eyepice opinion

Posted By Mike Baron

hello i just bought a meade 7 mak and im looking at the meade uwa eyepices im looking at the 18mm and the 14 is that a good choice ,i already have a 22mm vixen 68mm ep .and would the 8.8 uw be pushing the scopes limits , the dealer in chicago claims the 6.7 would be a good choice but i feel that would be too much well thanks for the input i know i dont punchuate very well (lol) well clear skies and may the force be with you 8)
