    The Televue 24mm Panoptic, hands down. It is brilliant in every scope I own (see my sig) and sharp to the edges. If I had a binoviewer I would own a pair of them...

    I do a lot of observing of "Cores" in Nebulae and looking at the fine details of planets. I can't live without my TeleVue Nagler 3-6mm clickstop zoom it's the finest ep I own and don't need anything else for my Z10 . I had to get a TeleVue Paracorr type2 to correct the coma in the Dob. Since I've got those 2 pieces it's a better scope w/ better views.

    My 32mm plossl. Sharpness, simplicity, versatility, wide field. That's my favorite.
