    Default Ordered a few new eyepieces for my CPC1100



    Well I received my new CPC 1100 two weeks ago and thought I'd add a few eyepieces. I forgot how expensive this hobby can be. I purchased a moon filter also because it felt like I was having lasik surgery looking at the moon. This is what I've ordered so far:

    35mm Panoptic
    17mm Nagler
    12mm Nagler
    Orion 2" moon filter (I also added a 2" Astro Tech diagnol)

    I'm thinking about the 26mm nagler also, does anyone have any experience with this one?

    When I bought the scope I purchased the Astro Tech Paragon (spelled wrong?) 12MM and the TMB 9MM at the same time. The Astro Tech seems to be a really nice piece but the FOV is a little small and the eyerelief is a little short. All in all I'm pretty happy with the purchase, my wife actually said she would like it better if she could see more of the sky at once. The light turned green and I placed the order
    I may be broke, but I'm happy

    Well the eyepieces came in today and they look pretty sweet. I'm surprised at the weight for the 17 and 12. Of course it's going to be cloudy and rainy for the next few days but I'll be ready when it clears up.
