I have a Baader and use 16mm Naglers (1.25 corrector) and love the views. I want to get some higher power views and was thinking of getting a pair of 9mm naglers. They are now on sale.

What about the 8-24 TV zoom instead? Any experince/advice. I mostly look at planets, clusters, and few DSO.

thanks howard

Howard:

Personally, I found the TV zooms to be an inferior ep compared to any Nagler.
Limited fov and not as sharp to the edge. I vote for the 9mm Nags. I use the 13mm nags in my Denk II and love them. Very comfortable to use. Between my 24mm pans, the 13mm nags, and my power X switch, I feel I've covered most of the bases.
