    Default TV 22mm Nagler or 27mm Panoptic



    I need help deciding which EP to use with my 90mm, F7/663 FL refractor. Which would be most effective on my telescope for a low power EP? Any suggestions would be sweet!

    Hi
    I see from your sig you already have a 24mm Panoptic.
    Cannot really see why you'd want either the 22mm Nagler or the 27mm Panoptic. The 24mm Panoptic already gives you 27x which is surely pretty low power and 2.3 degrees is a pretty wide field.
    Plus a heavy 2" eyepiece will probably bring with it balance issues.
    For how often it would get used I would opt for something cheaper.
    Regards Steve

    You're right, the weight of the EP is one of the reasons why I sold my 35mm Pan. So I thought I would replace it with something lighter like the 27mm Pan. But I was also thinking about getting the 36mm Baader Aspheric. I think I'll sit on it for a while. No real need to rush. Thanks. Besides, I just dumped the money for it into a new Nanuk 945 case.
