    Default new eyepiece for spotting scope?



    I've got a Tasco 50mm spotting scope with a zoom 18-36x eyepiece. I noticed
    during some recent Mars watching their is quite a bit of what I think is
    achromatic aberration. Plus I don't care about the zoom feature. Is it
    possible for a newbie to replace the eyepiece with a better one; sort of a
    cheap way to improve the scope? Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

    50 mm is pretty small and there's not much room for improvement there. I'd
    start saving for a bigger instrument. In the meantime I'd make use of what
    I had already.
