Does my 7" f/7 newt supports a 16mm nagler t2?

Hi,

I am interested in buying a 16mm nagler but I do not know if my telescope balance will be ruined.
I have sucessfully used a 40mm orion sirius plossl. Does the weight of the 40 is similar to the 16 t2 nagler ?
Another problem, does the ep fits into the Orion
Basic 1.25" R&P Focuser ?
Have anyone tried it ?

Thanks

Andre

Hi Andre

as the 16mm Nagler T2 is heavy - 440 g / about 1lb - , it can be too much for your scope. This EP fits into 11/4" and 2" focusers. The Nagler 16mm T5 is only 0.44 lb!

Best wishes,

Manfred
