    For those with astigmatism you need a minimum of 15mm of eye relief. 18-20mm is preferred. If you don't have astigmatism you can probably take off your glasses and you don't need such great eye relief.

    Don't assume that a particular line of eyepieces will work fine, check the specs on each and every one. And yes, there are a few lines that are all great for eye relief - but they tend to be pricey as well. Either way, check.

    We have now ordered a GSO Super Plossl 15mm. We are still waiting for our other Celestron 15mm to arrive. Let's see what comes first !!
