    Sounds like your wife is leaning towards tacit approval to purchase another eyepiece. Seize the opportunity.

    Most of the folks on this forum could have started an annual "my eyepiece collection is now complete" thread over the years.

    Trust us on this one, your eyepiece collection is never complete.

    Wouldn't the 10mm be more useful though? 24mm is awfully close to the 21mm even at f10 on your SCT and the jump from 13mm to 8mm is quite large.
