    Default Nagler 11mm t6 VS 12mm t4



    Which eyepiece is better, considering that it will be used on a C9.25"
    and tha I also own a 16mm t5?

    Best regards

    The fact that the 11mm Nagler Type 6 is parafocal with the 16mm Type 5,
    and the convienience of not having to put in / pull out a 2" to 1.25"
    adapter, would lead me straight to the 11mm Nagler.

    Default Nagler 11mm t6 VS 12mm t4

    The 12mm T4 has both a 1 1/4" and 2" ring on it so it can be used in either
    capacity.

    The 12mm T4 has quickly become my favorite eyepiece from televue. I've
    tried the T6's and for size and convienence they are very nice, but they
    tend to have a yellow hue on brighter objects. The T4's don't exhibit this
    behavior. I have both the 12 and the 17 t4's and they are the best wide
    field eyepieces I've ever owned.

    Thanks for both answers, I'm leaning to the 11mm t6 (it costs less 400 € vs 500 €).

    I'm also investigating getting hold of a Nagler or two, but the prices
    here in Europe are (as with most things in this hobby) bordering on
    extortion in comparison to those in the US. For example, the two you're
    thinking of are available for $240 and $300.

    There is of course duty (I think 6.7% for optical equipment) and VAT
    (19% here) to pay on top of that, but with the Euro so strong at the
    moment there are still potentially significant savings to be had.

    All I'm wondering about is whether TeleVue restrict sales to local
    dealerships, which would make such imports difficult, if not impossible.
    Does anyone know if this is the case?

    IMHO even at those prices these are the best EP I've found.

    One alternative is to buy secondhand via astromart, but then the
    challenge is to actually find a seller who is willing to ship
    internationally.
