    Default 2 Naglers or 1 Ethos?



    I am looking to get some quality eyepieces for my 120mm Refractor. In your experience what would be the better option, the 7mm and 13mm Naglers or a 10mm Ethos?

    To be honest I find that 82 degree FOV eyepieces are just not as "comfortable" to me as 68-70 degree FOV eyepieces are...in fact sold a couple of Naglers and replaced them with a pair of Pentax XWs...so I personally will never own an Ethos...

    Everyone is different but Panoptics and Pentax XW's comprise 90 percent of the eyepieces in my case...

    BUT given the choice (IF I COULD Comfortably use either the Nagler or Ethos in all honestly I'd rather go with the 2 Naglers then the single Ethos...

    A Quantity thing I guess...

    Well I guess I should check both out before I choose. I have yet to look through anything wider than 68 degrees, but 100% sounds very tempting. Anything that pulls me deeper into space with such immersion intrigues me.
