    Default Russell Optics 2" high power EP: Thoughts, opinions, and comments?



    Looked at the 2" 10.5mm and 13mm EPs on the Russell Optics website and am intrigued. What's the group think on them?

    Never used one. I'm trying to figure out where a 2in eyepiece would be beneficial at that focal length though. All of my 2in eyepieces are 25mm and up. Everything below 25mm is 1.25. Below 25mm about the only thing a 2 in eyepiece will add is weight. It will still work good though.

    Now where did I put that clear sky button!

    I have a few of the Russell Optics 2" eyepieces and I'm very happy with them. The highest power I have is a 15mm and it provides great views even when barlowed.
