I have had my telescope (114mm A, 900mm FL) now for a year, and I think it is time for a new eyepiece. I have a 25mm, 10mm, and a 2X Barlow. I was wondering what would be the next best size to get. Also I wanted to get a nice one so are there any good brands that you recommend.
What scope do you have? 114 mm A, 900 FL doesn't tell me much.
Can you provide a link?
Refractor, reflector? Appears to be F 7.9 so not likely an SCT or Mak.
Different types of Telescopeshttps://telescopicwa...-of-telescopes/
Can it take 2" eyepieces? 1.25" eyepieces? Or does it use .965" eyepieces?
I presume the eyepieces you have are the ones that came with the scope. Do you know what type they are? Typically they would be:
- Modified Achromats
Knowing what you have would help us understand your expectations. A Plossl would be an upgrade from zany of the others, for example.
What is your budget? "nice eyepieces" can run $300 or more, each.
What would you want from this new eyepiece?
- Higher power?
- Wider field of view?
- better eye relief?
- How about a zoom eyepiece? (my favorite)
