24mm Pan or 22mm Pan

Hello, I have an 8" f/10 SCT and am looking for a Panoptic or two in my main magnification range. I was going to buy the 22mm Pan, but now I'm thinking about going with both the 24mm and 19mm Pan.

What is the difference between the 24mm and 22mm, other than weight? Is the quality the same in the 24mm, which is only a 1.25" ep? Are the 24mm and 19mm far enough apart in magnification to be useful?

Thanks for any advice out there.

Hi Dave,

FYI, I just posted a comparison on the Eyepiece forum. Unfortunately, it's for my fast refractor rather than an SCT, but may still be of some help.

Happy New Year, Milt
