad they perform at such a fast optics. For higher powers, I will be using GSO's 2.5x and 5x three element barlows with the 25mm and the other eyepiece yet to buy. With a 15mm, I would be able to go to 267x.
I do not have much budget and Tele Vues are way too much expensive here. I don't think going with GSO 15mm would be a good option so I am looking for the Explore Scientific 52° 15mm LER eyepiece.
It is still 3times more expensive than the GSO. So is it worth that much money? Will it be good with my 8" F/4 for deep sky and planetary (with the above mentioned barlows)?
