I have a 6" f/12 (152/1836) GSO Classical Cassegrain OTA and 2" diagonal on the way. SInce nearly all eyepieces work well with such a long focal ratio, you'd think eyepiece selection would be easier, but I am not finding it to be that way. I am looking into 18mm ad 25mm to start, so I figured plossls would be fine, particularly since I like good eye relief and those FLs, even in plossls are still good. Then, I started considering AFOV. I was thinking of Orthos and that they have always been considered excellent for what will be primarily have Lunar and Planetary scope, but I, at least want to be able to see the whole Moon in the FOV for eclipses and, at 40* FOV, that will not work. Panoptics look great but I just don't know. In the 34 years I have been observing, I have never had what would be considered high-end EPs. I am also thinking of getting higher end EPs but, then again, most EPs at f/12 will be sharp on axis. It will be mounted upon Orion's Skyview Pro, currently manual, and used with 2x, 3x and possibly 2.5x barlows. I can go to a couple hundred dollars each, but I am torn.
