i am currently using the gear in my signature, but planning to upgrade to a NexStar Evolution 8 once supply constraints ease. my eyes were never great, and now with age, EAA is really the only game in town. so i'm grateful that through many of you i discovered EAA in this forum *just* before i was about to invest in serious eyepieces!
i have no focal reducer as yet, just a .63x on order with Astronomics since February, but i was also looking at the always-on-the-horizon Night Owl .4x reducer. just last night i noticed that it's 2".
is there any benefit to me, given my current and prospective equipment, to moving up to 2" in general? or is it something i can treat as specific to the Night Owl for my purposes and just buy a 2" visual back for that? i guess the same question would apply to replacing the cheap barlow that came with my NexStar 6se, but it would be a safe assumption that 2" eyepieces are not in my future.
happy to hear any viewpoints or links to resources i should have consulted before asking!
