    Not really an answer to the original question, but extended fuzzy objects are best viewed with a pair of, say, 70-100mm binoculars. They have a big advantage that you easily can take them with you should you visit southern places from where you can really observe a lot of stuff that they are good for.
    I just really wanted a big Plossl lol.

    Sorry Shorty Barlow, my friend,

    I forgot about what is restricting you.

    On a side line, how would you rate the 35mm Eudiascopic?

    Best,

    It's OK, I have to think all these things through and plan for every eventuality (like falling over) lol. I like the large eye lens of the 35mm Eudiascopic and the whole EP is fairly lightweight so might make a good bino pair. I've only really used it in relatively slow Cassegrain telescopes. I've been told they are at their best at f/8 and slower. They disappeared off the market for a couple of years recently. Mine is a Baader, but I am pretty sure they have been marketed by other distributors.

    Hello Shorty Barlow,

    I have seen this Eudiascopic recently https://www.baader-planetarium.com/d...%C2%BC%22.html
    and according to the photo of the amber multicoatincs, they are looking a bit better than the old ones.

    Best,

    Yeah, it looks like mine. They say that these are older stock and they've decided to sell them off singly. I believe the 35mm has an AFOV of 45.6°. I've always wondered who actually manufactures these. I'm fairly certain they are hugely influenced by a Masuyama design.

The USPS will track anything from the Pacific to the Eastern Seaboard. As soon as it gets into the UK it disappears.

    Give Postman Pat the sack I say. He'd probably only lose it at Heathrow anyway ROTFLMAO.
    It is a good strategy to have a full range of EPs from 3mm to 55mm, in particular if you have several scopes, and TV 55mm is a quality EP. So, why not? Enjoy!

    This might be the BCO 6mm barlowed down to 3mm, https://www.google.com/search?client...NV35QH5CJVLXM:

    According to my tests, the BCO 6mm can be barlowed quite well with the Baader Q-Turret triplet Barlow.
    It has worked on some globular cluster, but it would not make sense on the planets I guess.

    Here might be better the Baader 3.6mm Symmetric Diascope Edition, optimized for F/6 and slower refractors,
    like the Zeiss Diascope F/6


    Most of the today manufactured designs bellow 5mm are barlowed.
    The Baader Eudiascopic 3.8mm is also barlowed.

    Best,

    Well ya.

    I had TV Radian 3mm in the past, which was pretty good. Now I am considering 3mm Delite and even 2.3mm Vixen SLV.
