    Default eyepieces.....



    hi all,

    with my re-awakening to astronomy, i've been acquiring meade 3&4000 plossl's
    and am in need of some ep's in the 20-40mm range. i've not been too
    successful on the ebay front for these so was thinking about the antares
    ep's.
    does anyone have any experience with them?
    the 32mm & 40mm are only available in the sub £20 super plossl range (52 deg
    FoV). anyone know if that's £20 wasted? they'll be used on a 900mm F9
    reflector if that's relevant.

    thanks in advance for any useful replies.

    if you don't want to post public, remove the mint with the hole to reply!!!

    That's a rather large telescope - 90cm aperture. I presume you mean
    100mm f/9 refractor (possibly reflector; 100mm being quite small)?

    Not barlows but i got a 20mm ep made by seben! The view is average(i dont
    have any decent ep's to compare) in the centre of the field but complete
    pants at the outer edges...
