    I agree, the Nagler is a good choice. On the other end of your scope's capabilities, the low magnification/wide field end, you can get away with cheap plossls, generally under $50, Lots of them on eBay.

    Thanks for the info Pierre,
    The scope and the Nagler will definitely set me back money wise, so low magnification EP in the price range of $50 sounds like a wonderful idea!

    I have one of these. It's great.

    Telescope 1.25" Plossl 40mm eyepiece Multicoated 40MM on eBay.ca (item 280451277576 end time 13-Jun-10 06:58:35 EDT)

    If you are anything like me, you will find yourself using the scope at lo mags mostly, especially with a dob. Objects tend to scoot across the FOV uncomfortably fast at high mags.

    Just remember , When you are talking about eyepieces ...Get the best you can afford ... You have to look through these things and cheaper optics may or may not give an optimal view ...Eyepieces that do not offer the best view may get purchased , used once or twice and put in the eyepiece case to collect dust ...Also , when looking for eyepieces , look for fully multi-coated and not just coated or multi coated ....More coatings offer more light to pass through to your eye ball ....

    Right, I should have mentioned that the 40mm was for my F12 Mak. Longer focal lengths are more forgiving of EP quality.

    Alright, after getting the Nagler i will hold off buying another eyepiece until i have the money for a good one! I will take the fully-multi coated idea into account as well! Thanks to all

    Go for it. They're expensive but well worth it. My type6 7mm and 5mm get a lot of use! I'd really like to get the 11mm as well but that will have to wait.

    This is definitely the most helpful forum i have ever been to Oh and the avatar? An acquaintance of mine came up with the idea! The antlers are carrying the fabric of time and reality I remember we were obsessed with spiritual exploration, and well this came to fruition.

    Funny thing is, that while i was exploring various religions, i understood how space had all the answers for me. Maybe they were not in clear sight, but they are indeed there!
    I hope you get the idea, as i always have a hard time explaining my spiritual theories.
