    Default Erecting eyepiece reccomendations



    I am thinking about getting an erecting eyepiece. I have a great view of Mt Rainier and would like to spend sometime checking it out. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on erecting eyepieces?

    In the telescope world, we generally don't worry about up/down/left/right in the image. In the terrestrial world one does.

    Many times one can choose a different way to position your head so that the image is correct.

    However, there are errecting diagonals for SCT-like scopes (generally under the heading of 45 degree erecting <something or other>.
