    Most people are going to ignore your posts.
    The C80 is a very nice classic refractor, if it is on a Vixen Polaris then it is a EQ-3 class mount and also quite nice.

    This will give you some pointers on picking eyepieces: Article: What Astronomy Eyepieces should I get for my Telescope?
    Plossl and Orthoscopics will work very well with it, if you do not mind used then the Vixen LVW are excellent wider field of view eyepieces as well.
    A decent quality diagonal such as the GSO 2” is a nice upgrade too.

    I have both a C80 and a Premium 80. Pretty much the same scope. They are great telescopes and a lot of fun to use.

    A good set of eyepieces with these scopes, especially if on a budget, are the GSO Plossl eyepieces. Agena Astro and other vendors carry them. Quite affordable.
