    Default EYE PIECES, the correct ones.



    Greetings All

    Is there a correct eyepiece to view saaaay, planets, nebulae or other distant objects. What size, brand, and magnification should I use?
    I've done a lot of reading online, but there is a mountain of information, sometimes conflicting. Is there a link or intro level explanation around?
    Any help is appreciated.

    Oh I have a Sky-watcher 10 Dobsonian, its my first real scope and I'm super excited with it.

    This may help when choosing some focal lengths: Article: What Astronomy Eyepieces should I get for my Telescope?

    AFOV (apparent field of view) of the eyepiece is more subjective to the user and what targets you are wanting to view.
    Wider FOV eyepieces will let you frame an object easier.

    The weakest link in the optical chain is the large nut located directly behind the eyepiece/ camera. - Gabrielle

    thing in some balance of perspective. Apos are awesome, but long focus Achros aren't that far behind them - Siriusandthepup (CN)

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)

    Hello moonhawg,

    for the planets and Moon, the wide field HD or HR "Planetary" are on the budget side of our hobby quite widespread among the refractor and Dob users. With enough aperture, like your 10" Dob, they also work on the globular clusters.

    For the galaxies, the Ultrawide ES 82° are again popular on the budget side.

    With any telescope, it is always good to have a quality Plössl f=25mm for the low contrast difficult nebulae and galaxies.

    You'll always save money when buying pre-owned premium eyepieces in "classifieds".

    Best,

    JG
