    Default On the move..again



    Howdie yall. Since the purchase of my ETX-105, I've been searching for a mid power EP to fill in the gap between my 19mm and 8mm. I've narrowed my search between the GSO 15mm SV, the Meade 4K QX 15mm and the Meade 4K 13.8 SWA. They're priced between $40 on up to $100. I know they all tend to get soft towards the edges on faster scopes but I'm not sure how they would perform on a F14 scope. What are your thoughts/opinions between these EP on slow scopes?

    I think you'd find any of those to be quite good with your telescope. Slow telescopes tolerate Plossls and such very nicely. I have some GSO Superviews and I like them a lot in my ETX-125 which is similarly slow.

    But seriously, even regular Plossls are quite nice in that slow a telescope.

    I've decided to go with the GSO 15 SV. In contrast to the Meade reviews, the GSO seems a good choice in comparison to the QX/SWA's. I my move to TV plossls at a later time, but for now, I feel like l experimenting a little. Thanks for the reply.
