I tallied up my observations in AstroPlanner for the last year (there was a huge fall-off after the first 4, so I included all of them):

17T4 .... 45 observations
26T5 .... 29 observations
12T4 .... 19 observations
Pan41 .. 12 observations

16" f/10 SCT.

I've recently started using a DeepSky filter with the Pan41 to counteract the gray sky produced by my local light pollution, so I expect it to fare slightly better going forward (although it's still annoyingly big and heavy).

Nagler 20mm - most used..the thought of gluing it on has crossed my mind at times........
Nagler 12mm - Great to zero in on planets and big globulars
Panoptic 41mm - Gives me a bit of breathing room through the C14

These three with a TV 2X barlow gets me almost everywhere I want to go. I am shopping for a high power to use on my newly acquired FS78....

I've used these ep's on 8, 11, and 14" Celestrons.

Current scopes: C14 and Tak FS78.
