    Default Wide angle EP ....



    This is a terrible thing to say, but I haven't had my scopes out since October. With all the snow we've had this month & what is still predicted, I guess it wouldn't matter anyway....lol. Just the same, I'm getting ready for when the snow does melt away & what I do want new for this year is a wide angle EP. This will be for my Z10, and I really like using the 1.25 9mm that came with it, but I'm looking for something with a wider view with close to the same mm rating. Any suggestions ? Thanks !

    I'd suggest looking at the explore scientific 82 degree line.
    They've got great reviews (similar performance to meade uwa 5000 series), and are on sale now!! 11mm is $150 I believe

    Good luck

    Funny you should mention the Meade UWA 5000 series because that is what I've been looking at ... not for $150.00 just the same...lol. I'll give it a try & see how it goes !
