    Default New eyepiece ordered and a new chair.



    Just order an ES 68degree 16mm to complement my Q70's. Also a new chair since my old one rusted up. I am excited to see the wider view at a higher power.

    I really really like 68 degree eyepieces in my SE8. Kind of my goldilocks zone. Not too wide. Not to narrow

    That new ES EP will also perform much better in that Dob than those Q70s.

    Yeah. I dont even take out the 38 or 32mm. I like the 26. Its flat across the field and low enough power to locate everthing. My plossls are a nice set, as well, but I really like the wider views especially of OC and galaxies.

    Congrats on the new EP! I love my ES68 16mm. It is one of my most used eyepieces.

    This is one very sharp EP. Also, so tiny and cute.
