I just purchased a Burgess 1278 with a set of SWA EP's but need a high mag EP. How much power can it deliver for saturn and jupiter? Would the Nagler 3-6 zoom be useful? Any suggestions appreciated

Hi Jerome. When conditions allow, I push my 1278 to over 333x. That's the highest power EP/Barlow combination I have at the moment (6mm EP with 2x Barlow). I don't get too many nights that conditions support this except in the winter. I'll bet the Nagler zoom would be quite useful with the 1278... (Scott)
