Bill,

The Meade 24.5 SWA is a very good buy right now. The 5000 series are coming out so the price on the 4000 series is dropping. I had one (until today) and really liked it. The only reason I sold it was the 27 pan fit my progression better.

The University Optics 24mm Konig (60 degree field) would really do the job for you, I think. Helix (check out the sponsor page) sells these over the internet.

24mm Panoptic. You can't go wrong.
