    Default suggestions on final decision for EP



    I am finalizing my EP purchase and I would like and suggestions you have.
    I am looking for 3.7mm to 5mm EP to be used mostly in my Astro-Tech 66 but occasionaly in my Meade 2130.
    I am considering the Baader Planaterium for $119 I understand it is heavy. How heavy?,
    I am also considering the Vixon 4mm for $129. It weighs 5.3 oz.
    The Astro-Tech 5mm ED for $60. It weighs 7.2 oz.
    And finaly the Zuhmell Planatary 5mm for $60. I do not know what it weighs.
    The weight is of some importance because of all the accesories you end up using with the Astro-Tech 66 and frequent viewing at a high angle.
    Thanks; Don T.
