Just ordered a Zeiss from our friend Asenov13 here on the forum.... and I'm debating which EP's to get.
I will have to use a barlow in my TV85 to reach focus, and I want to widest field I can still get.
I'm torn between three or four sets...
TV 40mm Plossl's
Using FOV calculators, it looks like the 40mm plossl and 24mm Panoptic cover the same field - but obviously the Panoptic is more zoomed and a larger "apparent" field.
Same thing with the 16mm Nagler / 19mm Panoptic...
So - a few questions.
1) I find that with Naglers, I need to "look around" a bit to see everything... which is cool for single eye viewing - but I can imagine it probably wont lend itsself well to bino viewing - is this in deed a fact? i.e. should I go with the narrower apparent FOV ep's? I've noticed not may folks use Naglers in bino's.
2) All things being equal - the 40mm TV Plossls are the best value as I've already shelled out a tremendous amount of cash for the setup... but is the narrow 43 degree FOV going to feel too limiting?
Finally - from what I've read, the field stops of all of these shouldn't be a problem with the Zeiss Bino's as they have the larger prism's... correct?
