    Default retical eyepiece for finderscope

    Hi all,
    just acquired an Antares 80mm finderscope with diagonal. I dont have an eyepiece, so what eyepiece would you recommend. I dont know the focal length but suspect it will be about 300mm or so.
    Anyone got this finderscope?

    I have a 9mm reticle illuminated eyepiece but cant rack it in far enough
    to focus, but I think this is to powerful anyway.

    Celestron Celestar C8, Celestron Onyx 80ED, Antares 80mm finderscope, and Tasco 60mm, Nikon D5000, 10X50 Binocs, SLT GoTo Mount, CG5 mount, Samsung SDC435 and Mintron and a Phillips SPC 800

    Try longer fl eps until you know what is needed. The illuminator seems to be rather standard, so you may be able to get a reticle ep without buying another illuminator. Mine works with about a 25 mm ep.
