    Default help eyepiece choice



    I have made up my mind on what mount and telescope to get, but the Skywatcher 150/750 PDS with 2" focuser comes only with a 28mm eyepiece (dont know the aFOV yet)

    Can anyone recommend a 5-6mm + brand that would go good with this telescope?

    Since it is a fast Newtonian, avoid anything with a 70 degree AFOV (Q70 or W70 eyepieces, for example). That design doesn't work well with Newts: the field curvature is wrong. 68 degrees is fine though: different design.
