    Default Re: Meade 40mm 5000 series VS Meade 36mm 4000 series QX

    I would go with 36 mm 70 degree. It will give you about the same FOV, but you will appreciate a bit higher mag and a bit darker background.

    I hardly ever use my 42mm 65* GSO since I got 70* 26mm. 26 mm provides wide enough FOV for finding DSOs and it is easier to spot them at a bit higher mag.
