Re: Axiom LX/Luminos and the Naglers
I have a Televue Nagler 9mm and it is a fantastic EP - this is definitely the EP I use the most and is pretty much always the one in my scope despite it's high mag (311x on my scope). I have been looking into options for lower mag EP's recently and have been looking at the Televue range, Explore Scientific (for it's wide FOV) and the Baader Hyperion Planetarium range. I am still undecided and will probably write a post on here asking for others views on the best EP for the job and how they perform compared with one another but I am leaning towards the Explore Scientific 14mm at the moment.... I like the idea of the wide FOV and I ave heard a lot of people on here raving about how good they are. That and they're not quite as expensive as the Televues! If I had limitless funds i'd probably go for the Televue Naglers, Radians and Ethos ranges and get a couple of the Explore Scientific ones anyway.
I have no experience with the other brands you mentioned so can't comment on them or how they compare with the Televue
