Best eye-relief EP for PST ??

Posted By Pat Plunkett

I bought one if those GSO 20mm on e-Bay and am VERY happy with it. The only problem is that there is a lot of vignetting. However the view is GREAT...

Checked it out this morning... There's a HUGE prominence! The plages around the smaller sunspot are kinda cool, too...

PST?

I agree with the other guys - I don't plan on double-stacking either. It's a great scope the way it is! Also, if you have the case (as I do) doubling wouldn't let it fit any more - unless you dismounted everything every time. I bought one of the 20mm GSO eyepieces on eBay and use it - it's a VERY nice combination.

Astro binoculars?

Posted By Pat Plunkett

I have the 15 X 80 Megaviews and am very impressed with their quality and optics. No matter what they say, however, they are right on the edge of being useful for someone (like me) that has the added pain in the !@# of dealing with astigmatism. If you suffer the same fate, I wouldn't go to the 20s.
