    Red face ep upgrade



    I am thinking about upgrading sometime this year in ultra-wide ep's.
    On a scale of 1-10,what was the wow factor from going to ultra-wides from basic ep's.
    I see there is the ethos line with 100 degree feild of vision,but I may just be satisfied with Ultra-wide.
    On the other hand does anyone own ethos?,what's it like?
    Thanks ,
    Curtis

    Scale of 1 to 10? I reckon that going from the basic 50-52 degree field of view, (given what's presently available) it would be something like this:

    55 deg. - 5 on the scale
    60 - 6
    70 - 7
    82 - 8
    100 - 9
    110 - 10

    Best,

    Hernando

    Hello cmeg1,
    Eyepieces are so subjective. A good idea is to look through as many as you can at star parties, etc..
    I really like 82 degrees and find the 100 degree FoV sort of unnecessary. But that`s what I like. You might like the 100 degrees. Hard to say.
    My 31 mm eyepiece is 72 degrees and I like it just fine.
