I've rediscovered this hobby after many, many years away, and recently picked up a 26mm, 2" eyepiece from Sbvony to use with my 8" Orion refractor.
It's a 70 degree eyepiece with 22mm of eye relief and while it's a lower cost brand, i'm really enjoying using it.
I'd like to pick up another 2" eyepiece but am wondering if it makes sense to look at a higher power, SWA style eyepiece like something in the 7-15mm range?
Or would wide angle 1.25 eyepieces in that magnification do an adequate or equivalent job? long eye relief is important as my eye's are getting older, and a wide field of view is preferred too.
I have a 9 and 15mm 1.25" Kellner's with 70 degree and like 15-18mm eye relief that I normally use with this scope, so don't want to waste money on a 2" if i'm not going to see a noticeable step up.
Thanks in advance for the suggestions!
