    Default Eyepieces for Konusmotor 114



    I intend to buy some eyepieces and filters for my telescope from Germany.

    I would like to instruct whether these eyepieces are a good buy or not.

    Thanks.

    Looks like a pretty good buy, David. I would consider the Baader Hyperion Zoom, but it is more money and doesn't come with all the filters and stuff.

    Have you finally sorted out your focus issue?

    The problem seems to be not enough light is entering through the scope. The background of the stars is so dark. Well maybe I am expecting to much from my humble scope. Initially I wanted to see the skies in my scope the same as the Hubble Telescope - and hey I concluded that it is impossible.

    However the eyepieces from astroshop in Germany can make my observations more interesting.

    We'll see.
