    Default Acquired a 12mm Nagler



    My 12mm type4 Nagler just arrived. I've wanted one of these for a long time.
    I'm looking forward to slapping this on the dob.

    Nice! Congrats on that. Should prove a good one for faint galaxies.

    Enjoy! My 12mmT4 and 17mmT4 are my two favourite eyepieces - I find the longer eye relief makes them more pleasant to use .

    Well, it's two weeks since the original post.

    Is there a verdict? Was it worth the money?
