    Default I need better Eye Relief



    My old Eyes are having trouble with my Orion 10mm Sirius Plossl 6.5mm Eye Relief
    Nice images but not fun viewing

    there is a Celestron X-Cel LX 12 mm for sale ( used ) $ 70.00 CDN but a 1 hr one way drive
    16mm Eye Relief and 60 ° FOV

    Are there any other alternatives ??

    Thanks in advance

    The X-Cels are good EPs for the price, I actually own the 12mm. Eye relief is much more comfortable than with a plossl of similar focal length.
