Good day folks
I've been using my Nagler for several sessions now, and after a "false start" I am growing to love it dearly. Even though my main forte is 300x+ viewing of planetary nebulae, my skies are dark, and I certainly love my widefields. Infact, in my 72mm refractor, the 26mm Nagler is beyond fun, it kicks ****, and makes for a fantastic session of cruising the Milky Way and the LMC. The Whole LMC is right there in the field, complete with the bar, and with a UHC, more knots than an old pile of rubber bands.
Now, I am considering buying a 17mm Ethos. In my spreadsheet, it makes sensible compliment to the 26mm Nagler with my scopes. For a start, the weight is near identical. Magnification and TFOV is a sensible step. I'm just looking for opinions and experiences, entertaining reading material, before I send 1000 gold coins on their way like confetti.
Mein scopes are 8", 12", 130mm Newts with F/L's of 1200, 1328 and 650mm, and small F5, F6 refractors.
