    Orthos have a lot of traction at least for higher powers. Plossls are probably the best for the money, but get the best you can afford - Japanese-made are usually the best.

    For my William Optics ZS66SD, the Nagler 5mm T6 is my favorite to use on the Moon; and also TMB Planetaries, BGO ortho, UO volcanotops 9/12mm and the Meade 7mm Research Grade Ortho. If your scope is not on a tracking mount, a widefield has a definite advantage, like the Meade UWA 6.7mm 5000 series. Lots and lots of EP's work very well with the Moon.

    Best,

    Hernando
