Setting up an observatory, I have been comparing a lot of telescopes and EPs. A question arises. For a 1200-1800 FL telescope, I find that I am using all 2 inch EPs--the new 2/1.25 inch Ethos (13mm), an old 9 mm Nagler with a 2/1.25 inch fit, a 22 Nagler, a 35 mm and a 41 mm Panoptic. So except for the very shortest of FLs, who needs 1.25 inch EPs? Am I missing something here?
