    The weakest link in the optical chain is the large nut located directly behind the eyepiece/ camera. - Gabrielle

    thing in some balance of perspective. Apos are awesome, but long focus Achros aren't that far behind them - Siriusandthepup (CN)

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)

    One nice attribute about the 4SE is that it is not picky about eyepieces so you don't need an expensive one. A Celestron 12.5mm X-CEL will do nicely
